Blu-ray, since it doesn't have a Neo:X decoder. Since you already have 11 speakers, you might want to consider getting the new Denon AVR-4520, which does decode Neo:X and has better room correction than the Z11.
Hello my friend -yes its been a while & much water under my bridge in the last few years!
Tx for the reply - I do get that part then:)
As for getting a new AVR - I will pass for now - the cost of my AVR upgrades in he last ~decade - RX-V1 to RX-Z1 to RX-Z11
has caused a never before experienced level of WAF
- so I will wait until 11.1 discs are as common as 5.1/7.1.
A while ago I did confess to you via PM that I was a speaker whore
- to which you also agreed to for yourself.
I am not so sure I am a discreet channel whore
as well - but that might also be true Question:
When I select fropm the DSP menu to use one of the Yam's audio modes (othe) than the discreet main audio menue ie 5.1, 7.1 etc)
what audio track from the disc does the Yam use to generate the soundfield for the 11.1 speakers?
The "core" 2.1 channel Dolby or 2.1 DTS? or does it take the 5.1/7.1 & use that to generate the 11.1 soundfield?
Again - nice to "see" you.
