    I have purchsed an Onkyo-797 Receiver, and along with a DVD player I have a Pioneer CLD-604 Laser Disc Player. I want to connect the AC3 out to my receiver, but was told I need a demodulator. Supposedly, only specific receivers don't need that. I was told to search on the web to find one.

    Any ideas where I can find a demodulator and about how much it will cost?

    Thanks alot. JoeRas

    Most cos. have stopped making them. The used market such as the "Hardware for Sale" section here or Ebay (do a search under 'Home Audio/Video of RF Demodulator but be careful not to confuse it with a modulator) as well as similar sites are good sources. The cost for a used one may vary with the model. I would guess that most will go for the $150-200 price range and model like the Lexicon for roughly double that. When I get around to inventory stuff laying around that I am not using in about two weeks, I will likely have an extra one to sell if you can't find one.
