    Hi all, I have a question. At the moment i am running a Denon 3020 pro logic amp using RCA lead to connected from my DVD player (Pioneer DV444) to the amp. I want to upgrade to a Pioneer 714 to get the digital experience from my DVD player and PLII for TV Broadcasts - Sky

    Can i connect using one of my RCA leads to digital coxial out of my DVD player to the digital coxial in the new amp (Pioneer 714)

    The reason is all my leads are underneath the floor and i don't want to lift the carpet and floorboards, my wife would kill me.


    The reason i want to buy a Pioneer 714 is beacuse i am running a 5.1 system
    Do i need to upgrade to 6.1 or 7.1 when i only have 5.1 speakers?

    Fronts Mission M74i
    Centre M7c2
    M&S Active sub
    Rears - Canon

    All advice would be welcome

    John

    You can use the existing leads, it will work; though ideally the digital coax is of 75 Ohm impedance (normal interconnects are 50 Ohm).

    Not sure if I understand your question correctly but you don't need to upgrade unless you want 6.1 or 7.1 sound and the additional speakers/amplification required for it.
