My processor was recently upgraded to have both PLIIx,z and Neo:X. Right now I have a 7.1 system and am only interested in the comparison of PLIIx and Neo:X to expand to 7.1. Google did not turn up any information comparing PLIIx to Neo:X. Anybody have any details?

You haven't compared them in your own system to see which one you prefer?

To the best of my knowledge I have not made a serious comparison smile.gif.

I would like to get some preliminary information before doing what what could become tedious exercises. I have read your excellent comments on PLIIx vs. Neo:6 and was looking for something similar. No use reinventing the wheel.

Listening to your own system shouldn't be tedious. Simply switch modes using the remote. That's how I was able to find differences between PLIIx and Neo:6. Don't be afraid to give it a try, nothing bad will happen.

I will triple the reply of try it yourself, no matter what others tell you sound is in the ear of the beholder! And you are the beholder! That being said I prefer PL-IIx..with THX thrown over it.

Totally subjective. I prefer no extra DSP and most of the time let my AVR select based on the signal received. Not many 7.1 mixes out but boy I love em when they do come around! Really make a big difference, the ones I have played. I do occasionally try the PLIIx and for awhile tried out the PLIIz with some front heights. For my setup the Heights did not do much. The PLIIx is okay but not the same as a real 7.1 mix. Really try them all for yourself isn't that why you have all those bells and whistles?

Most of them will give you the choice between Neo:X and PLIIx, which is what the thread is about (most receivers probably default to PLIIx in a 7.1 setup with no 7.1 signal present.) Yeah, 7.1 mixes are preferred, but the fact that most sources aren't 7.1 is why PLIIx and the other DSPs exist.

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!
