I have NO idea if anyone makes such a thing, and my Google skillz apparently suck cuz I can't find a damn thing about it.

Does anyone out there make an audio compressor unit that uses Optical Cable ins/outs? I'd DIE to put on in my home theater system so even out the audio between channels even more than what my satellite system does. It works ok, but it could be so much better.

by "even out" do you mean treble 10, gain 10, presence 10 bass 10, mids -infinity?

because if you do.... awesome \m/

Clearly you don't know the difference between a compressor and an equalizer :fawk:

Now, this brings up a good point.... anyone know of an equalizer that works on Optical cables? :lol:

It might not be real cheap either but I would think you could also build yourself a PC that would do this. You'd need a decent PC, an audio card that had optical in/out and surround processing capabilities and then some software that was capable of processing on the fly. It would likely be messy as hell and would be a whole lot of work. As some one already mentioned you might be screwed by the digital encoding as well. I can't say I've ever tried to decode an incoming DTS/Dolby surround signal.

In any case. If you find something. Don't tell my wife. I'd have to buy one. She's a notorious "volume rider". Drives me nucking futz! :lol:
