    Nick,

    “I have been informed by ONKYO that they are just about to release the first Pro-Logic II recievers onto the market in June this year? They will let you listen to 5.1 surround from any 2 channel source including SKY and normal terrestial TV as well as audio CD's.”

    No, there will be (and are) Pro Logic II receivers before the Onkyo. Dolby’s list of announced products follows. Also, please remember that Pro Logic II is not a “5.1” system, it is a matrix decode process, just like Pro Logic, it simply derives five channels from the source material instead of four. Only discrete digital formats such as Dolby Digital, DTS and MPEG-Audio can carry “5.1” discrete channels. The correct way of describing Pro Logic II in numerical terms is: 4:2:5 (the 4:2 being Dolby Surround encoding and 2:5 being Pro Logic II decoding).

    I have been informed by ONKYO that they are just about to release the first Pro-Logic II recievers onto the market in June this year? They will let you listen to 5.1 surround from any 2 channel source including SKY and normal terrestial TV as well as audio CD's. I am waiting to receive my unit as soon as they are released as I believe ONKYO are at the cutting edge of this new technology. The guy I spoke to at ONKYO says they have 3 new units and they really have to be heard to be believed?
