    Making it a requirement on the players to have a 5.1
    analog input on a receiver/prepro is perhaps the most
    stupid thing the audio companies have done in the last
    24 years (VHS being another one). All these people buying
    receivers and prepros, manufacturers having to make provisions for 5.1 analog outputs on their products, all in
    a forlorn attempt to keep digital streams of 5.1 out of
    the manipulative hands of those awful "consumers."
    Screw the entertainment companies, if I wanted to use
    the crummy dacs in those units, then I'd just stick with
    regular CD anyway.
    When the entertainment morons finally reneg and offer
    single-cable digital outputs, all those current 5.1
    analog inputs on receivers and prepros will be as useful
    as the telephone jack in your DIVX player. [​IMG]
