    I am looking to upgrade to a six or seven channel amp or reciever and have a quick question. Am i right in asuming that DVD-A and SACD players only output the multichannel sound through 6 phono outputs? None of the current amps can decode a digital signal can they? I am thinking of the DVD -3800 as my new player but if i also wanted to eventually get SACD too, depending on how the two formats turn out there really needs to be two multichannel inputs on the amp to cope with both doesnt there?

    Only amp i know with two 7.1 inputs are the Denon AVC A1 SE/SR.
    The AVC A1SR also has digital inn for DVD audio if you use it with Denon DVD A1. This kombo costs something like 5000£, so it might be a litle expensive.
    There are probably some switchboxes you could use.
    Denon are going to give us some big news today about the DVD 3800 and DVD A1. Check out this link:

    The Sony STR-VA555ES has 2 7.1 inputs. It's also interesting to know that Marantz is planning a SACD + DVD-A DVD player for release at the end of this year.
