    Hi,

    I have been looking at reviews and details of the Pioneer DV-464 DVD Player and have found some details that say it doesn't have an integrated audio decoder.

    Does this mean it doesn't play normal audio CDs?

    I have read that it plays DVDs, DVD+-R(W)s, JPGs, MP3 and WMAs so I guessed that it plays audio CDs but am not sure after reading this. I thought all DVD players will play normal audio CDs

    I am not after anything that does DVD-A or SACDs but would like to play normal audio CDs on this if I buy it.


    Whilst I am here the system I am looking at is

    Pioneer DV-454 (DVD Player)
    Pioneer 301 (AV Receiver)
    Pioneer SV40 (AV Speaker set)

    Does nayone have any opinions on this?

    Cheers

    SteveC

    Hi,

    I think they mean it doesn't have built-in DTS and DD decoders which would output through 6 analogue phono connections, instead of a digital bitstream from the optical or coaxial outputs. They aren't necessary if your amp also has the the required decoders. Hope this helps.
