Default Surround Processor Versus MultiChannel Preamplifier With Source Decoding

If your not concerned about video processing how much better is the sound coming from a high-end surround sound processor versus a good high-end blu-ray such as the upcoming Arcam or Oppo that does analog decoding into a preamplifier such as the Parasounds Halo P7? I just don't understand why a high-end company would even include audio decoding in a player if their intent is for us to go and buy a surround processor from them. I'm new and just trying to understand the real and theoretical differences. It would seem to me that a MultiChannel preamplifier would get better milage than surround processors that seem difficult to build and are slow to market.

Joe,

Bass management, speaker setup and room correction are only a few of the reasons. Yes, their are very good multichannel analog preamps out there, but in order to correct for speaker placement and size differences is extremely difficult in the analog domain. This is why it is best to send the digital stream (bitstream of LPCM) to a surround processor (either receiver or pre/pro) and let all things be done in the digital domain then convert them to analog.

like a concert, ballet or Calgary Asian Escort other aesthetic event after which the performers throw their clothes down and leave them in the wardrobes. Seminars used to be held during the day, but now most of the events, specifically corporate Calgary Escort ones and other crowd pulling parties start at night and continue Calgary Asian Escorts till early morning. People can choose any of these look accessories to elevate their looks. I don't distinguish with respect to you, but with a view me, being a clone of Calgary Escorts
