A while back, I printed instructions on how to add inputs to this receiver without them (it has optical and coax inputs). Since the receiver only had DD, not DTS; I was hoping to get one of the new Panny DVD players with the DTS decoder built in. I still have the instructions but have a couple of questions: 1. It seems like this mod bypasses the receiver's preamp; if so, how is the volume controlled. 2. It also seems like when you are feeding a signal through the new jacks added during the mod, that whatever source the receiver is switched to at the time would still be sending a signal to the power amp section. If anyone has done this mod; did it meet your expectations? Should I just sell this receiver and save for a new one? Or go separates? I love its sound.
