    I am planning on upgrading a Kenwood VR-507 (from a HTIB) to the Yammy 1400. I see that the receiver has 7 digital inputs (not including the front panel), 4 optical and 3 coaxial. The outputs are labeled (i.e. CD, DVD, etc.), and overlap between optical and coaxial, however I read that they are assignable. Does this mean that I will be able to connect 7 independent sources digitally?

    Also, will the receier's ability to upconvert composite and S-Video sources to a component output produce a visible difference in picture; it will be hooked up to a Toshiba 50H81.

    Yes, you can rename the digital inputs and actually have more sources connected to the receiver.

    I don't notice any differences with the upconversion.

    Vic,

    Do you know if I can assign the digital inputs to 7 different sources? I need to connect the follwing:

    - 3 DirecTivos
    - 1 HDTV DirecTV receiver
    - 1 Panasonic DVD-RP56 DVD Player
    - 1 Kenwood CD Changer
    - 1 X-Box
