    kiddi,

    Yes - 3 stereo interconnects, or 6 individual ones.

    Regards

    Unless you have the Pioneer DVD & receiver with firewire link then RCA is the ONLY way to get SACD (& DVD-A).
    Optical & coax do not carry the SACD data as it can only be decoded on the DVD/CD player and not by any AV receiver (except as mentioned above).

    Does this advice apply to DVD-A? My problem is this. I have just bought a set of speakers and moved from listening to DVDs in stereo to surround. All is is fine except when I play my DVD-A (and yes my Marantz is a DVD-A player) the Pro logic symbol comes up on my Yamaha AV & I don't get surround, or particularly decent quality. I've tried digital and 6 channel. Any tips?

    Yes, this does include DVD-A
    To get the full DVD-A sound you need 6 RCA analogue connections from DVD to AV amp. Set the DVD to output 6Ch analogue and the AV to External input (6Ch analogue).
    My 3802 does try to output a DPL2 signal if I forget to set the DVD to analogue output or external input on amp.
    So to get a DVD-A to play I do the following:

    Set DVD to output 6ch analogue from players audio setup menu
    Set DVD-A disk to play DVD-A (instead of DTS or stereo) from disk menu
    Set 3802 input to 'Ext in'
    Sit back and anoy the neighbours :devil:

    It is a lot of playing around to get a DVD-A to play correctly, but well worth it IMHO.
