Any other processors that do 11.1, xt32 and Audyssey Neo:x?
The Yamaha does there own DSP's for 11 channel and I find it sounds quite good IMO (I own the Expendables 2 Blue Ray). The only pre-amp I am aware of that may do all that you ask is the Marantz 8801 but even then I am not sure if it has NEO:X capability but it might. Please bear in mind that there are very few 11.1 encoded Blue Ray Movies on the market and the standard at the moment is 7.1 so It may take a bit for the market to implement true 11 Channel encoded receivers/preamps. BTW Yamaha uses YPAO for its speaker setup and calibration while Marantz uses Audyssey. There are various opinions on both but I believe in auditioning your equipment and getting what sounds good to YOU. I personally like YPAO over Audyssey after listning to both pretty thoroughly in a well designed and acustically treated environment but again that is MY opinion.
