Thank you for your help, I have been racking my brains for this for days now, trying to get a simple enough setup for people to use. Can I put an idea to the tribe.... I want to run the HDMI sources through a 5.1/7.1 denon preamp which has xlr and phono outputs.can I; take the outputs I want into the X32 inputs Use the internal preset of the DCX2496 to create a surround sound for front and rear left and right speakers (into amplifiers and passive speakers) use a sub channel on the X32 to go straight to the active subs centre channel to go to active floor monitors - this should makup the 5.1 surround setup that has been decoded from the denon preamp. this way (in my head), i can use the DCX setup for normal live music and theatre, as the monitor can be changed to do its job in those settings, so therefore there would be minimal change. Infact using sound sources for theatre maybe good to have in surround for a more immersive experience. Does anyone think this would work, or have I just made something completely up!
hello. I am fairly new to this idea so if there is anyone that can help then great. I am getting a x32 setup, with the DCX2496, 2 front of house, 2 rear (1 amp) and 2 subs (1 amp). I also have coming a projector with a audio de-embedder that i was going to connect to the AUX of the X32, and somehow have surround sound come out of the speakers. Can someone point me in the right direction of a setup. I am going to assume; SPDIF from audio de embedder, into the AUX 5 or 6 of the X32 split into front / rear / mono sub channels (is this possible?!) go into DCX2496 and out to the speakers (Do I need 2 of these to split into front and rear, so use more outputs on the X32 into the DCX?) I hope this makes sense, and thanks in advance
