The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

treitz3 wrote:All I'm really trying to do here is improve the sound coming off the Directv receiver. The HD receivers are quite a big jump up [audio wise] from the standard ones and I was just wondering if I could further improve upon the audio or not. The video I have is so good, I have NO complaints whatsoever and video isn't very high up on my list of priorities. Especially if I'm completely satisfied with what I've got.....just lookin' to improve the sound, if I can. The cable was the first thing that came into mind.
Magnaryder wrote:...your first 'bind' might be in the coax between the satellite dish and the receiver. some folks claim the digital link can affect the sound. being the meticulous dude you are, treat each connection like you would in 'Sparky'. is the throughput speed fast enough to deliver all of the data broadcast thru the dish to the receiver then thru your choice of RCAs on to whatever you are playing it back on?
Magnaryder wrote:Since you have a myriad of ICs at home to play with AND since you already have a handle on how they react in your rig you can use that as a starting point to tweek the sound to your liking...... keep in mind these things weren't built with audio geeks in mind. Like Cds....either good and bad you are at the mercy of the recording engineer/producer/movie mogul and whatever.

Magnaryder wrote:Tom, look at the specs of your DTV receiver. If IIRC they(movie studios) are using masking protocols to reduce the amount of data available for each channel of the sound track. There might not be all that much data to decode, affecting the sound.
