Dolby Digital Surround
The Dolby Digital Surround system requires connection of
all five speakers (front left, center, front right, surround right,
surround left) for correct surround sound reproduction.
This 5.1 channel digital surround format allows for five
individual full-range (20Hz - 20kHz) channels plus an LFE
(Low Frequency Effects) channel for the low-range
(20Hz - 120kHz) effects. It creates a realistic sound similar
to theater and cinema. A large number of DVD discs have
recorded in Dolby Digital Surround.
Dolby Pro Logic Surround
The Dolby Pro Logic Surround system is a specially
encoded two channels analog format that will produce
sound through four speaker channels (front left, center,
front right, monaural surround) when a Dolby Pro Logic
Decoder is used. It is also compatible with stereo systems
but the user will only have two channels (Front Left &
Right) of sound.
Dolby 3 Stereo
Dolby 3 Stereo produces sound through three speaker
channels (front left, center, front right) from a two channels
analog signal. It is not a surround format, so it does not
require surround speakers.
All sound is reproduced and played through the front left
and right speakers. This enables standard stereo
