    All of the DVD-Audio discs that I now have are six channel, except for Casino Royale which is a two channel DVD-A disc. On my Denon 5700, using the direct digital input mode with Casino Royale gives a front panel display of 96k. Apparently, the RP-91 is passing 96k to my Denon 5700. None of my six channel DVD-A discs gives me the 96k display. Is Casino Royale different from my other DVD-A discs, and am I really getting 96k from my Denon 5700?
    Now,when I try to use the remaster feature with CDs, I only get silence using the digital input to my Denon 5700. I have seen other posts from people who report that it works for them with a digital connection. Why does this not work for me when, apparently, my 5700 can handle sampling frequencies above 88.2 kHz?

    I looked up Casino Royale. It is not a DVD-A. It is a DAD (Digital Audio Disk) by Classic Records. Before DVD-A came out, two companies, Chesky and Classic, started releasing DVD-V disks using 2 channel 96K/24 audio.
    BTW, your receiver has no way of knowing the sample rate of the DVD-A disks because the audio is output thru the 6 analog outs on the DVD player.

    As for your question about the re-sampling feature. The 5800 also cannot resolve the 88.2kHz sampling rate accurately. I can get it to work sometimes but the lock light never comes on so its pretty hit and miss.

    Yes and you can include the 4800 into that list of not being able to lock onto 88.2 kHZ.
    One thing that I have noticed, I like the DAC's sound of the Denon a little better than the RP91's. Seems to make the soundfield more spacious.
    Although very pleased with the RP91 for video, listening to classical music using the analog outs and Remaster set at 2, I haven't heard as much difference as some other members have been alluding to.

    Dan,
    I agree with you, I prefer the DAC's on the 5800 much more than the analog out of the RP91 with re-sampling. I much prefer to take the digital out of my CD player and use the Pure Direct mode in the 5800.
