Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

why do you guys treat people this way?

Maybe I am totally wrong, and even though this question is vague, we all have to start somewhere. I will try to answer this question as well as I can.. Speakers cannot be "digital"...the input signal needs to be converted from a digital source and then amplified. Disc players (CD's, DVD's and Blu Ray players), TV's, receivers or amplifiers and computers can convert the signal to analog form and receivers, amps and TVs can amplify the signal. It is usually best if receivers or amplifiers do this because they often have the best DAC's (Digital to analog convertor) and only they can send a separate signal to each speaker. You are probably confused because some speakers (a lot of subwoofers) have their own amplifier...especially true with computer speakers. Confusing the issue more is some speakers (I am thinking of Speakerlab DAS series) uses the word "digital" in their name.
