How to hook up BD Player using 7.1ch Audio Out

Hi again guys,

just wanted to ask this 'rather stupid question': What do you use to hook up a 7.1 ch BD player from the player's audio out to the AV receiver's 7.1 ch Audio in? Normal phono leads?

Any suggestions as what route to go please? Prospective player is the Denon DBP-2012UD to a Marantz SR8500.

Thank you guys.

As stated, use RCA cables from the 7.1 output of the BDP to the AVR's 7.1 input. Since your AVR does not have HDMI, this is the only way that you will be able to get lossless (DTS-MA and DD-TruHD) audio. :)

The link to the RCA cables in eljay's post is a good recommendation; you will need 4 pair (8 total for L, R, C, LS, RS, LR, RR, and LFE) for a 7.1 connection.
