    Just treated myself to a HD-A1 from Movietyme

    Now what will I need to get the best sound quality when I connect it to my Denon 4306 Amp ?

    Lots of phono leads to connect via analogue.

    HDMI cable from the Tosh to the Denon if you want Hi-Res PCM in the digital domain. You can then apply bass management, PLIIx, EQ etc etc to it.

    Not much more to explain really, that will give you the best possible. You could use the analog outs of the Tosh but you can't do anything to that signal when it gets to the EXT In's of the Denon. The 4306 has no DSP processing on it's External Inputs.

    Yep. You'll also have to make sure that in the HDMI Assign menu the Audio option is set to AMP.

    Know this will probably sound stupid but does it not have a digital out like on most DVD players ? if it does what are the disadvantages of using this ?
