Protools and Dolby e

I want to try incorporate a domestic home theater system into my studio and then send the dolby e encoded audio out of the optical and decode through the amp. I want to try give my clients the most realistic interpretation of the mix as it should sound at home. Has anyone tried this? Should I rather look at taking out the Lt-Rt? Any suggestions please

i think a home theater audio system can´t decode dolby e, only AC3.

Dolby E is strictly for broadcast 5.1+2 workflow. The encode/decode devices are not cheap. Best thing is go with Dolby Digital (.ac3) files which can be generated by several software packages and decoded on every DVD/Bluray player. For better sound quality on DVD, look into a dts encoder. Less money than a pro Dolby encoder and will play on all DVD/Bluray players.

How about a Denon A7100 as a decoder?

I am considering a similar setup as part of a new film screening room / project studio control room.

Sure, but not for Dolby E.
