Dunno why I continue to use bitstream vs PCM. Must be the reassuring DTS-MA or Dolby TrueHD display on my processor. PCM just looks so pedestrian ...

Well, there are definitely some trade-offs. What happens if your Bluray only outputs 5.1 but you use 7.1 from your receiver? With the MiniDSP, the 5.1 decoding occurs on the Bluray player and then passes all the way through your preamp and out to your speakers. Soon after I started watching Gravity, which I was looking forward to due to reviews of the sound quality, I noticed the rear speakers weren't working. I paused the movie and noticed that Gravity had only been encoded for 5.1. So then I had to go into the NanoAVR and setup a second preset, one for 5.1 tracks and one for native 7.1. The 5.1 sends the side signals to the rear as well. So now I have to check if the rear speakers are playing and switch to the appropriate preset as needed. Like I said, the NanoAVR isn't perfect but is powerful for the price.

As Joe was saying, they were running dual amps on a 15amp outlet full force. I am curious if the industry is going to dsp amps.
I also ask a few questions about the inuke with carp. And after watching a few videos about the inukes dsp. I really like that one can do changes on the fly. So that you can hear how it affects the sound.

Hey guys,

I'm also starting to tweak the bass with the PEQ function on the Inuke. It works great too, so that's another option. Using PEQ in combination with the dynamic EQ gives some great results.

I highly recommend having easy access to changing the EQ in the inuke. I like to use a "dummy" laptop that uses Remote Desktop to control my PC in the other room where my minidsp is plugged into.

Of course, you could also just connect the inuke directly into a laptop. When my projector is on I'll just use a different remote keyboard and mouse to control the inuke.
