    Rotel XS surround mode

    Hi Folks,

    I'm trying to figure out if the XS surround processing works on analog
    inputs so I can make use of all 4 surround speakers (side + rear).
    After reading the rotel 1055 manual it looks like XS only
    works on digital inputs but I'm not 100% sure.

    I'd like to know that the surround back channels will be used
    when I watch analog sources (eg VCR input) which I like to view in
    DPLII mode.

    Thanks

    Yes the XS processing will engage on analog modes if you let it....meaning if you have 6 or 7 speakers and choose pro logic II decoding it will use the XS processing to decode the rear channels.

      Thanks Andrew, that's cleared up that - the 1055 (and 1066) manual
      seemed to suggest it only worked with digital sources.

      Cheers

        Probably what they meant to say is that XS only works with digitally processed signals. For an analog input, if you stay in stereo mode you're actually using the analog bypass and the signal is never touched by the DSP's. On the other hand, if you select ProLogic-2 or one of the other surround/DSP modes, then the analog signal is converted to digital and processed by the DSP's, in which case XS processing can also be applied.
