Hi all,
I own 2X8030A and 1X7060A.
I's like to move one 8030 to central position and the other one to rear central position.
Get then 2X8040A and so have a very nice stereo sound and a good enoungh 4+1 ht sound.

but,

having a vu+ solo due or Bravia out digital sound output what can I do to split them to line out for genelec?

1. linux pc and RME Babyface USB 2.0 High Speed Audio Interface 10 in, 12 out or similar
2. onkyo, but I don't need its power output

other options?

Thx,
Raffaele

Hi,

If you want a real multichannel sound, you need a device with a Dolby decoder to decode the digital multichannel audio stream. You should look for AV-receivers with pre amp outputs, which can be found from all major brands such as Onkyo, Yamaha, Marantz, Pioneer etc.

You can also connect speakers through VU+ Solo2 analog outputs but then you will only have stereo sound, no Dolby multichannel.
