    old thread i know but that PT5.1 doesnt seem like it was very well designed...

    I beg to differ. It looks pretty well-designed to me. BTW, the amp I recommended can be found here. I've had it for a long time now, and it hasn't given me any problems.

    I'll have to make my way across the "Falls" and see your set-up sometime. I haven't installed my PT ICBM 5.1 yet and could use some pointers on setting it up and config'ing it. Nice to see another vender for this. I wonder how his supply for the IR remote control is.

    Pretty old thread. Thought I'd bump it to see if there's anything new, as I'm helping a mate plan his carpc and an amp with optical inputs would probably be the best way to do it.

    Nice to see another Z here.
    I'll have an eye on this thread to see what amp you decide on with optical input.
    cheers,

    Two sources, Both 5.1.. One AMP?

    Hi

    I was wondering if anyone can help me..
    I have a 5.1 pioneer setup in my car and would like to add a 5.1 hdd media player to the system and would like to use 5.1 sound from both sources from my head unit and the hdd player, after a little thinking I came up with a solution as follows:

    If I was to buy a multi channel amplifier with both 5.1 rca input and optical input and was to connect the hdd to the amplifiers optical and the video to my pioneer unit I would have 5.1 sound but heres the part I'm not to sure about.... now my pioneer unit has a 5.1 rca output if I was to connect the 5.1 output to the amplifiers 5.1 rca input I should now have both sources 5.1 the hdd will be connected via optical and my pioneer avh systems 5.1 will be connected via 5.1 rca now all I should be doing is switching the source from the amplifier remote to listen to which ever one I prefer.

    Does anyone think otherwise?? or will this work?
    and most importantly which amplifier has this connectivity 5.1 rca input and optical input?
    and where can i get one from?

    Thanks in advance folks.
