Hi guys,

I am contemplating what kind of cable connedtion to use to connect my Panasonic DVD player and my Sony Amp. I have 3 choices

1. Digital optical cable(Toslink connections on both ends)
2. Normal audio out from DVD(2RCA - 2RCA)
3. Multichannel ou from the dvd player( it has separate connections for centre speaker, subwoofer, front speakers and surround seakers)

If i use choice 3 then the decoding of sound will be done in the DVD itself and output to the necessary channels(i don't know if this is a good thing?)

My amp is a sony HTDD1000 a 6.2 system.

If your amp is a good one, let it do the decoding - I use TOSLink and like the results. My setup involves a Denon Receiver and Pioneer DVD.

use TOSLink or optical or digital coaxial for best quality. because it's digital, signal sent from dvd player to the AMP which will decode it.

Ah! Mauricio beats me to the response!
