    I have a Yamaha DSPa-595a and a Pioneer 626D DVD Player. I use an IXOS Coaxial Cable to connect it to my DVD Player.

    The sound is fantasic, however I am trying to think of ways of improving it furthur. I was reading the Review of the Pioneer on this site and HC said that they could not tell the difference between the Onboard decoder on the Pioneer and a Yamaha DSP-A1.

    This got me thinking. If I used my Pioneer to decode the signal instead of the Amplifer then would i get any improvment in performance? (this would be done using the 6 channel inputs).

    Well?

    Any help would be grateful!

    What I personly think is NOT.
    Well you used for the digital output of your dvd player to your receiver a digital Coaxial RCA cable.
    This caus a better sound quality than 6 analog cables i think.

    Isn't there generally better decoding in integrated amps/processors?
    I would have said avoid on-board decoders.
