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.
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).
