Yamaha RX-V595 receiver which I plan to replace but would rather buy an HD DVD player first and the A2 looks like a great buy unless of course I will be forced to output the audio in stereo composite. Thanks.
If you're using the A2 over optical, you will only get DTS for advanced codecs (Dolby Digital Plus, TrueHD) that appear on HD-DVDs. For regular DVDs, the A2 will pass the "raw" signal (if you want it to) for DD and DTS tracks on those SD-DVDs.
Remember, Dolby Digital Plus and "old" Dolby Digital are not the same.
