    Hi
    I have just ordered a Pioneer VSX-AX5Ai Multichannel Receiver. I will be using this with a Pioneer DV-868AVi DVD Player.

    My question is 'Which way of connecting the DVD Player to the Receiver will acheive the best sound quality whilst playing DVD Films?'

    I believe that the best way is to use i.Link (Firewire/IEEE1394). However I have heard that Copy protected 96kHz DVD-Video discs are down sampled to 48kHz when using this connection.
    What does this mean? I do not know what 'normal' DVD-Video discs sample rate is. Does this mean that when I play a normal film (such as 'The Bourne Supremacy' that I bought yesterday) I will get a 48kHz down sampled sound? If so would I get a better audio using a Component connection?

    Many thanks for any help or advice stating which is the best audio connection to use
