As long as the B/R player decodes the audio codecs (TrueHD, DTS Master Audio, etc.) the RDC 7.1 can accept them through the 5.1 or 7.1 analog inputs (provided your 7.1 has a multichannel input card installed).

Some receivers/pre-pros can accept the decoded signal over HDMI 1.1 (yes 1.1) if there is enough bandwidth and the player passes via HDMI (option in bluray player, like Marantz, which I have). This is LPCM output. I do not have the HDMI input card on the RDC 7.1, so I don't know if this is possible, but it is on the pre-pro I have which doesn't decode advanced codecs internally.

That said, you are OK. However, there may be some bass management issues and B/R player settings if the analog is used. If HDMI works, then the processor can handle those as LPCM (treats as a PCM input and uses all bass management, speaker settings, etc.). If analog, the player settings have been used (small, large, etc.) so one might just pass that through.

Try to let the player do the least, if possible.

Good luck,

Mike


Hi Mike !

This is good news!!
I have the HDMI card so you think it will work over that to if you let the player do the encoding, thats realy intresting, someone here that can confirm or have tested this?
What bandwidth do you think will be needed to get this to work? And what bandwidth does the Integra have?

Before this I just saw my money fly away on a product thats was not future prof at all, now it´s some new hope i my soul !

I got a demo 7.1 on Agon. There is a warranty with this one.

Anyone considering the 5.1 SPDIF mod, currently it is not known if the RDC-7.1 could accept only 5/7.1 24/96 or 5/7.1 16/32 to 24/96 but if the new Panny BD55 is modded then this would apparently just output 24/96 all the time so is a really good partner for a modded RDC-7.1.

I got asked some questions that I'm not sure about. Any help appreciated:

1) how many 7.1 inputs (I think there is one set.)

2) is there bass managment for 7.1 analog material and can it be turned off or on? (I think yes).

3) does the pro logiciix overlay onto 7.1 analog when there is only 5.1 material? (I think yes).

Thanks!

1) One or two sets depiending on the input card installed (Is either 2 7.1 Inputs or a 7.1 and AES/EBU digital)

2) Yes and it can be turned off with true analogue bypass.

3) Yes
