Sorry if this is a really dumb question.
I have a Samsung HD-950 connected to my Pioneer VSX 1011 AVR via 6 analogue connections for HR and a coax digital connection for LPCM, DD and DTS. Usually I select the MULTI IN to listen to my limited collection of HR discs in surround. Most of the DVD-A discs I have 96K for both the 5.1 and the 2CH version on the cover notes.
I have found that if I select the 2CH version of the audio, that I can also use the digital connection. It only passes the L R in this mode so I have to select 2CH or I miss the content of the other channels. When I listen to a 2CH CD, I also select the DIRECT mode. In listening to the difference between the analogue and digital in for the 2CH version, I found that digital seemed a little more crisp.
So here is my dumb question - why does the AVR display 88K if these discs are sampled at 96K?
I love my Constant Image Height system!
