Yes, they exist. Here is an example of one with remote control.Is there a multi fiber optic input. If you have one input on your receiver I would like to have more than one is their a way? I want to run at least 3 fiber optic cables in to my receiver what do I need to get?
A PS3 should be connected with HDMI rather than S/PDIF. Have you tried the PS3 as a CD player?I want to have one cable from my ps3, one from cd player, and one from my tv all going into my receiver.
Yes. As I said previously, S/PDIF isn't capable of some of the new data rates with >5.1 sound so they've been wishing it would go away for a while now. Coax (RCA) is capable of perhaps double the data rate of S/PDIF but HDMI is where everything in home theater has been headed (on the source end) for the last five years or so. It wasn't until a couple of months ago that the Xbox One supported Dolby Digital (AC3) over S/PDIF while the HDMI connection has supported Dolby ATMOS for a couple of years (DTS:X support was recently added).Are they getting away from fiber optic when it comes to audio?
Still kicking myself for not getting the Yamaha AC-3 to Digital Dolby converter. My old Marantz AVR had an RF input to take my LaserDiscs with that surround encoding. Of course, most of those movies on LD are available via streaming, but some I haven't been able to find.The only downside to the newest equipment is that they have forsaken older devices by reducing/removing phono inputs (for turntable cartridges) and S-VHS inputs.
I can safely say I've never seen an AC-3 encoded LASERdisc. I got out of LASERDiscs shortly before AC-3 discs showed up in 1995. Of course I didn't have a suitable sound system (I didn't have a center channel speaker) until well after LASERdisc was done (1999). All tolled, it looks like there were less than 500 different US AC-3 LASERdisc titles.My old Marantz AVR had an RF input to take my LaserDiscs with that surround encoding.
Yep, I've got Duran Duran, Thomas Dolby, Laura Brannigan; musicals like "Pippin", musical comedies like "Guys and Dolls" & "Xanadu". Plus, I have the box sets of all the Star Trek Movies, the Original Extended Edition of Star Wars, the Animated Star Trek series, a few select "Babylon 5" episodes (along the the original Star Trek and ST: TNG).I think music is probably the thing.
