Hello. I have an Onkyo TX-DS989 and a Panasonic DVD-CP72 player. My question concerns the hookup for the DVD-Audio side of the DVD player. I just purchased my first DVD-A disc today, and I also bought 6 cables to hook up to the DB-25 multichannel hookup on the back of the 989 and the individual outputs on the Panny, but since I have my Panny hooked up through my optical input I can't seem to get the DB-25 individual cable hookup to work. For some reason I thought that for DVD-A you should use the individual hookups and not the digital inputs for the best sound. Am I thinking correctly? If so, does anyone out there have a 989 and has anyone used the DB-25 input? How should I hook everything up to have the best sound on both DVD's and DVD-A's? Sorry about all the questiosn, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
