first off hi all ive just joined this forums as you all sound like a helpful bunch

this is my problem i have to do a film night at a bar and the owner wants 5.1 sound i have plenty of amps and speakers as i have a sound system i hire out.

at home i have a jvc 5.1 decoder/amp but it is no way powerful to run it on a large scale and has no pre outs what kind of sound quality would i get if i ran hi level to low level converters or would something like this be a better option

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Digital-Dolby-DTS-AC3-Optical-to-Analog-5-1-Stereo-Surround-Audio-Sound-Decoder-/251027680843?pt=UK_Sound_Vision_Other&hash=item3a726a6e4b

thanks jordan

This is exactly the kind of device you'd want to convert an optical or digital coax signal into analog 5.1. High level-to-low level connections are a recipe for reliability problems. The only concern is if this unit's output voltage is sufficiently high for your hire-out amp. Pro amps tend to have higher input sensitivities than consumer gear. And you need the SPDI/F source...

HAve fun,
Frank
