Tech Junkie heeft een review van de Videologic DigiTheater Decoder online gezet. Dit doosje verwerkt digitale AC-3 Dolby Digital 5.1 signalen via de S/PDIF ingang, of Dolby Prologic gecodeerde audio via de normale analoge ingang. Vervolgens dient het apparaat op een versterker aangesloten te worden:
The DigiTheatre performs its job admirably, receiving a digital audio source either through S/PDIF coaxial or Toslink optic fibre, its onboard Digital Signal Processing (DSP) chip churns through and delivers very good decoding results. Dolby Prologic is received through the stereo analogue line in of the decoder and processed.
The DigiTheatre can adjusts its decoding routine according to your room's existing speaker set up. For example if you have the full blown 5.1 speaker system installed then the decoding box can be set up to take advantage of a complete 5.1 speaker system. If on the other hand, you are missing a center speaker, the decoding box can be set up to create a "phantom" center speaker by channelling the center speaker's output to the two front speakers. On the other extreme if your strapped for cash, and have a plain 2-speaker stereo set up the DigiTheatre can be set for that configuration too.
A special 9-conductor "octopus" socket is on the back of the decoder, from this the full 6 line output is delivered to an external amplifier. This rather thick octopus cable supplies the front, rear, AC-3 subwoofer, and center speaker outputs.
