I've been interested in the Denon DVD-955S. I would primarily be getting this for my DVD collection, but have heard that it really performs well as an audio universal player as well. I have several hybrid SACDs (Dylan, Stones) and have always wanted to hear them at their hi-res best, but have been talked out of getting a SACD player in the past. As my local audio shop put it, the benefit of SACD would be lost on my system since I have a Mirage satellite/ subwoofer setup instead of full-range speakers. As I understood it (and forgive me if I misunderstood) the only way to really benefit from DSD encoding would be to connect the SACD output to the analog inputs on my Arcam AVR100, not use a digital connection. With this connection, I might have an issue with my system's bass management, i.e. not having the Arcam automatically send the lower bass to the sub, etc. In the same conversation, I was told that I COULD connect the SACD player with a digital connection, but that the multiple conversions of digital to analog to digital again might overshadow the benefit of the SACD format itself. Anyway, I noticed that the Denon has a bass management control. Can someone knowledgable better explain what my audio salesperson was trying to tell me? Has SACD/DVD-A technology advanced in the past few years to where a digital connection might not make such a difference? And what about the bass management on the Denon? Would that make a difference in my system? Sorry for my ignorance, but there's no point in purchasing a universal player if I won't hear any benefits from the new formats. Thanks.
