Have hooked up my new denon 2900 to my denon 3803 receiver through only the digital connection at the moment.
There is a digital signal which is being processed by the receiver when i play a DVD-A disc, however i am not sure if this is the full DVD-A signal or just a normal DVD-V audio track.
Do you have to use analogue cable for DVD-A to get the full resolution output (I know that you do for SACD)

The answer in short: yes!

The hi-res formats will only work through the analogue connections. However, on DVD-A discs there is video and/or audio content (mlp for DVD-A) that can output through the digital connection like DD or DTS.

Sorry - (mlp for DVD-A) was meant to be (not the mlp for DVD-A)!

Hope that helps.

Bob: as MR state, DVD-A is bullet proof - no hi-rez thru' S/PDIF.

But there is a trick. Occasionally a DVD-A disc might carry a stereo 96/24 LPCM DVD-V track. I managed to decrypt one of those, and got 2-ch hi-rez through digital cable.
