Subject: AC3 pass through

AC3 pass through

Hi!

Is AC3 pass through possible with the Iriver 1xx digital out? This
leads to the more general question: If the Iriver is directly
connected to an external decoder of any kind, can the internal
decoding be switched off to save cpu power. In that mode data would
only be read from HD and sent via the digital link. Of course most
useful for 5.1 stuff, as I doubt, that an external amplifier with mp3
decoder exists. And even if it would exist it would run an propietary
protocol. wouldn`t it, sigh?
