    Yet another question I can't fathom out for myself from the non-informative manuals :rolleyes:

    If I connect my DVD(Denon 2910) to Amp (Denon 2105) via the 6 analogue 5.1 ch to Ext.in on amp will this cause confusion between the amp and DVD.

    The reason I ask is I listen to CD's via toslink, DVD movies via digi coaxial. These are assignable on the Denon 2105 avr but how does the amp recognise SACD or DVD-A as apposed to DVD movie and CD audio.

    Is there some setup menu for these formats on the DVD player or amp.

    Thanks all you experts :hiya:


    Edit; Sorry think I found the answer hidden away under Multi Channel Mode. Just worried now that this will show lip sync probs by routing direct to amp without passing through DLP tv first!

    Use the EXT input..and on some DVD players, you may have to change the settings for DVD-A / SACD.

    I know the Arcam, looks for DVD-A first, then DVD-V, then CD.

    Cheers mjn thats great. :smashin:

    Finaly found in DVD manual that the digital connection can be switched off using "Pure Direct Mode" which allows analogue only signal and cuts interference.

    Just asked Mark Grant for info on his analogue interconnects, can't wait :clap:

    Is the music sound improvement really worth it?

    Wishy,

    don't know about the Denon but on my Pioneer you simply select 'Multi Channel Input' for anything coming in on the analogue connection.

    Improvement, depends on the quality of the DACS or either the amp or DVD, or external DAC if you use one.

    Most people try both, and keep the connection method they prefer.
