If i should be using the same thread as i previous had going before, please lemme know,
Ok, so im delving more and more into the whole surround sound thing (idiot) and let me just say, dB you said it was a whole new world, and well you werent mincing words.
i havent even set up everything yet and already i can see potential issues.
Ive talked to a few people now on S/S and well, i think alot of em (like so many people do on things) say they know but really dont have a ****** clue. Theyve just decided how it probably works in their minds and they just go with that.
next thing you know, your all ****** up and dunno what's going on.
im getting there with things, but keep hearing other things to contrary.
anyway, i have a couple of questions.
firstly, it seems i only have 4 assignable outputs, and a digi out, for surround.
So im gonna have to hook up the centre speaker to the digi out, and buy a D/A converter for that.
could it be worth getting an interface or something, that just has 5.1 S/S capabilties right off the bat?
question 1 is,
a guy i talked to said its not worth mixing in surround, and if you mix in say 5.0 (in my case) then when thrown to CD, other sound systems such as a normal stereo, wont be able to pick up alot of the tracks.
Is this the case?
Now, i have CD's that "are" recorded in 5.1 S/S, and i can play them fine on a normal stereo.
Is this due to the fact that its burned to a DVD?
and will i have to get some sort of program to make it possible for the CD or DVD to played on all sound sytems?
As you can see, im not quite getting it atm, and i think its due to getting a bum steer somewhat, so would love a run down on stuff if ya'll have the time.
even some links or something'd be good.
