There are a number of threads on this, so you should check the archives as well as any responses here. Basically, not all DVD players have a coaxial digital output which will output a 24 bit/96khz data stream. Most of the Pioneer units did, and my Marantz DV-18 does (but only after some on-screen programming of the unit), but some players do not. Check your owner's manual on this. In addition, if you play a CD, the only digital data that can be transmitted will be the 16 bit/44khz signal; you need a DAD with 24 bit/96khz data to have a chance at the higher rez data stream. Hope this helps somewhat.
