Thanks for that feedback. I think I'm going to stick with this "least compromise for both seats" going forward.

Current owners of the 2015 Denon AVR's have verified this combination (i.e., applying DSU to a DTS signal sent to the AVR as PCM).

You must be right judging from the manufacturer's specs for that Antec VERIS fan: only 5.5CFM on low and 8.0CFM on high (cf. the typical bathroom ventilation fan rated at 80 to 100CFM). The...

I don't follow the Yammie news, but that sounds interesting. You mean they will update their upper-tier 2015 units (RX-A1050, RX-A2050 and RX-A3050) with DTS:X but leave them with just Neo:6...
