Pre-pro HDMI out M/C LPCM

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am trying to find a pre-processor that can decode all the latest formats (TrueHD etc) and output Multi Channel PCM via HDMI. I cannot find any info from different manufactures for this specification.

I was hoping a member here has had experience with there Pre-pro and can offer some light on the subject.

I did try one processor, but there was only 2 channel audio PCM over HDMI out.

It is possible with the Oppo and my PC soundcard.

Why, and what are you trying to actually accomplish?

I have the Smyth A8 Realiser, it has a HDMI input which I would like to take advantage of. I am trying to keep the signal digital until it reaches the DAC, then Balanced XLR to the amp. The Realiser has 7.1 analogue inputs, but that would mean D/A > A/D > D/A.

Bluray/PC > Pre-pro > Realiser > DAC > Amp > Headphones


At the moment I have the PC connected directly to the Realiser with HDMI, this works with multi channel PCM, but I would really like to add a Processor.

Why can you not just send Multi Channel PCM via HDMI from the source?

If you would read my post you will see were I said, currently my source is the PC soundcard, although this works for HDMI multi channel PCM, I would prefer to use an advanced SSP as my source and bitstream DTS-MA to the SSP.
