Listening to DVDs via Rega-DAC + Marantz DV7600

Hello,
My name is Ramin and I am new in this farum. This is my first post.

I have problem with my digital source, i.e. Marantz DV7600 with Rega-DAC. I cannot get sound from my DVDs, even when I set the audio (in the DVD set-up) to stereo. The DAC is supposed to work with DVD's set in stereo sound.

What should I do?

Have you set the Marantz to

Have you set the Marantz to output PCM, not bitstream?  See page 39 of your manual.  The Marantz may be outputting DD which most DACs cannot handle.

Thanks.

Thank you very much. That worked! smiley

One more question: in the Audio Setup, there are two options for "PCM Down Sample"; On or Off. I selected "Off." Is it better for sound quality?

What does this "PCM Down Sample" do? (I couldn't find anything about it in the manual.)

Thanks,
Ramin
