    Hi there,

    I hope someone can help me. I recently purchased the Yamada 5520 DVD player (that is by the way very good) and have a question regarding the audio connections it has.

    It has phono style connections on the back for 6 speakers (i.e. already decoded 5.1 output). It also has digital direct connections (both optical and electrical).

    My question is - what is the point of all the phono connections? You can't plug speakers directly in to them so they seem to be only useful to connect to an AV amp that has inputs for all 6 speakers. This being the case then why would you bother when the said amp would presumably have a digital or optical connection and also be capable of decoding the DD5.1 or DTS itself. Am I missing something ?? The only possible use I can think of is if you have three old 2 channel amplifiers and wanted to reuse them - not very likely surely??
