Question about NAD T743 Receiver
I'm considering purchase of a Blu-ray player and it appears Panasonic DMP-BD35 or 55 offer great value - and have Dolby True HD & DTS HD which is essential IMHO. My only question is which would be best compatible with my NAD T743. The BD35 only has digital optical out, while the 55 offers analog 7.1 audio out as well as optical & coax audio. Looking at my NAD manual it appears it has optical digital in. Will this allow me to connect audio from 35 (or 55) while inputting the video via component. Of course, maybe I don't need to pass the video through the NAD at all.
Any thoughts on how to best hook up? Anyone have experience with this setup?
The reciever you have has 5.1 inputs at the backof it.The only way to get Dolby True HD and DTS HD is to run the 7.1 analog out from the bd55 to the nad. You'll have to leave the 2 rear surround open on the bd55 leaving the remaining 6 connected to the nad. The digital coax and the optical will not transmit the hd data, only the analog out will. Run a hdmi right to your HD tv for picture bypassing your amp. this will workfine and you'll have the audio you want. You,ll have to change the input settings for dvd in your amp to 5.1 to recieve the audio.
