I have an APD-2 but I'm thinking of buying a Pioneer decoder. Is the APD-2 enough to work in tandem with my existing AV setup, or is a full-fat decoder a good investment? Mainly for AC-3, but also for Dolby Digital and DTS. I'm more interested in if decoder is better over a modulator when I go to digitise my collection.

If you must have AC-3 then the best thing to get are the stand alone pieces.

What you have is good enough, if you want to get one of the decoders that has all the inputs and outputs then piggyback that into a larger AV then fine.

But you are just going to be buying the same things in different shapes.

Perfect. That's more or less the answer I was looking for. I'm keen to have AC-3 because a couple of discs I have it has different features on different soundtracks on the disc so I want access to them all. Thank you.
