I hope this is not too stupid a question:blush: I have a STR-DB1080 Sony amp and 5 speakers, do I need a DVD player with a Dolby Digital decoder or does the Amp do this? I am looking at getting a Sony DVD player and I am confused:(

Hi Carle,

It might sound a silly question but to a novice who owns one, still a very important query.

Unfortunately I do not know. :confused:

However, cutting and pasting the name of your amp into google promptly yielded a selection of sites with relevant informtion.

Form one site, I cut n pasted the following:




Sony STR-DB1080
Dolby Digital EX & Dolby Pro-Logic 2 Decoders built-in
DTS, DTS-ES Discrete 6.1, Matrix 6.1, NEO: 6 DTS 96/24 Decoders
100W x 6 power output
True 6.1 channel amplifier
6.1 Channel input
SACD multi-channel input
Supports Multichannel SACD (frequency range up to 100kHz)
On screen display function
Pre programmed Remote Control Supplied
Available in black and silver
4 Optical inputs/1 coaxial input (Assignable)
Optical Output for minidisc
Built in RDS EON Tuner
UK sound tuned, from Sony UK


So, the answer to your question is yest, it does have a DD/DTS/Prologic II decoder.

So go and buy yourself a sensibly priced DVD, perhasp a budget enty Toshiba, they generally get good reviews.

Before I depart, in future, I suggest you do what I did, and save yourself the time in waiting for soem one to reply! :p


Hope this helped.

Adrian,

suppose better go back to work now :(
