    The reasons people are interested in digital encoded signals are mainly for noise isolation and minimizing the number of connections. If you don't care about those, you don't need DTS/DDL.
    This is correct, I am feeding the AMP via optical cable, and it does decode the DTS/DOLBY 5.1 signal at the AMP. If my amp did not happen to have this feature, I would not miss it

    nice on the Zeus, but IIRC, this amp isn't avaliable any more, and if it is, it's not readily avaliable anywhere I've seen (especially over on this side of the pond)

    Its made by MAXXSONICS, I was told it will be reintroduced under thier AUTOTEK brand with added sub control knob, etc. Not sure what model number will be or when they will release the updated version.

    By the way, Fry's electronics carried them in California. May still be able to find one.

    heres one on ebay for example; not sure about seller...

    Yeah, Bluegears has since gotten purchased by Auzentech. I got one of the cards, and it sounds incredible. I'll try and find the original item link and post it.
