RE: External speaker out help for Panasonic S-series plasma

From the manual it automatically outputs Dolby Digital for digital channels (ATSC) which is probably a problem for your DACs.

DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminal:
You can enjoy your Home theater by connecting a Dolby Digital (5.1 channel) decoder and "Multi Channel" amplifier to the
DIGITALAUDIO OUT terminals.
( Caution )
® Depending on your DVD player and DVD-Audio software the copyright protection function may operate and disable optical
output.
® When an ATSC channel is selected, the output from the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack will be Dolby Digital. When an NTSC
channel is selected, the output will be PCM.
® When playing a movie on SD Card Movie player, when the sound has been recorded in Dolby Digital, the output from the
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminal will be Dolby Digital. When the sound is recorded in other formats, the output will be PCM.
