    I searched the forums back two years to try and find a thread specifically about this. I just started hearing about it in this thread. If it doesn't belong here please move it.

    I was almost ready to buy a Denon 3806 until I heard that it doesn't do 7.1 in LPCM. I am not clear at all what LPCM is or does.

    The 3806 is rated for 7.1. It has higher watts per channel than the 2807 and also it has 4 power supplies and better DACs as I understand.

    So before I plunk down 800-1000 bucks on something that cannot produce 7.1, could some please explain what LPCM is and does.

    I would appreciate it.
