    I have a limited budget and my main love is music, anyway I would like to watch my DVD's with better sound than my TV gives me, so my questions are:

    Can I connect a DVD player to my Marantz 7200 stereo amplifier?
    (no laughing please) :laugh:


    and what sort of cable will I need to use audio or digital?

    Thanks

    Andy

    I think you can.

    If it's a stereo amplifier then obviously you're only going to be getting 2 channel sound. The DVD player will probably have a coax/optical outputs which is the digital output. This transmits a DD/DTS signal and will need an amp with a decoder (AFAIK)

    You'll need an an analogue input. So all you need is a pair of phonos - wack em on the analogue L/R output and connect it to a free assignment on the amp.

    Actually - just thinking about it, I think you can change the soundtrack options to trasmit in 2 channels so you might be able to use a coax/optical cable - someone else might be able to advise with regards to that.

    Thanks for the reply mate, that makes sense. I will have to contact a shop to find out the best way of connecting it up.

    Thanks again :smashin:
