    I have a Pioneer D-S633A DVD player and a Kenwood KRF-X7775D a/v receiver. Both provides 5.1 audio input (receiver) and output (player).

    If I want to enjoy DVD audio disc, do I need to use these connectors or can I use the digital connectors to connect both devices together?

    Also, the DVD player is capable of 192KHz/24bit audio out, whereas the a/v receiver is 96KHz/24bit. If I want to enjoy the 192KHz/24bit output, how can I connect the player to the receiver? Any pros and cons to consider?

    fyi, I'm a newbie to audio/visual stuff and am here to learn.

    Hi

    To get DVD-Audio you HAVE to connect the 5.1 analog outputs.

    DVD-Audio is not output via a digital signal.

    I´m not too knowledgeable about the 192/24, 96/24 information.

    But i dont think there are many DVD-Audio discs actually recorded in the higher format, i could be wrong though.

    Basically, the player will convert the digital signal and pass it on to the amp in analogue form.

    Someone with greater knowledge on the subject will no doubt post an answer!!

    Yep, you must connect 5.1 (6 RCA/phono cables) for DVD-A, then the player will do the decoding up to 192/24.

    There is a DVD sound format available for 96/24 (on DVD Video discs) which can be decoded by your amp but it's quite rare and not related to DVD-A (call it "Audio-DVD" if you like ...).

    I see that the Denon 3802 has an 7.1 input
    Are there actually DVDs out there that have a 7.1 output ?
    I suppose you can connect a DVD with a 5.1 output to that 7.1 input ?

    Denon have futureproofed (to some extent) their amps for any new formats that might emerge.

    You can connect a dvd with 5.1 outputs to the 7.1 inputs.

    cheers

    Yes. And IMHO there are no DVD players (or any other equipment) with 7.1 output ... yet.
