    I am ordering a Pioneer VSX-912K and a Toshiba 3970 as well. I was looking at the picture of the back panel of the DVD player and see that it doesnt have a normal digital out, but rather a digital coaxial. Does this receiver have that? i dont see that listed in the specs of the receiver. Where does a Digital Coax plug into?

    Please respond asap, I have to order cables quick!

    Digital coaxial inputs are just as "normal" as optical ones. Most people agree that either connection offers essentially the same quality.

    That receiver has two digial coaxial inputs--they are listed as Coaxial In on the product spec page.

    thanks for the quick responses guys! I wasnt sure if Coax in was the same as Digital, but thanks for the assurance. I've been using my PS2 for a DVD player for much too long I suppose [​IMG]

    on-off on-off on-off, I can't believe people debate that dig coax sounds different than toslink or vise-versa.
