AC-3 Question

Hi, I've just bought a laserdisc player (CLD-D925) and it outputs DD5.1 in AC-3 format. Can I connect the RF Co-Ax output of the player to a Co-Ax RF input on my 3805 or do I need to use the RF Converter that came with the player?


Thanks

Are you SURE that the 3805 has an RF input?

If it does, then you don't need the RF converter. This is used to convert the Dolby Digital (RF) signal to "normal" Dolby Digital (i.e. the same as you get from a DVD) for amps that don't have an RF input.

Can't speak for the 3805, but new amps with DD RF inputs are pretty rare.

Maybe I'm wrong then:blush:

I thought that a co-ax input was RF?

Dont' think the 3805 has an RF coax. (Only Denon amp I can think that does is the 1SR. As Nigel says amps that have this feature are rare & tend to only be top end models like Yamaha DSP-Z9 , Onkyo 989 etc).

You'll need an RF Demodulator in the loop I'm afraid.

co-ax is NOT RF.......may look similiar, but different signal is used.

Think of it as a mains plug, but mains can provide different voltages.
