    ins. Is there a cable I can get? Please help.

  2. And I hope this puts to rest all the tiresome arguments
    about patch cables having no effect.

    No...You need a decoder(or decoding software) to convert from a Dolby
    Digital stream to 6 channels of audio. You could also go through a
    decoder and record 6 channels from the decoder(like an A/V receiver with
    6 outputs). I think Dolby E lets you manipulate the encoded Dolby
    Digital stream without decoding it. Other than that I think you need to
    decode it to do anything with it.

    No, you need a Dolby Digital decoder.

    Actually, DOES anybody make a simple box with a Dolby bitstream in, and
    S-PDIF out to external converters, or clean analogue discrete outputs?
    I'd like something a good bit cheaper than the Dolby unit, but I'd like
    something more solidly built and without all that additional processing
    crap that the consumer receivers have.

  6. There used to be a number of consumer decoders but these have gotten
    rare as consumers move to a/v receivers that encorporate the decoder
    functions. I have a Technics SH-A500D decoder that does DD, DTS and
    DPL quite simply. Oh, analog out.

    Ah, the old "why does less cost more?" question. You know the answer
    to that one. The cheapest way gets you more bells and whistles because
    that's what the manufacturers want the consumers to buy (and they do).

    You want solid and straightforward, you buy the pro model for the pro
    price. I haven't looked at the routing possibilities of that TASCAM
    surround monitor router gadget, but I know it has digital I/O. What I
    don't know is if it goes in the right direction for your application.

    Check out the Yamaha RX-V630. It has all the line ins and out you need.
    You can also defeat any processing. I have one and it works very well.

  10. One could say the same (and more) about my Meridian Ref861 but price
    was an issue.
