I have a Sony BD-1 BR player. It has 5.1 analog, uncompressed?, outputs.


I have a 7.1 reciever. Can (or should) I split the surround channels with

a "Y" splitter so I can get sound out of all 7 speakers?


Is using the analog outputs the best way to get the best sound? My reciever

does NOT have HDMI. I am currently using the Digital coax output.


Thanks

IF your receiver is 7.1 you just plug the back speakers in to the correct port on the back of the receiver & that will convert 5.1 to 7.1. Spliting the wire will add Nothing to surround sound, both the speaker will just simutanously go off at the same time. + then your running 2 speakers off a port that is made to run just 1 speaker.

Or yes that will work just fine if you are running your 5.1 outs to a 7.1 in.

That is the easy decent way to do it. I ran this way for a while. Works well.

My speakers before was at the sides and I used the side surround connections. Now my speakers are in the rear so would I do like you said in your quote.


I am debating getting my other 2 speakers for the sides, but will it make any difference in sound?
