Is there a BD player that can auto output Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC3) regardless of what format is offered on discs? (BESIDES the PS3) - AVS Forum

The title says it all.

The PS3 seems to be the only device I've seen that will do this. I have an old amp with only Dolby Digital (AC3) decoding and NO analog pre-inputs sadly. I don't like using a PS3 for watching BD's but I hate how none of the new BD's offer a basic English 5.1 DD/AC3 soundtrack - its all DTS or DD TrueHD, etc. So I'm forced to listen to a 2 channel down mix from the player.

If no BD players are capable of doing this, what are other options besides upgrading my amp?

I believe a Dolby TrueHD track will result in multi-channel lossy dolby digital audio in your circumstance.
But DTS is a problem for you if no lossy DTS decoding is available in your receiver.
I expect lossless multi-channel pcm is an issue also.

An old Philips and some Samsung models (inc. the D-5500, D-6700) can re-encode other formats to DD.

Audiosceptics accept audio trials using 25 people. A recent Oxford study with over 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials shows for every 1,000 people taking diclofenac or ibuprofen there would be 3 additional heart attacks, 4 more cases of heart failure and 1 death every year.
