Default Re: Recommendations for a Pre-Amp needed

I'm new to forums, but have been collecting my AV system since 1980. My current setup for movies is a Pioneer blu-ray player connected via HDMI to a DVDO VP-50 (5 months old) scaler/deinterlacer. From there the video goes via HDMI to my Sony VPL-VW100 projector, and the audio via SPDIF coax to my Meridian 568.2 A/V controller.

Now comes the dilemma. How can I hear lossless multi-channel audio from the BD player and process video without tossing out the VP50 and the 568.2, which I am very happy with?

Of course the 568.2 can only process LPCM in stereo (no dialogue from the centre channel) through the coax inputs and has no HDMI switching. I am not interested at all in the latest receivers.
Am I dreaming? Any advice would be appreciated.

You can't, the 568.2 will only do DD or DTS, to take advantage of the new audio formats (DD+, DTS MA HD...) you have to run them via HDMI to a pre/pro or receiver that accepts them, and to date, Meridian hasn't announced such a unit (maybe they will @ CES but we'll see) Keep what you have and run the digital by coax/ optical from the BDP to the Meridian and enjoy.

If you believe the rumors Classé SSP-800 should be the new king of the hill!!



I can't wait to hear a demo supposedly in May is the release date, I think may be Fall is more likely
