Yeah - we get the sound through all the speakers (front and through TV), and the Magnadyne is set up for 5.1, but I have no idea if the 5.1 works through the TV. (????) Really not an issue with me... we don't watch DVDs hardly ever, and our music is all through the iPod/iphone. Only DVDs I've watched are a set of Ken Burns documentaries my son gave me for Christmas.

The 5.1 Decoding involves sending a signal to a subwoofer, a center channel, two side channels, and two rear channels. Properly encoded, there is different intelligence sent to each speaker. I don't believe it would work without an amplifier!

5.1 sound and support for A2DP were a couple of the reasons I chose the Pioneer over a Kenwood unit.

When I hooked up the Kenwood I followed the same wiring as was on the Magnadyne I used the same wiring that was in a coach and I have sound in the front and back speakers and the Kenwood has a port for a Sub woofer. I personally think the sound is better than on the Magnadyne.
