    I'm upgrading my receiver to a 45tx (picked up a remaining one at a local stereo shop) to go along with my Denon 1600 DVD player.

    Question: Which piece would do a better job with the digital conversion, the receiver or the DVD player?

    Is there anybody out there with both pieces that have done some experimenting? Thanks!

    Follow up question: I have not taken advantage of the DVD-audio capabilities of the Denon yet, but hope to shortly. Does that require the analog connections to the receiver?

    I would send a digital out from the Denon to the Pioneer for DVD-Video to take advantage of the higher processing power including the equalizer.

    For DVD-Audio, you will need to run the 5.1 analog outs from the Denon to the multi-channel inputs on the 45TX and select that input when you want to play a DVD-A disc.
