    I did a more careful check with a few different discs. It plays DVD-Videos, not DVD-Audios. Sorry for the error.

    I may have saved you more than that... you have to move up from the base model to get the B&O sound system.

    Phantom center! I corrected a problem with my JVC installation. Moved it from a '99 Camry to '06 Camry with JBL amp. With the JVC as only a head unit I could mix center with L/R. Made a passive sum mixer/adapter with four 10K resistors. Now I can hear Andy Partridge without digging out the remote and selecting DTS. Sounds great. A little bass heavy but that's how the car/amp/speakers always sounded. I might even add a sub (after I get the rack-and-pinion replaced but that's another story).

    Never even occurred to me that I wouldn't be able to play DVD video music discs in the car because of the restriction on playing video while driving. So that's (really) why DVD-A was developed.

    I don't know how I end up so lucky in this life, but I'm happy to say that I am now the proud owner of this 2014 Acura ILX that features the ELS 5.1 DVDA system!
    Oh man, I'm gonna have some fun listening and driving experiences in this automobile!

    Ryan, thats awesome, I love my 2013 ILX for surround so you should be in for some great listening while driving around .
    They upgraded the subwoofer and added better sound proofing from the introductory year that I have so good choice in model year that you bought.

    Has anyone else had the idea of using a Surround Master in a car system? I haven't done it, but after looking over the connections on the rear of the unit, it seems it wouldn't be a hard thing at all to do.
    Give me surround or give me silence!

    2006 Acura RL here. I much prefer the ELS Surround system to the Bose that I have, but I can't complain too much!

    Should work. You would just need a way to convert the vehicle's 12 vdc to 120 vac.
    I had a Tate unit in my vehicle in the 80's and 90's. I had no problems with it. Fosgate actually provided a factory modification for a 12 vdc input.
