    Well,
    I was taking a look on ebay, and I found a Yamaha DSP E-200
    It has tons of DSP's,DPL, and an enhanced DPL...
    Now,
    Is "Enhanced DPL" something actually invented by Dolby? Or, is it some corney DSP thing?
    Is it much of an improvement?
    Do you think it will improve on a DIY 6.1?
    Thanks,
    Nathan

    Certain Yammy receivers/amps have outputs for 2 extra front "effects" speakers. When enhanced is on (it works with Dolby Digital, too) using DSPs, they extract sound to send to them. Some like the effect as it tends to expand the front soundfield; but it depends on the soundtrack as well.

    Generally, Yamaha receivers offer standard Pro-Logic and an additional "enhanced" mode. I think it generally means a kind of DSP that is supposed to add additional phantom rear speakers like the back of a movie theater. You might find an explanation of this on the Yamaha web site. I personally do not care for this mode which is also offered (at least on the 2095 receiver) for Dolby Digital and DTS as well.
