Pro Logic II Setup Question


Recommended Posts

So I got my hands on a cheap Pro Logic II setup. I was wondering if anyone knew if I would get better sound results when watching a DVD in 5.1 or 2.1, since the Pro Logic is designed to split the stereo signal. Didn't know if 5.1 would still sound funny because its not actually taking the 5.1 channels.

Not quite sure what you have there....

I would imagine if this reciever you have supports PLII wouldn't it by default have support for dolby 5.1?

What is you actually have there, do you have 5 speakers? Is it audio reciever or sound card?

If it really only supports PLII then 5.1 would on be received as 2 channel stereo, so to avoid any channel loss use 2.1 sound.

Doli

give it a try and then you decide. Doesnt sound that bad/good depends on your ear hard to say. Great if you have a Gamecube but sometimes im too lazy to set it up :p

Music sometimes sounds good in pro logic

pro logic is only for sounds that are not encoded in 5.1, it is basically simulating 5.1. so basically if you have a old movie that is 2.1, it'll try to make it sound like 5.1. so either way, pro logic sucks compared to dolby digital 5.1 or DTS.

:p I know its nothing compared to Dolby Digital or DTS, but I got the whole thing for really cheap and I figured it was better than just the speakers in my TV. I guess I'll just have to try for myself.
