so i have a question for all the techie's out there:
i just purchased a panasonic rp-91 dvd-a player a couple of weeks ago. i have not yet gone out to get the analog cables for all 6 channels so right now i jsut have it hook up to my reciever via an optical cable. my reciever is a denon 3802.
i just purchased my first dvd-a disc the other day...the grateful dead's "american beauty" which has a 2 channel and 6 channel track both at 24b/96k. however when i put the disc in i only hear 2 channels regardless of what track i listen to. i looked on a faq somewhere and it said for copyright purposes and bandwidth issues, that all the information cannot be passed digitally, which elplains the lack of the surround channels.
my question then is what am i listening to? am i getting 2 channels of 24b/96k or is it downsampling before it gets to the reciever? and what happened to the other 4 channels, are they cut somewhere along the way? is there anyway i can change things other than getting the analog cables?
