That's not going to work, as you'll have to control volume via both the TV's volume control and the powered speakers' volume control. You can either get a proper sound system, or if you don't want to buy anything and to just use the TV's speakers for output, then just hook up the front right and front left audio output from the DVD player to your TV, and set the DVD player's output to "STEREO" only, or to disable all the surround speakers inside the player's menu.[addsig]
http://www.jr.com/JRProductPage.process?Product=3986714 SCD-CE595 It's already available in Europe, I believe, and the pre-order price from J&R is very attractive at ~$150. Finally a successor to the CE775 that was discountinued way too early.[addsig]
David Gilmore "In Concert". Listen to the stereo 24-bit/48kHz PCM tracks, and use Pro Logic II or Neo:6 if you have a surround system. Much better than the DD5.1 track. Roger Waters "In the Flesh". Same idea, except the stereo PCM on this disc is 20/48.[addsig]
I don't have any answer for you. It makes absolutely no sense how a connection at the back of a CD player would determine if the player can read a disc or not. You may want to call/email Rotel and see if they know anything about that.[addsig]
A player would not care if a disc is a CD or CD-R. Either it can read it, or it cannot. However, what matters is the format the music is burned in. Is it unaltered .wav files in 16/44.1 PCM? If not, your receiver may not be able to decode that digital signal.[addsig]
gordm - I have the NS900V (which I'm lending it to my parents). Build - Excellent. Aluminum front plate, gold-plated connectors, etc... it's equivalent to the the NS999ES that cost close to $1K. Remote - Again, slim design with LCD. Again, same one used in the 999ES. The 930 and others don't have that. Picture quality - I think it's interlace video is superb. However, the progressive scan output isn't as good as my cheaper Panasonic CP72. Another problem with most (if not all) Sony progressive scan DVD is that they don't pass "blacker than black". To use the PS ..
If you have a pair of audio outputs from the TV, one red one white, then it's just a stereo signal output. Same as from your VCR. You can use either. The one from the VCR should give you slightly better sound, as the TV's audio output can be more easily distorted with volume control and high-voltage circuits inside the TV.[addsig]
Problem is with your cable provider. It's up to them whether a channel is stereo or not. Let them know you're not happy that many of the channels are MONO, and you should consider switching to satellite or another cable provider if that's available.[addsig]
It sounds like this SB300 system does not satisfy your need in terms of both sonic and physical performance. I suggest you return it and try out different models and brands, and get something that's a better performer.[addsig]
What exactly happened with you put it in Pro Logic II? What do you mean by "does not work"? Keep in mind that PL, PLII, etc works with a stereo signal. The sound will collapse to the center if the signal is mono, whether because you're not connecting it correctly, or if that broadcast is only mono.[addsig]
The THD ratings are ABRiTRARY level used for power-rating purpose. It has nothing to do with noise of the amplifiers. A high THD number for power rating purpose means that if you rate the amp at the lower THD, you'll get a lower power rating. In short, a higher THD "inflates" the power number they can advertise.[addsig]
Like everybody has said, it has nothing to do with the TV, but the satellitle box. If you're not getting a stereo signal from it, then it's either that channel is not stereo, or the box is not setup to output that. Again, the TV doesn't care what type of audio signal is sent to it via the analog audio R/L inputs.[addsig]
Yes, that does sound like a design flaw or bug in the 725's detection of 30 fps material. I don't have any good answers but two things you may try: 1. Bring the discs to a shop and try it on another 725; or exchange for another. This will determine if it's just YOUR player or all 725. 2. Switch the transfer mode to "Video" from "AUTO" in the setup menu, if it has that. I know that this should only make a difference if one's using a progressive scan output, but it doesn't hurt to try.[addsig]
About the connections, there are basically two main ways to do it. 1. Hook everything - i.e. audio AND video - through the receiver. 2. Hook all audio straight to receiver; and all video straight to TV. Advantage of 1 is that you switch everything through the receiver, and you MAY be able to take advantage the receiver's on-screen display if that's available, or if that's important to you. Advantage of 2 is that you have the least chance of video degradation. You should decide on one of two, but not mixed. In your last post, there's really no reason t ..
I don't think at this price and performance range, you need to worry too much about cables and connectors. Don't use the really thin stuff that comes with the components, but some inexpensive cables/connectors from Radio Shack's Gold Series or equivalent is probably good enough. The subwoofer needs to be powered - i.e. has its own amp, and has a AC cord. Don't buy a system with a "passive" subwoofer. That's not true for the main speakers. Those can be powered by the receiver, unless you want to get into higher-end speakers, like the powered towers from Definitive Technologies.[add ..
The important feature of the Pioneer is its capability to play both SACD and DVD-As. It's been replaced by the 578AS, with similar features. The 725 is a nice player, but it really doesn't have many features that make it worth its price. The newer 575 is probably a better value. But if you have to choose between the two, I'll take the Pioneer, especially if you have any interest in multi-channel music.[addsig]
Dutch123 - There's really no reason why you have to buy a HT from Sony. They are pretty much seperated from the function of the TV, and many HT remotes have some "universal" capability to control the TV, cable/satellite box. There are two schools of thought about the height of the surround speakers. Some prefer ear level, but some like it higher. You probably just have to experiment. Also, many HT sound systems are now 6.1 or 7.1 with one or two rear center speakers. But if you don't want to get any more wires through, 5.1 is okay for most. There are two main ways to get ..
1. Yes, the HS510 is a HD monitor, so it will support progressive scan (480i) DVD. 2. A home theater is definitely not overkill. In fact, it's almost a must, regardless of room size. TV speakers simply can't do justice to the DVD or HD watching experience. 3. It's impossible to define "good". You can easily spend several thousand dollars, if not more, on a good sound system.
