    Dolby Pro Logic II but how?

    So someone explain to me how you can get DPL II surround sound when the Wii only has LEFT & RIGHT audio outputs?

    have a look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolby_Pro_Logic
    I think all pro logic does is turn stereo sound into 5.1.. Ive got my Wii connected to my Logitech Z-5500 and it does a pretty good job at turning it into 5.1 tennis sounds good when the mii cheers it comes out of the rear speakers sound like im really there lol....
    It would of been better if nintendo could of put and optical cable slot in then we could of had full 5.1 or even DTS but from what ive read prologic is a cheaper way..

    ya 5.1 has been around before HDMI or Coax digital audio anyway... all 5.1 is is stereo sound split up.. there is no thing as true surround sound its all just digital enhanced stereo... they dont have 5 boom mics on a set on each side to get your surround sound... its all in the decoder... so if you have surround sound with D 5.1 all you do is plug in the left and right,hdmi,coax cable into it and it will inturn decode it as surround sound breaking up the stereo into 5 channels gives you the illusion of surround sound... the only place your gonna find "real" surround sound is at an IMAX theater... no one else waste the money or time on it.. its just software...

    Thanks for the details everyone put about DPL II. I sorta knew that already, I was just wondering how the Wii does it with just LEFT & RIGHT.

    LIP --- I have mine plugged into the side and I don't really hear much to the rears, what "effect" setting do you use on the Logitech with the Wii??

    Why do you say this? How is the sound from an IMAX movie any different than that of a digital movie in a theater?

    Ok, some information in here is correct, while the other half, well, you really haven't researched the information

    5.1 surround sound means there are 6 speakers total, 5 normal speakers, center/left/right/rear right/rear left, and 1 sub only speaker, and since the sub is only like 1/3 of an average speaker (sub/mid/tweeter), it's only a .1 speaker

    Older decoders, like ADCOM for example (I give this brand given my stepfather's decoder is an ADCOM), did exactly as you said, took the standard stereo connections and decoded the rear and center sounds out of the stereo sounds

    Now for the thing you say about that there is only 2 booms for recording in stereo only, that is incorrect, even in the time when there was no coax, fiber optic, or HDMI audio, it depends on the subject, for example, if it's a commercial or infomercial (<spellings?)all you are recording is the subject, the person in the entertainment, which means you only care about the audio from that person, so that only uses 1 boom for recording, for specific stereo recording, there are 2 booms, but for something recorded for surround sound, there are 5 different booms recording, the 5 different channels are still on the media storage (CD, tape, DVD, etc.), but still goes through the stereo cabling and relies on the decoder to separate the center and the rear channels, the same thing happens when you have a mono television, the left and right channels are joined together and the right signal is more silent than the left, same thing goes for 7.1 surround sound, the 7.1 media is recorded with 7 different booms, or whatever microphone they use for that entertainment (and yes, there is a surround standard with 7 speakers, standard 3 in front, but 4 in rear)

    Now for newer media and decoder units that have HDMI, coax, fiber optic, etc., the 5.1 or 7.1 channels of audio are on the media in the 5 or 7 different channels they are in, and the decoder dosen't have to decypher the audio from the stereo cables, therefore you have higher quality audio
