I just ripped some cd's into FLAC and played them flawlessly through the 3808. So it is possible. I do have the files on my Linksys NAS200 which sets up a media hub - pictures, video and music.

Did you play the flac files by selecting them from the denon GUI?

Were the flac files stored on your computer?

What exactly is a linksys NAS200?

Thanks!

Yes, the Denon Gui shows what I have on the HDD and then plays away \:\). Files are on the Network Storage hard drive which is what the Linksys NAS200 is. The NAS200 is a little slow to write to but does what I bought it for..backing up and media files for streaming.

so does the linkysys nas200 have software which shares the flac files with your denon or are you using some other media sharing software?

I am trying to find some software that will let me share flac files and am having a hard time.

The NAS200 apparently has a built in media hub/server that allows music, pictures and video to be shared across the/your network. As the Denon shows up as another piece of the network it is allowed access to the files on the HDDs and the rest is music bliss. When I am looking at the network/internet radio input on the Denon the NETWORKHUB shows up in the GUI and I just slide through to the album/artists I want and then they start to play.

I will try adding the files to the WMP on my PC and see if I can still access them from there. I am at work right now so it will have to wait till much later tonight.

I can see both flac and mp3's from the denon GUI when using windows media player (I had to install a patch to be able to add flac files to my WMP library). The denon will only let me play the mp3's though, I think that is due to the fact the WMP does not natively support flac Like I mentioned above.

I wonder if the software used by the NAS200 can be downloaded and used without the NAS200....

Hi, all. I have a denon 3808 question or three and would love some help if you have time. First, I have two speakers on my patio that I've been using for outdoor listening for years. With my old yamaha rx-v2600 I had those designated as "speaker b" and would simply push "speaker b" and release "speaker a" at the unit in order to play any of my sources (xm on directv, cd, etc.). Well, I now have a 7.1 channel system (just also got my M80s to replace M22i's for front channels - can I just say my rega turntable never revealed so much!!!!!! So very happy with this one part of my purchases!), so have M80s, QS8s, EP500 (also new - of course will pay for new toys in the coming years, but enjoy them everyday!) and now m22is for surround backs. I wired the outdoor speakers to "surround b" on the denon. So, how do I access surround b? I'm scared to mess with too much since I did have a fiasco of firmware updating and the directions are hard to understand. I just wish to activate that set to run when I'm outside. Any ideas? Now - question 2:

I love multichannel hi-rez. I have thoroughly enjoyed more than ever the Beatles Love DVD-A. But, I am not having success in listening to multichannel SACDs. I do have an oppo 981hd and I run both the hdmi cable and the analog rcas to the denon. My surround keeps showing up as stereo and I can't seem to resolve this. And, if I change the input assignment stuff, will I always have to come back and change it again for dvd-a's or regular dvds? Again, any and all help will be appreciated. Third question:

How have I lived without these M80s so long? I just think the sound is stunning, particularly on vinyl. Y'all have a great day and a wonderful new year! Thanks in advance for any help.
Laura

Are you passing the multi-channel on the HDMI? If so, then make sure your player is set to output at least 720p on the video side (it actually happened to me by accident yesterday and I wasted a good hour on this!). Hi-res multi-channel is passed alongside the video, so you need a higher setting to accomodate the signals.

If the audio is passed through analog, check the "down-mix" section of the Oppo; you will probably also need to setup an "alternate audio" source in the Denon (I don't have one, so I am not certain how they handle multiple audio sources for one video feed).

M80s are great, aren't they? \:\)

I don't have a Denon, but I imagine that you'll have to look for a multi-room button or menu entry to activate your Zone 2 (speaker B) speakers.

I have never actually tried it but here is how I think it should work based on my experience with the denon and remote so far. on the remote keep pressing the amp button (the one on the lit up part of the remote)a couple of times until zone 2 shows up. click the 'on' button located at the bottom of the lit up screen.

Pick the source you want.

Some where you may need to designate surround b as zone 2, but I am not sure exactly where that happens.
