My Sony DA-777ES has an analog direct mode that I use with the SACD output of my Sony S9000ES. Not sure how "true" the analog direct mode is, but the receiver does have Pre-outs that I connect to a separate 5-channel amp. Personally I recommend you upgrade to a pre-amp processor (something without noisy video switching) to get the full benefit of DVD-A or SACD. Not sure what your budget is though.
