Simple Analog Audio Hookup Question:
If i have a stereo XLR pair out do i need to also hook up 7.1 RCAs
for 7.1 or just do 5.1 RCA and let the XLRs handle L/R channels?
I figured it out, if i link my DHC-80.3 and instruct it to take the accept
balanced the A1 will feed it DOWNMIXED 2 channel via XLRs, or native
if on the 2 channel layer of SACDs.
If i feed it multichannel analog it will come out 5.1 but only via the RCAs,
If i decode DTSHD in the player i CANNOT GET RID OF DOWNMIX, even
when outputting analog 5.1 (from DTSHD5.1) it shows downmix, this is
a minor hindrance as i use it almost entirely for SACD.
Goodbye Oppo BD-980H, trusty old friend. The advantages of DSD are
shattered by the A1's decoding, much wider soundstage, with such detail and clarity
that i want to relisten to my entire 580 SACD collection again
I also find myself wanting to listen more to the 2 channel layer, the XLR stereo shines.
In fact the slot on my DHC-80.3 freed by the departure of the Oppo will be assigned
to balanced stereo layer duty. Just at the pic below, the entire right 1/3 is occupied with
Now i need to clone myself so i can cathc some sleep.

Why? it shoudn"t be doing that.
Mine got a dhcp from day one.
Got it, had to manually make it look for network, that is way too old fashioned, got the latest firmware,
