    Being new to this home cinema set up, I am looking for a few pointers if anyone can help.

    Four years ago I purchased a Kenwood SE-A750S hi-fi system.
    I am now looking to add a DVD player .

    Although the receiver (C-V350) is dolby pro logic, and has 6 channel input, how easy is it to add a DVD player and have Dolby Digital 5.1 sound.

    Are there any decent DVD players available with 5.1 decoder built in and 6 channel outputs. All the players I have seen so far only seem to have 2 channel outputs.

    Or, would it be better in the long term to bin my existing set up and buy a new receiver and amp altogether?

    Thanks in advance for all replies,
    Jonah.

    IMHO there are lot's of players with 6 channel output around, some have even DD and DTS decoding.
    Check out some dealers which carry several brands and it should be no problem to find a player which suits your needs in term of looks, features and - most important - performance.

    Perhaps a good idea and surely you will yield some improvement. And don't worry then if the player has a decoder or not, as long as it has a digital output (and all do have that) you will be fine; just ignore the decoder then (saves you some cabling, too).
