I just bought Moody Blues 'Days of Future Passed' on DVD-A. I have only listened to it with headphones, but it appears there are some small, but very sharp 'clicking' sounds that come up.

I know this is vauge, but any ideas? I have the normal CD and it works fine (CD player hooked up with toslink cable, just like the DVD player), but the DVD-A seems to be acting a bit funny.

Thanks!

Kenneth,

To begin with, Days of Future Passed is a DTS-encoded CD, not a DVD-Audio disc.

After that, I would suggest that you try using your HT processor to decode the stream and see if it still clicks.

Yes, it is the toslink out and my receiver is processing it.

I use my receiver to decode both music CD's and DVD's, and have never had this issue.

Kenneth,

I've never had a problem with this disc on countless pieces of gear running the gamut from $300 receivers to $20K seperates.....

Is this just at the start of the disc? If so, it is possible that this is your receiver switching from PCM decoding for CD output to DTS output.

I have had this same problem on all of my DVD audio's. If it only plays in 2 channel I get a clicking in the center. If it plays 5.1 I still get that same sound. I have a yamaha rxv-1400 and pioneer dvd-563a.

If he had a hi-rez player it could decode the bitstream on-board. That may help him isolate the problem between his player and receiver.

it wouldn't, although, as said, it'd probably also be able to decode it.

the reason i asked that is because, from the initial post, he seemed confused about the dvd-a vs. dts format, in general. then it became apparent to me that he might not have a hirez player and was using the wrong terminology altogether. that's all. and i was trying to get a handle on where he's doing his decoding, exactly; whether he, indeed, has analog multichannel outs. heading in the direction chuck alludes to.

Chuck,

Your assumption is that all DVD-A players can decode DTS on board.

This is not always the case.

Cheers,
