    Anyone familiar with this unit? It has a digital out as well as the analog outs. My qestion is can I use it as a stand alone AC-3 RF demodulator using the digital ins and out for laserdisc playback?

    Yes this DD processor can be used to decode RF AC-3.

    Yep, I own this little pre/pro and it does a wonderful job as an RF demod. Plus, it works really well as an optical switcher (1 AC-3 RF in, 3 optical in, 1 coax in, 1 optical out). To be honest, it pretty much sucks as a processor, but you don't use that part of the sucker if you're just using it as a demod/switcher.
