    This is possibly a silly question but then Friday afternoon seemed a good time for it, so here goes.

    Does anybody have any idea how much the processors used in a typical cinema actually cost?

    I'm not suggesting that I want a separate box for DD then another for DTS but I'm curious.

    Anyone know?

    Don't know about full on DD or DTS decoders, but the SA-10 aka Satan EX Matrix decoder was apparently a very reasonable $20,000 ;)
    That's not a definite price, but it came from a friend who worked in a cinema until recently.

    if you won the lottery and built a 50 foot cinema room, it would be a positive bargain! Along side the dual hgs18's per channel! :D

    what is the physical difference between this processor and our home usre ones?
