    I just bought a Sony DVPNS700 player with a built-in DTS decoder. Does that mean I can get DTS sound without having to buy an amp?

    How do I connect a set of 5.1 speakers to my player to get DTS?

    no, you'll still need an amp to amplify the signal to the speakers.
    with the decoder in the dvd player, it means u don't need an amp with a decoder.
    but most a/v amps now decode dolby digital and dts anyway, so this means the decoder in the dvd player is redundant, unless u have an older a/v amp that doesn't, but that does have 5.1 discrete input for an offboard decoder (i.e. using the one in the dvd).
