At this point we have no specific details on these models, nothing has been announced. However, it's safe to assume that all of the general changes from 2016 to 2017 will apply to these models.

I'm sure it will be fine, especially since older Silver surrounds will be dipole which means you are going to be getting a very diffuse surround field. Like you say, it would be more of a concern if...

It seems almost certain that it will have 11 amplified channels, considering the precedent set by the X6300H which is lower level. The big question is whether it can expand to more than 11 processed...

IR commands are pretty consistent year to year. Just use the S920W and then teach the Harmony any commands that are wrong and/or missing.

If they're going to be on/in the wall directly behind your head, you should probably use InWall Bronze Surround for wider dispersion / reduced hot-spotting. I wouldn't want direct firing speakers...

yeah but your preference is for more treble. That's the difference between Flat and Reference, it doesn't roll off the highs. Who cares what it's "supposed to be" used for? It's your setup :)

Ah yes, that was it, the x.x.4 tones phantom rearward, but not forward, when overheads are set to "Height". And the 9.1.6 tones snap to front/rear with no phantom.

Not placebo, DEQ is boosting the low end more than anything so turning it off will make the highs sound more pronounced relatively.
