    i have just bought a new dvd player, and i play the sound through the TV but i want to have the full 5.1 speakers. i dont know if the dvd player supports 5.1 but it says DTS on the front and i think its more or less the same thing. but what i want to know is what do i need for 5.1 sounds, other than the speakers, do i need a special amp?? or will they go through my dvd player? the dvd player doesnt have seperat connectors for each speaker i know that much atleast lol

    thank you for your time.

    As well as speakers, you will need an AV amp which will decode the DD5.1/DTS signal from the player.

    Normally, you would just have a single digital connection between DVD player & amp.

    Your player definitely will support DD5.1/DTS.

    Hi m8,

    Try and be a bit more specific as to what you want or what budget you have.

    You will get plenty of assistance from the good peeps here if you give them something to go on.

    Cheers
    Bry
