Pioneer has announced a DVD-Audio/Video/SACD player, the DV-47Ai, with a FireWire (i.link) output for connection to the companion VSX-49TXi receiver. The output allows multichannel digital audio to be passed from the player to the receiver over a single FireWire cable, which in turn enables the receiver to handle bass management for all three multichannel formats in the digital domain. Both units are do in stores later this year. Any comments from you Elite owners out there!!
