    I have a Pioneer reciever which as the following audio connnect options...

    1 Digital Coaxial
    1 Digital Optical
    5.1 Analog (Where each speaker in a 5.1 system has it's own RCA interconnector from DVD to Reciever)

    Currently the Optical is hooked up to my HDTV cable box which is great. But I am confused what to hook my DVD player to. According to the manual the 5.1 Analog is best for SACD and DVD-A lisening, but for watching DVD's in general what is best? The problem is that I am limited in the audio options (setting that change bass and treble) when lisening through the 5.1 analog setup. When using the Digital Coaxial I have alot more options. What is the best setup?

    If you are not interested in DVD movies the 5.1 analog setup is fine by itself. For films though the digital connection is preferable. Optical or coaxial will work equally well.
