    When playing a DVD with a regular player, there are typically only
    Left and Right audio channels. I understand that these outputs can be
    fed from a DVD player to a surround-sound receiver that somehow
    demultiplexes the audio signals into the respective speakers (front
    right, front left, rear right, ...)

    There are also surround sound receivers/amplifiers with a built-in DVD

    Would the surround sound receivers/amplifiers with built-in DVD player
    more accurately re-create the sound into the 4+ speakers?

    Or is a regular DVD player with Left/Right channels feeding the
    surround sound receiver just as good?


  2. No. Even the cheapest $25 DVD players have a coaxial and/or optical surround
    sound output connection (for Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound).
    You have to use the surround sound output connection, not the left/right
    channel output.
    No, just use a normal DVD player and a normal surround sound receiver.
    No, not nearly as good.

    Great! Thanks for the info.
