Can I downmix L,R,C,LFE but not surrounds into RCA output?
I want to go back to using my stereo speakers and stereo amplifier, without using a center speaker or subwoofer. But I would like to use surround speakers powered by either a separate amp or AV receiver.
So I need to find a practical way for a blu-ray player or AV receiver to mix the L, R, C, and LFE channels (but not the surround channels) into the stereo RCA outputs. Are there any Blu-Ray players that will do this? Or do I buy an AV receiver that will mix these channels at the pre-outs, and then I use the amplification on that receiver for only the surround speakers?
Any suggestion or insights are welcome. Thanks.
