Question about Sony SDP-EP9ES Receiver

1 Answer

Sony SDP-EP9ES The above piece does not have DTS. Is there a stand alone DTS decoder that I can add that will solve this problem. I really like this piece and don't want to retirer it for something new. Since the EP9ES does not have its own amplification, isn't it refered to as a processor and not amplifier?

It is a preamplifier with sound processing which is sometimes referred to as pre pro... There is a simple solution to lack of DTS, the unit has 5 analog bypas inputs, bypass as they do not go through units Digital Signal Processing circuitry and DD processor.
If you have a DVD/BD player that has five (or more) analog outpusts you plug them in into your preamp and have the player decode DTS to analog signal. If the player has five analog outputs it mostly like has the on-board decoder. Other than this you can use a stand-analog DTS decoder in the same manner but it sounds like a cumbersome and costly alternative. Hope this helps.

Yamaha RX-V595 Receiver will play Dolby Digital 3/2.1 audio Blu-Ray disc with player set to bitstream but will not play DTS-HD 3/2.1 unless output is set to PCM. Is this an issue with the Yamaha Recei


The optical connection (SPDIF) doesn't have enough bandwidth to transfer DTS-HD audio. To use DTS-HD, you must connect the blue-ray player and receiver via HDMI cable.

Each DTS-HD audio track on blue-ray includes also "normal" DTS audio, which is probably used when you select PCM. Player decodes it and sends decoded (non-HD) audio via optical cable to receiver.

Auto format decode means?


HI,
There are so many audo formats like Dolby Digital Decoding, Dolby Digital EX Decoding, Dolby Pro Logic Decoding, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Pro Logic IIX Decoding, dts 96/24 Decoding, dts Decoding, dts NEO:6 Decoding and dts ES Decoding Stereo etc. What ever the AVR get a digital input It will decode the format and convert the same While it in the Auto format mode. If auto format is not selected it will convert the same in to stereo.

Didn't supporting DTS when playing DTS filims no sound is hearing i would like to make DTS support on my dvd philips any codecs for that or any other way?


Maybe your player,simply does not decode dts streams.
All you need to do is to buy a decent receiver with digital inputs.Connect player to receiver using an optical or coaxial cable[or hdmi 1.3/1.4 cable] and let the receiver do the dts decoding......
Don't forget:sett the audio output in your player to "bitstream".

Hi i have problems with SOny STR-DE958 and DTS. I use Win7 and optic cable. When i test for DTS my Sony didn`t make any noice. Only work Dolby. I test with normal cables in Multi in all work. And optic...


What's connected to what? And which way are you going? Is a PC part of this scenario (you mention Win7)? Maybe you should start there.

The Sony knows DTS. The PC, who can say?

DTS is a bitstream-audio function and many sources need to be told to send it to their digital outputs because without decoding it will only sound like high volume static noise. The DTS-compatible receiver decodes it to its analog multiple channels. It doesn't suk. Look it up on Wiki.

If you are playing media that has both dolby digital audio and dts audio, your player and your receiver will decode the first audio codec listed first by default unless you select it otherwise yourself. If your remote or receiver has an A.F.D. (auto format decode) button, press it until your display shows that the sound source is dolby digital or DTS, whichever sound mode it was you wanted when you started your DVD.

Different Audio options from an older receiver


If your receiver has a multichannel input and the player has the multchannel output then that is the only way you can get surround sound from it with source inputs that it cannot decode, such as DTS. The player will then do it alone.
However, in the setup menu of the blu ray player you should be able to change the audio output to downmix to 2ch audio...at least you'll get to watch the movie.

Cannot get yamaha rx-v663 to play DDTrueHD or DTS HD audio


If your Blu-Ray player has TrueHD or DTS-MA decoding, then it will send a already-decoded audio signal to your receiver. The receiver should then just recognize this as "Straight" decoding, because it isn't actually doing any decoding.

Hope this helps.

No DTS-HDMA or Dolby TrueHD shown on display


DTS-HDMA and Dolby TrueHD cannot be passed to your receiver via bitstream on the PS3. DTS-HDMA cannot be decoded either so you're out of luck there.
Dolby TrueHD can be decoded internally on the PS3 assuming your firmware is up to date. Set the Blu-ray HDMI output to PCM and you can then pass it to your receiver.
If this doesnt work, do a system update on your PS3.

I have a panasonic SC-PT850 DVD home cinema system, and although it says it is DTS and Dolby 5.1 compatable but it does not give out any sound at all when i play Blueray films or Playstation 3 games which...


Not so much an answer more a shared problem with a slight insight. On the Panasonic manual page 40 http://www.panasonic.ae/EN/Manuals/SC-PT550%20-%20850W.pdf
It states the following: This unit can decode the surround signals received through cable TV box, digital broadcasting or satellite broadcasts. Refer to your equipment’s operating instructions for details. Only Dolby Digital and PCM can be played with this connection.
So it sounds like the SA-PT850 unit will decode DTS from an internal source ie DVD but not from an external source ie ps3 or WDTV which is a shame because I own a WDTV. The solution for me is to convert the dts to ac3 (Dolby digital) which works great. But not sure if this is an option for you.

Jan said: You've not made the problem clear. The sound "pauses" every fifteen seconds? For how long and what happens when it comes back? Which DTS decoder are you using and which connection between player and amplifier have you decided to use?
