Sweet! Using DenonLink III is definitely the ultimate connection method for going into the Denon AVP for high rez audio. And you're already very familiar with the sound using an all digital connection with your Meridian 861. Now you can see how multi-channel music sounds through the Denon AVP via DenonLink III and see how it compares to what you remember hearing through your Meridian 861.
