Well, it's the easiest, but not only way. If you know you have your player or transport set to output in LPCM, then you also know when the receiver or pre/pro say MC.
I just got the Denon transport for review for the new magazine I work for;
I'll naturally put in the newest firmware before using it any. I have to say I expect a lot from it as my Sony BDP-S350 that is sub $300 does everything so well functionally, I haven't yet put them into the main rig, but once the Krell Evo 707 comes hopefully late this week or early next I will tear apart the entire rig, ro-do the rack and put them both in and AB them.
