Hi. Is a DVD player with a built-in 6 channel receiver enough to receive Dolby and DTS 5.1 sound output from an LCD TV is the DVD player supports both? I'll be using the LCD TV's speakers (therefore no separate amplifier).
Are you wanting to play DTS though your TV speakers???? And are you saying your DVD player has both a decoder (DTS and Dolby digital) as well as an amplifier built-in?
Anyway, it really doesn't matter what sound stream (DTS, Dolby), you use since your TV speakers are going to only be stereo and probably fairly limited in quality. In fact, you're probably better off selecting Dolby Digital 2.0 for sound.
If you provide more details about what you're trying to accomplish, than maybe I can help more.
I was wondering if it's possible to get DTS 5.1 or Dolby Digital sound through a TV's speakers using a DVD player with a receiver built in, but without an amplifier. I'm new to these types of sound setups.
Basicially my question is do you need all 3 (receiver, amplifier, and external speakers) to be able to get DTS 5.1 or Dolby Digital sound from DVDs?
Unless your TV has 5.1 distinct speakers, then you cannot get 5.1 DD or DTS. (It would be hard for your TV to have 6 speakers surrounding you.) The other part of your question that I think you may have been confused about is a receiver and amp. Most receivers are a combination of pre-amp, amp, and tuner. So if you have a receiver, you are ok. Sounds like you may just need some speakers.
