I really haven't had a chance to go through other discs yet, so this may be an issue related to me needing to set all speakers to small.
I watched the TFE blu the other day, using the UPCM audio out the analog jacks to get 5.1 sound, as we all know using the TrueHD I just get two channels which sucks.
Anyway that was my first time trying the 5000 using the analog outs, as my Sunfire Pre has 8 channel (7.1) analog inputs. Overall it sounded good, but when it got into intense scenes, like some of the firefights/explosions, the outputs would sharp kinda chatter noises, like the peaks were clipping off or something. Hell with the dynamics the new HD movies can have, they sure shouldn't be clipping on us like that. I know the Sunfire can handle dynamic content, as with normal DD stuff, it can rumble the floors!
So maybe I need to set the speakers to small, which sorta bites with the capabilities of my speakers, but if it stops the chatter on UPCM stuff that would be nice.
Overall I like the 5000, but 2-channel when watching movies just isn't going to cut it. So I am praying they fix it...
