    I read somewhere that you could play DVD-A on a regular dvd player. is this true? Obviously you wouldn't have the multi-ch analog inputs but can you still play them over digital or stereo connections?

    yes. most (if not all) DVD-Audios have either a DD or a DTS 5.1 track, or even a stereo PCM at 48/24. All these will pass thru the digital out of your DVD, and with the DD/DTS you'll get 5.1 surround. On certain players with inadequate bass management for DVD-Audio, the DD/DTS might even sound as good as DVD-A because the DD/DTS stream is properly bass managed by the receiver.

    You can play the DD 5.1 tracks over a digital connection. But no Hi rez multi-ch or stereo.
