    Hi there!
    I'm not sure if it's the correct forum to post this question...
    I have a Panasonic S97 dvd player connected to a Denon 2805 amp with a digital cable. The Panny can decode HDCD cd's, but the Denon isn't HDCD compliant. So I was wondering, when I play a HDCD what happens? Is the higher definition lost, like playing the cd with a non-HDCD player?

    oohh...not sure on this.....i've yet to come across a HDCD disc...lol....(i dont buy lots of music really, more just the odd album that really impresses me, and i guess none of them went the HDCD route)

    I'm guessing using a digital connection it will only send the normal signal if the Denon doesnt have the HDCD ability......this is purely based on a common sense approach and may not be valid...lol
