Thank you for taking my question. I've connected my DVD-3910 to my NAD T-163 pre-amp using the 6 analog outputs to the 6 analog inputjacks. When I play a SACD disc , no output. The player seems to be playing but no sound. It plays DVDs & CDs . Also I'm unable to get the test tone to work. The player is set to factory default and I select the 7.1 front panel key on the NAD.
I had a similar problem, only stereo output, no surround or centre channel output. I went to the Denon service centre and the man just pressed 3 or 4 buttons on the front channel while switiching it on and the SACD channels were reset. I am now having the same problem again but do not know which buttons to press. Does anyone know? It will save me a trip to service centre. Thanks.

Any DVD player will work with your receiver, as long as you are not using SACD output jacks. Not all units use this output, so if you are using these connections, make sure you buy another unit that also possesses these connections. HDMI connections are also something to consider.

Make sure your playing componet like CD player have a digital output socket. Connect this to a digital port on the amp witk a single RCA or Optical cable if output available on CD. Make sure the digital assingment in amp is set for cd function and corresponding input(example cd plyer connected on dig 4 input on amp, press menu, setup, assignment, go to cd player, make sure setting on dig 4 or change input to dig 4, go to next component to memorise setting.and exit, see manual to assist you) if still no sound take dvd cable for instance that is working and put that in dig 4 port. if that works check in cd player that settings spdif/raw/pcm is correct one for yor digital output if still no sound soun pc board faulty.
Downloaded the user manual for the Marantz SR 6003 A/V Receiver. In this it stated that if a SACD player was connected to the SR 6003 with an HDMI interface earlier than 1.2 then the digital data from the SACD could not be transferred over the HDMI cable to the SR 6003. This implies, but does not confirm, that if a SACD player does provide a digital output on an HDMI 1.3 interface, then SACD audio data can be transmitted to the SR 6003 and, presumably, decoded and converted to 6 analogue streams which are then amplified and deleivered to the (6) analogue output terminals.
I'm fairly sure that the native DSD data from the SACD has to be converted to PCM before transmission over the HDMI interface which is better than nothing. What I was hoping for though was for the data to be transferred in DSD and converted in the SR 6003 directly to analogue, avoiding two intermediate conversions. This ideal solution can be done by only a few SACD/ A/V Receiver combinations, which is silly considering that it is also the simplest. One example, which has made a big impression amongst high fi enthusiasts, is the OPPO DV-980H Universal DVD player (plays any audio or video disc and costs almost nothing) and the Integra DTC 9.8 home theatre processor.
If your 2100ES has a selectable INPUT AND OUTPUT and if you're intending to send all signal to the power amp, i.e. not bi-wiring or using the 2100ES to run mid-range or treble then you simply send Left & Right audio (White & Red cable) from a 2100ES output, probably AUX OUT ( it doesn't really matter apart from Phono on some units) straight to the power amp on AUX IN.
We should be just dealing with audio here, so connect the NAD audio output to CD or DVD IN. Select CD or DVD IN on 2100ES input switch and switch output to AUX OUT (whatever you decided goes to the power amp) on the 2100ES. Turn power amp to AUX IN and it will now get an audio signal from the 2100ES for amplification.
Speakers connect to the power amp as a normal amp, so pos and neg etc. The 2100ES now only acts as a signal feed, the power amp does all the work.
So, summary - switch on the NAD, press play - video goes separately and audio goes to the 2100ES. Turn 2100ES to INPUT for NAD. Turn 2100ES to OUTPUT allocated for power amp. Turn INPUT on power amp to allocation for 2100ES.
The output of the preamp connects to the input of the power-amp, left and right channels respectively. Some preamps (like NAD) can have more than one set of outputs, is this what you are dealing with? If you can give me the make and models of the gear then I can help you more... :)
