Cambridge Dac magic plus & Denon DVD-2200

I have 2 DVD/CD/SACD players in my 2 channel system, one is a Denon DVD-2200 and a Pioneer Elite DV-59AVi.

I recently purchased a Cambridge Dac Magic plus DAC to see what all the DAC hype was and can not figure out why the DAC works fine with the Denon DVD-2200, but will not function with the Pioneer elite , same digital connections used, same RCA output cables, both players are set up the same via on screen settings for 2 channel playback.

The Cambridge shows the incoming sample rate, all filters work , headphones work , can use the Cambridge either as a pre amp or ran through my Adcom pre amp with the Denon DVD-2200 player.

But will not function with the Pioneer DV-59AVi player in any way, I am stumped.

Any suggestions or experience with the Cambridge DAC's would be greatly appreciated!!

Be certain the Pioneer's digital output is set to "On" in the setup menu (see page 63 in the user manual below).

Try both coaxial and optical connections.

Music room: Cary SLI-80 tube integrated amplifier, McIntosh MA6500 integrated amplifier, Quad 99 preamp, Quad 909 power amp, Acoustic Research AR9 loudspeakers, Yamaha CD-N500 CD player, Teac UD-503 DSD DAC, Phase Linear 8000II linear-tracking turntable.
Theater room: Panasonic 65S60 plasma television; Yamaha RX-A2020 (preamp section); Adcom GFA-5503 and GFA-5400 amplifiers; Polk LSi25, LSiC, and LSiF/X loudspeaker system; Velodyne FSR-18 servo-subwoofer.
