    Ive just received my Pioneer 575 which I love to bits, great machine. I have a pioneer AV receiver that doesn't support DTS. However, when skipping through the setup menus I noticed it can encode DTS to PCM from the player and then output to the AV. I tried this and it worked, but is it the same quality as the original DTS track?

    Thanks

    probably just 2 channel pcm.

    you could then run it through pl2 or neo6 and see what the surround is like if the thing is matrixing it when downmixing.

    Doesn't the 575 have DTS encoding built in? I am sure it has, and if that is the case, then why not take the analogue 6 channel-out and feed it your 6 channel-in on your amp (assuming that it has that feature) and you'll get the DTS experience. As far as PCM is concerned, it will only be stereo.

    Cheers,

    Martin.
