What is it? I have it...but what do I use it for...why is it differ?
You could use it for DVD Audio or a DVD player that has a built in decoder....
this is correct sir
6 ch is set up for a nice dvd player that has all your outputs front center surround and sub is this a technics reciever???? plug them into the reciever for your sound
Most higher end receivers have 6 channel inputs, even if they already do have Dolby Digital and DTS decoders in them. This is for DVD-Audio and multi channel SACD. Its because no digital output has been set for the formats, so the decoding is done in the player and then sent to the receiver as an analog signal instead of digital bitstream.
Hmmm, so which would be better a coax out or the 6 ch?
I would say that a Digital Connection would be better. This is because the decoder in the Receiver is better than the decoder in the DVD Player.
I'm a bit confused!
Your first post said 5.1 (6 channel) receiver input, your last post says coax (digital?) or 5.1 (6 channel) output.
Which one are we talking about?
As before the receiver's 6ch input is connected to the 6ch output from a DVD-A player, SACD player, or even an ICBM (bass management unit) sitting between the receiver and DVD-A or SACD player.
The receiver's 6Ch output can be connected to an external 5 channel amp (bypassing the receiver's own amplifiers) and a powered sub. This is useful when speakers need more powerful amps then those provided in the receiver.
