I just got my ICBM along with a pioneer dv-47a dvd/dvd-a/sacd player (both will connect with my integra 9.1 receiver). obviously i will use the 5.1 channel analog connects into the icbm for dvd-a and sacd for bass management (couldn't do a multichannel digital signal even if i wanted to!).
my question, however, is whether i should run dolby digital and dts through the 5-channel analog connects to the icbm for its bass management capabilities, or should i run them through a digital cable directly into the integra (and use its less capable bass management).
would i gain enough with the icbm's bass management to offset the possible introduction of noise going the analog route?
thanks for your thoughts.
