Connecting a Mini Hifi to an AV receiver
Apols for the newbie question but here goes...
I have a Denon M38DAB which I use with a sky box and Samsung flatscreen TV. It's not a bad setup other than the options for audio from the TV and AV equipment to the mini system are limited.
There is an optical out on the TV, but no optical in on the Denon, so I connect the Sky box to TV with HDMI and run RCA cable to the Denon for audio playback. The DVD player connects to the TV with SCART (yes I know!) so the audio from that is cabled from the TV headphone socket to the Denon. I have very limited space but I'd like to get an AV receiver and upgrade the sound to 5.1 for film and dvd - but I don't want to lose the audio quality for CDs and DAB radio. Can the Denon connect to an AV receiver in such a way that I can switch just the Denon on to listen to CD and radio and the AV receiver for TV and video etc?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
