Connecting to Digital Jacks
The DSP-AX1 has digital jacks for direct transmission of digital signals through either coaxial or fiber optic cables. You can use the digital
jacks to input PCM, DTS and Dolby Digital bitstreams. When you connect components to both the COAXIAL and OPTICAL jacks (for CD,
DVD, and CBL/SAT) priority is given to the input signals from the COAXIAL jack. All digital input jacks are acceptable for 96 kHz/24 bit
About the Video Jacks
There are three types of video jacks. Video signals input through the VIDEO jacks are the conventional composite video signals. Video
signals input through the S VIDEO jacks are separated into luminance (Y) and color (C) video signals. The S-video signals achieve high
quality color reproduction.
Video signals input through the COMPONENT VIDEO jacks are separated into luminance (Y) and color difference (P
signals. The jacks are also separated into three for each signal. The description of the component video jacks may be different depending on
the component (e.g. Y, C
