I have a vsx-1015tx-k, and consequently, it has a 5.1 multi-ch-in, with which I could connect something like a gomax electronics CV-505 HDMI switch with 7.1-analog out. (it's a nifty box, it decodes all the standards for the most part and renders them in analog, and can be set for 5.1 or 7.1).
Now, in my 1015 manual, it notes that anything through the multichannel input will not have acoustic EQ settings applied, which means no MCACC established equalization. This is a bit of a letdown, I must say, but none-the-less....
So, what settings ARE applied to the audio through the multi ch in jacks? Do I get the delays setup by MCACC applied to the surrounds? Can I still boost the subwoofer and have it apply?
Basically, I am wondering if it is worth it to get the cv-505 and bring my receiver into the lossless surround age, or if I should sell the unit and get a vsx-1018ah.
