He has the new Denon 2308, it does all the new audio codecs but I understand your sentiment. I had my Meridian 861 connected via coaxial digital to all my sources and then ran video separately. It's a good work around, but once the new pre/pro's come out with the advanced audio codecs, it will be outdated.
