I am new to the HT-S790 but enjoying it very much. I am curious to what listening modes you use for the following
Listening to CD's
Watching DVD movies non-HD
Watching DVD movies in HD
Watching normal TV shows
Watching sports such as football
1. Analog Multichannel with SACD hi-rez; digital dts hi-rez multichannel; Stereo, PLIIx-Music, Neo:6 music, All Channel Stereo, Unplugged, Studio Mix.
2. dts when available, when not available DD, PLIIx is a last choice.
3. same as#3
4. All Channel Stereo, TV Logic
5. Stereo, All Channel Stereo--try both of the PLIIx settings for stadium sound, too. They may be surprisingly effective.
Retired twice, back at work again...but still attempting to age disgracefully!
