IMO, using the Dolby Digital output on my StarChoice receiver is one reason why almost all of their audio channels sound great. Here are other reasons:Originally posted by vanoostrom
I have hooked the digital audio output to my audio receiver and it sounds very good.
-Using high quality speaker wire to all speakers.
-Using a quality home audio system....Dolby Digital audio receiver and five good quality speakers plus sub-woofer.
BTW...I'm quite sure about the following...
......None of the four mini-dish systems(Dish, DirecTV, ExpressVu or StarChoice) have Dolby Digital outputs on their entry level receivers.....You have to pay $$ to get the DD capable units.
Amazingly, Dish & ExpressVu's entry level systems aren't even Dolby Pro-Logic capable....instead they use European "Musicam" sound technology!
