It depends what your questions are. Quite a lot of what we can expect in September is known already and some is still uncertain.

Indeed. But what do you think it has to do with past warranty claims?

Pavlov alert!!!!!!

Did you not know that Onkyo dropped Audyssey in favor of AccuEQ because of limitations with their CPU? It could process Atmos or Audyssey but not both. AccuEQ demands less...

Yes, AccuEQ is dire. Great pity for Onkyo fans. I am having to switch to Denon when I go Atmos this fall. Not that Denon are bad or anything, but it's a new learning curve when you've been an Onkyo...

You make good points. I think the issue with the bass management has been explained a couple of times in this thread. Clearly, those with a single sub will not really care - until they acquire a...

I know just what you mean.

Mark can be 'distracted' sometimes. Just keep plugging away. Seaton Sound is a small company and doesn’t have an army of administrators and staff, which is probably...

Agreed. I should have said "works as intended" not "right". Of course, Emo will say that their form of BM also works "as intended".

Nonetheless, I still hold that XT32/Sub-EQ HT is still a...

I'm sure you are right. The Atmos speakers I heard were "prototypes". They didn't appear to be anything special but they could have been $5,000 each for all I know (I doubt they were but it's...

Of course the content is the most important thing. But it is an apples/oranges comparison, in the context of this thread, to compare a non-Atmos movie with an Atmos movie IMO. I'd 100% agree that...

XT32 is still King IMO. And Pro certainly does no harm of course, but at $700 it doesn't seem all that good value to me. Mine cost me close on $1,000 with carriage to the UK and import taxes and, on...

It's true but kinda irrelevant. The real comparison would be how an Atmos version of Casablanca compared with an Atmos version of Transformers. Some would prefer one movie, some the other.

True - but DBA is pretty specialised case, Igor, I think. Beyond what Audyssey was ever intended to do.

Wow. Thanks for that. The comparison lower down the page with XT32 in the Denon is instructive. Just look at the difference XT32 makes compared with AccuEQ.

Yes, I agree. It would be much better if Audyssey measured the combined response of the mains and subs and took that into consideration. But for many, the Sub Distance Tweak is fairly easily done (so...

Another good point. But if the AVR is THX-spec then it has THX Loudness Plus which can be used as a good alternative to DEQ.

It doesn't seem that a single mic position will give as good a...
