  1. AV Home Theater
    So, I was noticing that my xbox isn't playing proper codecs on Blu-Rays. Is this something I did to settings? Or has it never played it properly. When i play Akira with Tru-HD it says on the xbox that its playing Dolby Digital. On the Onkyo it says PCM. When I tried the supersonic codec on...
  2. Two Channel Audio
    Guys, I need a consumer line level wireless transmitter and receiver that works well and is lossless. The Fiio W1 is not being sold anymore, so, what can I use? I am hoping to have rca and optical toslink inputs. The other end can have coax digital or RCA outs. It is to route sound to a...
  3. Two Channel Audio
    Be been using Plex as a DLNA direct wireless to my RX-A3040. The connection is spotty at best with many dropouts. I'm playing FLAC files purchased from HDTracks via Plex. I'd like a better solution to playback these files. Suggestions?

    I have been reading around about losslees Bluetooth receivers, but are they really? Is there a such thing? I have been searching for it and can't find the information about it.

  6. Audio Processing
    I don't have a surround setup, but a very nice stereo setup and I'm trying to figure out how to get the lossless Blu Ray audio (TrueHD, LPCM, DTD-HD) in stereo for my setup. I'm using my HTPC to output the video and sound to my projector and speakers. How can I get lossless audio to my stereo...
  7. Audio Processing
    Anyone using WMA Lossless for media storage? I am looking for a lossless format and this seems to be about as good as any other. Ripping a CD in Widows Media Player is easy enough. I tried FLAC but it won't play in my car, while WMA will.

    Id like to start creating a digital lossless music library. Can flac files (or any lossless music files) be found for free download? Eventually Ill be playing these files with the laptop or the htpc using the Fiio E7/E9 dac/amp combo and the Sennheiser HD650 cans, but I need the best sources...

    Can any decent HDDVD or BluRay players send the super trick, lossless sound formats over a set of RCAs to my 7.1 input? IOW, do they have onboard processing? I'm not in the market for a new receiver, so even this would be a comprimise, because I'd have to either get a switch, or lose DVD-A/SACD...

    I have recently hooked my PC to my HT via digital coax cable. I have ripped my most played CDs to apple lossless, and I'm loving iTunes fullscreen on my LCD. BUT! I firmly believe the sound is degraded quite a bit compared to playing directly off a CD player. I noticed iTunes have a volume...

    I read this in a review of a Blu-ray player on HomeTheaterMag.com http://www.hometheatermag.com/discplayers/0307lgbdhd/ "It doesn’t output any of the new high-resolution audio formats digitally (nor do any of the current players). Instead, you can get them in their analog form via the...

    Hi, quick question. Here's what I believe, please correct if I'm wrong. ---- At least HDMI version 1.1 or greater is required to pass uncompressed PCM translated TrueHD or DTS-HD audio from player to receiver. ---- That means if you have a next gen disc player and receiver w/ HDMI 1.1 or...
