    Would I be able to benefit from buying a dvd player with Dolby Digital / Dolby DTS decoding if I have an older receiver/amp that only has Dolby Pro Logic, or would I be just as well getting a non-decoding player?

    I'm currently set up with a mid 90s JVC amp/receiver, a pair of DCM TimeFrames and an Infinity center channel speaker for home theater duties.

    thanks for any advice

    Your receiver would have to have the 5.1 channel inputs that are required to decode the 5.1 signal to make the decoding work.

    If your receiver doesn't offer this, then don't waste the extra money. Save up and get a DD5.1 receiver and a "standard" DVD player that doesn't have a decoder inside.

    wow... that was quick, thanks. I do plan on upgrading my receiver in the near future, so I'll pick up a good quality non-decoding dvd player in the meantime... thanks again.
