Thanks to all postings , my decision to go with Onkyo was a GREAT one !
I have a 7.1 surround set up ... and was wondering what PCM stood for ? During playback with cd's on my Yamaha cdc 697 ( another great product ) the indicator on the onkyo 806 only displays l and r speakers , although all speakers are giving playback.
any feedback would be appreciated
PCM, or more accurately LPCM, stands for Linear Pulse Code Modulation. It is the digital stream of an analog audio signal. If you're listening to a CD connected by any digital method (optical, coax, or HDMI) it is going to use PCM.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lpcm
I don't pay a whole lot of attention to the display on my 606, but I'm guessing that it's only displaying L and R speakers because you're listening to a stereo source. If all your speakers are playing then you've probably chosen a mode such as All Channel Stereo or PLIIx Music.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
