    Hi Guys,

    What is the BEST connection between a PIONEER 868 AViS DVD player and a DENON AVR 3805 home cinema receiver?

    Are the I-Link and Denon-Link compatible? Thanks.

    Thanks,

    M.J.

    I'm fairly sure that Denon link & iLink are not compatable.
    For DVD video you are best with coax or perhaps optical. For SACD or DVD-A you will need to use 6 analogue phono cables (3 phono stereo pairs).

    Denon Link & Ilink are not the same connection at all. Denon link is a RJ45 connection. Unfortunately the 3805 has no ilink input so it would be regular coax or toslink with 6 analogue connections for DVD-A & SACD

    Much debated (best between coax or toslink). Personally I use coax.

    The best value for money cables are those sold by Mark Grant on the cable power buy forum. These broadcast quality cables are made using 75 ohm Belden co-axial cable with solid core copper conductor and are terminated with Canare impedance matched phono plugs.

    At £20 for a one metre length cable it would seem silly to settle for anything less but be careful if paying considerably more than this as you could be buying a similar product but with pretty packaging and a well known brand name on the cover and an £80 price ticket.

    Needless to say - I've got one :thumbsup:
