Hi all,

I was reading a lot of info on the Denon AVD-2000. I am about to purchase this unit, but I am not sure it works as I hope it will.
When I connect a laserdisc player to the AC3 input, does the unit output the 5.1 via the optical digital output? (Just like the Sony EP90ES for example).
On the forum I understood this is the case, but according to an eBay seller it only output 2 channel via the digital output when using AC3 from a laserdisc...

So I am a bit confused what this unit can and can't do.
Any thoughts on this?


Many thanks,
Jeroen

The Denon AVD-2000 has got 2 digital optical inputs, 2 digital coaxial inputs, and 1 AC3-RF input, and it can select any one of these 5 different input channels - manually by either pressing a button on the front or on the remote control. The digital content of the selected channel is directly sent to the one optical spdif (Toslink) output and in parallel is also processed by the built-in Dolby Digital 5.1 decoder. The resulting analog 5.1 channel signal from the decoder (or from the analog 5.1 channel input connectors) is then processed by the equalizer and timeshifter and output only on the analog 5.1 channel preamp output connectors (which may get connected to power amps to drive the speakers). So the digital output does simple thru-streaming of the digital input, not modifying any of its content.

So one may use the Denon AVD-2000 as Dolby Digital 5.1 Decoder with analog 5.1 channel preamp output - or simply as an AV-Switch for up to 5 different digital incoming signals, or you may use it simply as "AC3-RF Demodulator", or as a combination of that all. I have connected the digital optical output and also the AC3 RF output of my laserdisc player to the AVD-2000, and the digital optical output of the AVD-2000 to my modern AV-Switch (which is able to decode Dolby Digital as well as DTS etc.). The analog output of my laserdisc Player however is separately connected to analog input connectors of my modern AV-Switch. Like this I am able to listen to all Laserdisc soundtracks in any possible configuration: analog mono/stereo/bilingual/Dolby Surround, digital mono/stereo/bilingual/Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital, DDEX or DTS ... :)


Hope that helps.

So that means AC3 to DD5.1 via the optical out works. Cool, thanks!
I guess the eBay seller is using the Denon wrong or something...

Looks like a nice unit, I say go for it, I have a sony e800 and am very happy with it, but I like the the looks of this Denon a little better.

If you do get it, luck and enjoy. :thumbup:

Thanks for the help guys!
In the meantime I picked up the AVD2000 and connected it to my setup. AC3 to DD5.1 works just great via the digital output :D
