    i am awaiting delivery of a laserdisc player (Pioneer 1750 )
    and it has an optical Digital out, silly question, but will this allow me to get DD from ntsc discs! as i know you need an rf demodulator for digital sound fron the rf output.

    Not without an RF demodulator, it won't.

    beecee,

    Sorry to disappoint you, but the 1750 doesn't have an RF output, so even if you had an RF demodulator, you still wouldn't be able to hear AC-3. Stick to good ol' DTS! :smashin:

    That's correct, DTS is available from the optical out, as long as the amp had a DTS decoder. You will also get dolby Surround via stereo from the optical out. You cannot get DD from a LD player unless it has a coaxial RF output and even then you will need a demodulator (in the amp of standalone).

    You can easliy modify a 1750 to give you an AC3 RF output - so a wee bit searching around....

    Its a simple DIY circuit to build and fit...
