OK, I was having a discussion with a freind here at work. I have just gotten a Panasonic DVD-RP82s, replacing my Xbox as my primary DVD player. So, as you can probably guess, I love the pannay alot, and I was telling him that even the sound, sounds better. The highs sound higher, and the lows sound lower. I can actually feel the hits in Fight Club! He says with a digital connection and the same reciever doing the decoding, that there should be absolutely no difference in the sound, seeing as it's the same 0's and 1's. I kinda agree with him in theory, but I told him that I can hear the difference, heck I even thought I heard a difference between the Xbox and the PS2 (PS2 being better sounding). He says it's just the placibol (sp?) effect, because I want to like my new DVD player so much. I told him there has to be a difference in the way the different chips send the data to the reciver, otherwise why would anyone buy more than a $89 dollar DVD player, other than more features.
So anybody know? Is there a difference between digital sound quality in different DVD players? Or are all the 0's and 1's the same.
