    Hello,

    I have a JVC XV-SA70 DVD player with a built in 5.1 decoder. I'm using a Denon AVR2500 receiver but it only supports dolby 2.0. So the question is do I just get an Amp for my DVD player and let the DVD player do the decoding or do I get a new 5.1 or 6.1 receiver.

    I'm leaning towards the new receiver...thinking the Pioneer VSX-D812 or D912. From the amps I have seen there is no money saving, although there is maybe a quality boost.

    This is mostly for movies as I will use my Denon for music.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Richard

    Yeah definitely go for the newer receiver. You'll benefit from new processing modes not just for the dvd player but for other sources as well.

    I thought for sure the Denon 2500 had 6 analog input (5.1).....


    This would work fine if so, hook the 6 analog connection up to it.

    You can't run the analog outs directly to an amp. You still need a pre/pro to handle volume, so you will need to look at receivers.

    Hey John,

    The Denon 2500 has just Left and Right audio inputs.
