I have the same receiver but an LG TV. I did buy a dac not the one through parts express but still have trouble getting any sound out. I also turned on the optical output without any success. I'm pretty good with audio but this I'm stumped. Any sugestions
@americanaudiophile thanks for the advice. I should have bought the one you referenced from the beginning. That's the one I was going to go with originally. I guess that's what I get for trying to be cheap. Anyway, I returned the one that didn't work and bought the one from parts express. Got it in the mail sometime Sat, hooked it up that night and it works like a charm. Thanks.
