I have an STRDA-777ES receiver and have recently purchased a DVP-NS999ES DVD/SACD player. I note that the player has internal DD and DTS decoders. I'll naturally be connecting the SACD via the 5.1 analog outputs. Does anyone know whether I'd be better served leaving decoding of DVDs to the receiver or taking advantage of the player's decoders. I know the 777 had Sony's state of the art at the time it was manufactured, but don't know what, if any, advancements have been made between then and the manufacture of the 999.
