    Has anyone tired connecting their old consoles, like SNES, Genesis, or even NES to thiere Pro-Logic 2 enable system?

    I am curious as to what kind of results you may have gotten.

    I connected a SNES and N64 to a DPLII receiver to see how they'd work. They both sounded great but I saw no dramatic improvement except for certain N64 games that featured DPL support (mostly Rare titles as I recall.) On those games, the audio really rocked -- right up there with some current GCN offerings.

    what about connecting a gameboy advance to your rciever. I know it doesnt have line out, but I could run a cable from the headphoine jack to an audo in on my reciever...

    i did that, sounded much better than the weak speaker in the gba, but i didnt get to do it in dpl2, my old receiver didnt have it, and i havent done it with my 45tx yet, but i doubt i would get any improvements with the dpl2. sounds better than headphones too.

    If I recall correctly, several games on the SNES were in Dolby Surround. The one game that stuck on my mind is Jurassic Park which had good surround.

    i just did a little digging, and it appears that some Gameboy advance games may output dolby surround:

    Pity there is no way to tell if a game supports it other than to try it out yourself.

    I have a N64 and orig. NES hooked to my system. I only have stereo right now until I can afford to upgrade to 5.1. They both sound good.
