I have a Yamaha 2095 mated to Boston VR975 mains and VR12 center for my front soundstage in my HT. I was always feeling something was lacking when listening to music. I always enjoyed the sound of my old HK AVR40 so I incorporated between my DVD player (Sony330) and the Yammie. I have the DVD player connected to the Yammie via the digital outs for whatching movies and also to the HK CD input (analog out from DVD) which is then output to the CD input of the Yammie. Music is so much more pleasing this way. And the DSPs still work as well. I'm wondering what the effect of the HK is on this configuration. I'm assuming that I am still utilizing the amps in the Yammie. What in the HK is making the music sound so much better?
