I just got a Denon 3800 and the Denon 4308 A/V Reciever...
Im not sure exactly how I should hood this up to my 5.1 setup...I want to play movies with surround, but also want to play stereo music...
I also want the "best" surround choice, and the "best" possible sound for stereo? Now here is the part that confuses me since this is the 1st time ive ever owned something this high end or even a reciever... Its said that the denon 3800 DACs are better than the 4308...So im not sure how to do this... Also, I dont know if I need to use the analoge ( RCA jacks) inorder to take advantage of the burr brown DACs....And then just use the HDMI directly to my HDTV???
Also, the 4308 reciever says it has analogue to digital burr brown DACS, dont know what this means??? Catch what im trying to say, i just dont know the best possible way I can hook this up, so I can just sit on my couch pop in a movie, watch with great surround, and then pop a cd in , and get the best possible sound from stereo (without having to reconnect stuff) just swtiching settings
firstly, I always thought digital (toslink) gave one a better audio performance, so Ive read...but then im told the burr brown dacs wont kick in unless its through anagloge (with teh 3800)
I know this is hard to understand, as you can see, I can barely describe my troubles...ill try to re read and re read this post to try and clarify...But I hope someone can chime in and give me step by step on what I should do? Im so confused...thanks
