Thanks for the explanation. Did I understand correctly we are talking about 3 different mixes?
1. Commercial theater Atmos
2. Commercial theater PCM 5.1
3. Blu-ray DTS 5.1

Curious about number 2: It is neither Dolby or DTS, since there is no need to use either of those lossless packing technologies for commercial theater systems? It's just called PCM 5.1?

Number 2 and 3 are the same mix (2 is uncompressed, 3 is losslessly packed to take up less room on the Blu-ray). Like if you ripped a CD to FLAC. It's not a different mix, the data is just packed more efficiently to take up less space on your hard drive.

Correct, commercial cinema hard drives don't have the space restrictions that Blu-ray discs do, so they don't need compression or packing to save storage space. The uncompressed PCM tracks are typically stored as .wav files.

Thanks Sanjay. Do you happen to know who makes the Atmos decoder preamp/processor for commercial theaters? Just curious.

What's the range for speaker trim levels on the Cinema Rhapsody? Denon has +/-12dB.
How's the sound in movies if compare to those Japanese brand?

it seems my mode "Direct 2.0" is set to output (for stereo sources) to Left, Right and the Sub.
On my previous ADA, only Stereo engaged the sub and I prefer it this way.
Besides setting the speakers to "none" which effects all modes, is there a way to get "Direct 2.0" to be true its zero?

thanks!

oh dear, I was the last one in here and over a year ago. oh well here goes.

My CRM4B has stopped responding to IR commands and IP commands. I have to use the front panel, which is in another room.
Have unplugged but no dice.
Anyone have anything similar or ideas for getting it playing again?

If you have already tried a hard reboot and it has not worked you are probably going to need to send it in for repair.

No control sounds like a board problem

I know it sounds great and looks great.....but can we communicate with it? If not it is useless:)

I emailed ADA.
Chap there responded within minutes to 3-4 emails, including sending me the manual and explained a setting to change, and hey presto! working.
Great customer service!

Wow, within minutes? Unfortunately, if they owe you hardware or money, you won't get a peep out of them.
