Thinking of getting a blu ray player to replace my now ancient Pioneer DV-565 DVD player and hook it up my trusty Denon AVR 1604 reciever and wanted some advice on which way to go.

My old Pioneer has individual phono inputs at the back to connect me Dennon AV amp too and because I like the sound I get with this current set up I wanted to stick with this but am I continuing to flog a dying horse as nearly all manufatureres have ditched the individual for HDMI which my Denon doesn't have so just what is the best input for sound ?

My old kit is Denon avr - 1604 which I would like to keep sentimental value not tight if thats what your thinking,

let me know what do the audiophiles think for best sound output.

If by individual phono inputs, you mean multichannel analogue inputs, then with a BDP with multichannel analogue outputs/onbourd decoding you'll get HD audio. Using optical you'll only get DD/DTS.
