    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.

    me thinks not compatible, soundwise you would have to use a coaxial. if you havent bought the Denon yet wait for Pio 2014. It will feature i-link

    Definitely incompatible. I think Denon's version is a custom link, whereas Pioneers iLink is a standard format (I could be wrong).

    I know for sure that they do not work together though.

    Sapkans suggestion is the way to go I think.

    I was probably gonna go for the DENON AVR 3805 and then upgrade to a DENON 5910 DVD Player (or a DENON HD-DVD player) when that comes out next year. What do you think?
