Default Re: HDMI Connect ???

You will be able to use many DVD-A's via HDMI however you will be listening to the DD or DTS soundtrack, a TRUE DVD-A disc will not transmit over the HDMI cable, so you would be short changing yourself resolution of the format for convienence.

You should also be able to accept DD/DTS from your cable or satelite box over HDMI, as this is the highest resolution audio you get for TV, it is fine. Again you could also do it via a coaxial or optical digital connection if you so desired.

I suspect when you try an SACD you will not have multichannel audio with this setup and will need the analog connections I mentioned earlier.
