    Hi!

    I have a Dolby Pro Logic receiver and I am thinking about upgrading to a digital receiver that has Dolby Digital/DTS and so on. However, my current setup allows for only 2 channel listening right now for music and mainly for movies. I anticipate that my setup will remain a 2 channel one too for a while...

    Will there be any benefits then in upgrading to digital in my case?

    Is there a difference then between a 2 channel analog hookup and a digital one where only the 2 front channels are selected? I know the digital bitstream offers some things an analog can't such as dynamic range control flags and so but what about sonically and the quality in downmixes?

    Thanks

    Andy

    Wait until you expand to at least 5 speakers.
