does anyone know a good Reciever that has DPL2 and has 2 coxial inputs and a coxial output?
How much are you looking to spend (this will help with targeted responses)?
well i would prefer between 150 - 250, but will go to 300.
I have not seen any recievers that take more then one coaxial sources then simply pass it out via coaxial for a reasonable sub 500 price.
I am tring to connect my HCPC and my DVD to the same DD5.1 input on my philips 9616, aswell as having DPL2 for future proofness
Try looking at the latest Marantz models - the SR4300 or 5300. Both these models have 2 coaxial digital inputs and one output. The 4300 can be found for £280, maybe cheaper if you search around a bit.
lol think I seen that for 200 quid somewhere
I think that the old spec SR4200 are being sold off for £200, but not sure about the spec.
yep it lacks a DD6.1 ex channel
is it really worth getting the 4300 over the 4200 for DD&DTS6.1 over 5.1
if you intend to go 6.1 I'd consider it pretty vital
is 6.1 in your opinion that much better then 5.1?
Couldn't say as I don't have the rears in place yet. DD-ex and DTS-es material is pretty thin on the ground on both sides of the pond at the moment. Although with 6.1 studio mixers can produce rear pans as effectively as front pans.
Effectively placing your rear centre for 6.1 can also be a problem in some rooms (ie if your listening position is up against the rear wall then the rear centre will be directly above your head and not sounding at its best).
just ordered the the sr4300 from qed!
damn you all
