My old Oppo 93 died so I bought a new Yamaha BD-A1060. The Yamaha does everything but DVD A's. I have quite a few from the old days. I looked online and someone said they do play DVD A's. Sure enough when I fired one up it played as a multi-PCM through my new Anthem. This is exactly what the display read out as when I played a DVD A through the old Oppo which was DVD A capable. What gives? The old Oppo had audio cable jacks which I used with an old receiver, but when running the DVD A through an HDMI cable I'm getting the same (multi PCM) result through my receiver. It's probably a dumb question but I'm wondering what's going on? Has HDMI superceded the old DVD A format?
