Extracting high-quality audio from Blu-ray players is problematic. The HDMI signal interleaves video and audio data which, upon decoding, produces an inherent jitter as high as 7nanoseconds (For comparison, a good CD player’s jitter is in the picosecond range). In practical terms, it is difficult to properly decode HDMI audio without employing extensive reclocking circuits, thus pushing up the cost of a good HDMI audio pre-processor.
well., when listening to my denon 1520 vs my samsung blueray
I can hear that the denon sounds better....not as harsh.
this is using rca cables. it kinda makes sense that the denon would sound better, it's only job is to reproduce music, not all the info of video also.
just my take on this...
