For a couple years now I have been feeding a digital signal from my Toshiba SD4800 (DolbyD 5.1 decoder equipped) to my NADT760 (DolbyD 5.1 and DTS 5.1 decoder equipped) with a decent WireWorld digital-coax cable. I recently decided to buy six interconnects so I could utilize the DVD players DVD-Audio decoder. The other night I decided to try out listening to a DolbyD 5.1 movie soundtrack via the DVD players six analogue outputs and not the digital-caox output, opting to use the DVD player's DolbyD 5.1 decoder instead of the NAD's DolbyD 5.1 decoder. I was shocked at the results. When I switched from the digital output to the analogue output my rear speakers came alive in a way I never thought possible. The dialogue was cleaner and more focused. Each speaker seemed more distinct and seperate. The bass was tighter. All around I found it to be a more pleasant listening experience. The problem is that the SD4800 DVD player has NO bass management, whatsoever. My B&W bookshelf speakers seemed to be working overtime as a result. Plus, my sub was nearly (not completely) innactive. Still the sound was always significantly better whenever I switched from the digital-coax over to the analogue outs. Much better! I feel I need to get to the bottom of this. You see, it's driving me crazy knowing that all this time I haven't been realizing the true potential of these movie soundtracks. Call me crazy, but I would prefer to feed a digital signal to my NAD receiver than to use the analogue signal. Questions: Is it a cable issue? Is my digital-coax cable not feeding my NAD receiver a good enough signal? Should I purchase a better digital-coax cable? Or, is it that the NAD's decoder is inferior to the Toshiba decoder? Or, am I missing something? Please advise. Thanks!
