I have been into h/c for around 7 years now but haven't ventured into DVD-A etc.... Mainly because I have a reasonable CD collection. After reading a few posts on different forums I am unsure of a few things. Can I play DVD-A or SACD to full benefit ie: Not in DD/DTS but in 5.1 audio as it's meant to be on my Phillips 762DVD player. I read somewhere that to play it as DVD-A you must have 5.1 analoge outputs (which mine has) as it won't play from the digital output due to copyright or something. I have looked on the Phillips website and found no mention of any Phillips DVD's playing SACD or DVD-A. I have looked in the manual, it says it can play MP3's at various bitrates : 32,64,96,128,192,256 (kbps) Sampling frequencies : 32,44.1,48 (khz) DA coverter 24 bits Digital Audio Format : DTS/DD @16,20,24 bits PCM @44.1,48,96 (khz) I have made a few mp3 discs using various bitrates all work great, but I am curious as to whether it can play DVD-A or not using the analoge outputs. Also according to the manual it has 2 lasers 1 for cd's 1 for DVD's Would that affect anything?
