    Which should I be concerned with.....a dvd with its own dolby & dts decoder or one that depends on the receiver decoder. I am thinking of purchasing the Onkyo 898 receiver, & want a good dvd player to go with it. But should I purchase one with or without its own decoder.

    Most people use the decoder in the receiver, otherwise you will have to use the 5.1 outputs on the DVD and plug them into the 5.1 inputs on the receiver. This uses 6 interconnects, and may bypass the bass management of the receiver.
