Does anyone know if the SC-25 can pass an HDMI signal greater than 1080P? Will 3D or 4K signals pass through correctly?

I don't think so... I do not recall the circuitry, but I think the buffers do not have the bandwidth. That said, this question has come up before, so you might search this thread. The 25/27 predate 4K by quite a bit so there may not be a lot of info.

a few questions regarding the sc-25

1.) just so that I can test it out, which mode can I use in order to get 2.1 , so that I can test with music

2.) Because of the 24 bit limitations on flac on the receiver, I used plex on my ps3 to play 24 bit flac files, however, I noticed a difference in volume and quality. Music to me, sounds better and louder (at the same volume level) when playing it through the receivers HMG. is this normal? From what I remember they were both in stereo mode. However, when using plex, it shows as Stereo on the display, but not when in HMG, as that shows the title of the song. But i do see only the 2 front channels lit up on the top left hand side of the receivers screen.

1) Stereo.

2) I don't use HMG but seems clear the signal is being processed differently, like different EQ settings. Check the manual.

Thanks, thing is, and maybe I need to double check this, stereo doesnt use my sub, I thought stereo is 2.0 only?

Hmmm... I am honestly not sure at this point and no longer have the SC-27 in my system. I did not use the sub output after some initial testing (used an external crossover) but I thought stereo still used bass management. The manual should say or hopefully someone will chime in.

Go into "System Setup/Manual SP Setup/Speaker Setting/SW" and set the subwoofer to "PLUS" and it will play with a stereo signal. You may or may not like it though.

Thanks , I was just coming back to post the same thing, I was able to find the answer last night, havent tested it though, I have to agree, I most likely will not like it, but wanted to try it out for fun.

If u like bass in your music the PLUS will be nice if your subwoofer is great u will see a difference i dont use the plus in my setup as use my SC27 for my theather room and it becomes to boommy in there. But music is nice with it for me

Got another question, do you know what mode the receiver is in when streaming network audio?
I dont see anything on the screen. is it in "Direct" Mode?

Just to add, all I see on the screen is Digital and S.RTRV and at the bottom left Stereo and SP->A
