    Just fell off the turnip truck, at least with respect to home theater. Your FAQ's cleared up a lot of my initial confusion. Still perplexed with one item tho...

    My DVD player manual, Audio section, states "If you connect amplifier with DVD player's coaxial or optical output, please choose Raw or PCM in Digital Output column.

    Can anyone clarify this for me?

    Thanks,

    Don

    Don, you want RAW, this will send the unaltered digital signal to your reciever. PCM would send the downmixed data like you would hear from the stereo RCA jacks
