    Just got my Denon 2910 today :)
    So far so good except for one issue. Having not had a DVD-A player before, I was looking forward to listening to some discs I have instead of just via the standard DVD Video DTS tracks. However when I select this option on the discs, the Denon appears to play but I get no sound from my Yamaha 2400 receiver. Connection is via co-axial cable. Works fine in all other respects and I get 5.1 surround via DTS or DD. Am I missing a simple setting - anyone any ideas???

    DVD-A (and SACD) doesn't work over the normal digital (optical/co-ax) connections, it's decoded inside the player not the amp, so you need to use the six pre-outs on the back of the player connecting them to the ext-in on your amp. You don't need special leads though, three pairs of normal stereo interconnects will do the job.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks :thumbsup: That would explain it.
    Was not expecting that. Thought DVD-A would be a step up in sound quality but with it going over analogue cables does it not detract something? Guess I will have to see if it makes a difference and worth increasing the jungle round the back on a permanent basis!

    Its certainly not always the case that digital is better than analogue.

    I was advised that listening to music CDs on my 2900 would be better via a stereo analogue connection than using the coax digital. And it is. Use good quality stereo pairs and you'll be fine.
