i was told by a friend that he had heard that i could bypass the internal dac's in a dvd player and use the dac's in a receiver to play music. im going to be running a harman kardon avr 525...can anyone tell me if this is true and any benefit of doing something like this. and if it is true..how do i go about doing this? using coaxial/optical inputs to the receiver for movies and an analog set of rca's to the cd input of the receiver???? i dont have the money to buy a dedicated high quality cd player.. one last question....what is the difference between coax input and optical...benefits and disadvantages? thanks for any feedback im a total newby to HT ive been a car stereo nut for years...i think i might have outgrown it though....is that blasphemy??
