    i own a sony dvd player that has a 6 channel output, so i've always got my dd5.1 from a prologic amp with a 6channel discrete input. i've decided to pick up a cheap player to take to my new house with me, which wont contain the output i want... so wondering if its still possibly to pick these up (basically digital in, 6 ch phono out) and how much they cost?

    dd5.1 is wanted the most, but if its not much more for a dts box.. then might be tempted :D cheers

    I have a couple of processors..


    Harmon/Kardon ADP-303. Stereo & Dolby Digital. 1 optical, 1 coaxial, 1 RF for LD. 5.1 input (direct bypass), 5.1 to poweramps/5.1 input. Not remote controlled.

    Denon AVD-2000. Stereo, Pro-Logic, Dolby Digital. 2 optical, 2 coaxial, 1 RF for LD, 1 optical out. 5.1 input (not direct bypass) 5.1 to poweramps/5.1 input. Remote controlled.

    There are a few other cheap processors around- Onkyo & Pioneer made them, and Technics, Sony & Yamaha (Yamaha didn't have volume control, basically direct out)

    I had a Technics SCH-AC300 AC3 processor they did a AC3 & DTS one as well the SCH-AC500 I think. Was very happy with it, only cost £150 ish. Also if memory serves correctly Denon used to make one for about £250 that was well received.

    If only you needed this a month earlier, got rid of my old processor now and upgraded to an all in one. Doh!
