DVD - A is pure audio without any encoding in surround formats (i.e. DTS or Dolby D).


If you have Dolby Digital appearing, then it seems you have your DVD-A

connected via a coax/Toslink cable. You are not hearing DVD-A you are hearing DVD video via the video sound encoding.


DVD-A and SACD are analog ouput only unless you have a Denon Link or IEEE-1394 connection. The Pioneer 912 supports neither.


What DVD Audio player do you have hooked up to the receiver and how is it connected?

dude, that sucks, so am i listing to at least a better quality sound than normal cd's,

u are not going to believe this but i am just using my xbox :confused: with toslink cable

so what setting should i listen to on the receiver using a compatible dvd player if i had one,.

i think my reciever would be compatible to decode those signal, its got it on the cover that its decode 94/24dts, isn't this the signal for dvd-a

thanks for yor help and imput,

just trying to get this right, :rolleyes:

If your DVD player AND receiver have an i-link and or some native digital connectivity for DVD-A (like Denon-Link on Denon), you can use them to digitally pass DVD-A signal.


The other (and most likely) solution is to use analog connections, a DVD-A compatible player has 6 analog output, your receiver must then also have 6 analog input specific for that purpose.


If you use Toslink or S/PDIF you will only get the DD track and not the high-rez one.


Conclusion, to really get high-rez out of DVD-A you need a DVD-A player and your receiver must also have appropriate connectivity.

In other words, your Xbox isn't going to give you what you want. Xbox only has ditital or regular stereo out and has no support of DVD-A that I have ever heard of. The good thing is that MANY low to mid level DVD players have the capability of playing DVD-A in its true format.
