Hi All , I have just purchased a basic component home cinema setup consisting of SONY STRDB2000 + SONY SA-VE835ED + SONY DVP-NS955 + SONY VPL-HS50 (get the SONY trend here ). My question as a newbee is how (which would be best) to connect to DVD/CD player to the AMP - should I use the component audio (ie. decoded 5.1 etc) or should I use the digital audio stream and decode it in the AMP. The AMP is a digital AMP I don't know if it is best to use the AMP to decode and ampify or use the DVD to decode? Which would give me more control? I could just connect both and try it out (when it arrives!!) Thanks, Jason.
