Default home theater with 2 channel preamp


Does anybody know of a way to create a true home theater system using a 2 channel preamp? The sound comes out of the dvd player through regular rca cables, so maybe some kind of processor could come before the amp, that would split the signal to different amps, and then of course different speakers! Has anybody tried something like this?

You won't get true 5.1 sound from a stereo output. You either need to get a DVD player with pre-decoded output (6 RCA jacks for audio), or one with digital out and a reciever.

You can get processors that just decode the audio into 6 channels but these are usually super expensive.
