I checked for you. I didn’t get the problem here. I would do what others have suggested and project temporarily onto a white bedsheet or a big piece of white card and see if the problem goes away. If...

Yes but a comparison with one using Audyssey and the other not isn't a fair comparison and may influence unfairly my perception of Auro.

If Denon would just make a simple FW change so that both...

I don't think we should let this notion about 12 foot ceilings etc take root. Dolby have said all along that Atmos will work with typical ceiling heights of 8 feet.

Another you might like is Joe, with Nicolas Cage in what must be his best performance for years.

I usually watch a dozen Hitchcock's a year. I never tire of them.

In that case, Selden, you should like one of my own favorite guilty pleasures: Burlesque. Eye candy is gloriously high, music is great, dancing is great. Acting, bar Stanley Tucci, is execrable.
