I have the AV8801 currently and I am not happy with the fact that it truncates frequencies above 48 KHz when audyssey xt32 is engaged. I am considering switching to the CX5000 but need to know if YPAO applies the same truncation above 48 kHz. Any insight would be much appreciated.

The Yamaha is capable of 96kHz signals with YPAO engaged. OTOH, 48kHz PCM means a maximum audio frequency ~24kHz and 96kHz PCM means a maximum audio frequency ~48kHz. No change in the audible range either way.

Thanks Kal, is that something YOU would care about when deciding between processors?

So, does Marantz Audyssey XT32 downsample to 48kHZ and YPAO in Yamaha samples to 96KHZ. If I am playing Blu-ray at contains data 24/96KHZ sampling rate would it play at 96kHZ sampling or would it down sample to 48 KHZ like audyssey XT32. Is it similar to Anthem D2V room correction that samples at 96kHz

It is a factor but not a definitive one.

It is a factor but not a definitive one. After all, imho, Audyssey XT32 is superior to YPAO in its corrections.

The CX-A5000 will play it at 24/96 without downsampling.[/quote]

Neither "samples" anything, per se, but both will pass 24/96 using REQ without downsampling.
