DPL receiver & DVD player


Unregistered guest
If I hook up a DVD player to a DPL receiver with your plain RCA cables will I still get DPL surround sound.

Plus would I have to set the DVD player to PCM.

Do you have a surround sound set up? If you do, then you will want to get an optical cable so that you can use dolby digital and/or dts which will give you better overall reproduction.

It's an old pro logic receiver with no digital hook up. All I need is old pro logic surround sound. Will it work with a DVD player hooked up with RCA cables.

All I have is three speakers for the front. Cambridge soundworks model six and boston acoustic model CR1 center.

thank you

Be sure the audio track you select on the DVD is 2 ch stereo (with DPL analog encoding) and those signals will be passed with the L/R audio channels to the inputs on the DPL receiver.

The PCM/Raw setting does not apply on the DVD player, because the signal you are sending as mentioned is analog, interspersed inside the 2 channels of analog audio you are sending down the RCA interconnects.

Lastly, set the DPL receiver to DPL mode obviously.

You really should consider moving to a digital receiver though; the difference in sound imaging and freq response is vastly different when comparing the old DPL to even DPLII or DD/DTS.
