Audyssey would say it's not OK -- the tonal adjustments of DEQ are necessary to keep the balance consistent as DV is lowering the volume. However, some folks find the bass boost in DEQ sort of...

No, the receiver has no way of knowing that it's happning. As far as the processor is concerned its receiving a 5.1 signal so there is no need to apply upmix processing. It's not the receivers fault...

Just a side note to what's already been said but "Straight" mode on Yamaha is not equivalent to Direct mode. It bypasses upmixing and Yamaha DSP enhancements but it doesn't bypass ALL digital...

Not to nitpick but it's the C-R3 not the R1 that is the precursor to the RC-R. The R1 is a basic 2-way bipolar with a single woofer and dual opposing tweeters. More like the recent CR-10 (although...

I just can't believe Frys would rather send speaker after speaker and end up with damaged returned inventory than simply correct the problem. Unbelievable.

Spotify Connect has always worked perfectly for me. In fact I find it a bit slicker and more robust overall than AirPlay. My receiver is hard wired.

I actually agree with this too. It would be easier if everyone just had .1 listed since that's more traditional nomenclature convention. And sub count is not really the point of the spreadsheet.

Holy moly. $75 each with free shipping. Quite the score. I don't watch eBay that tightly but it seems like it's only the crummy EAS versions all the time.

If you want to sell those RC-Rs they will go in a flash. Very hot commodity since they aren't being produced anymore, but lots of people snagging 70s and 10s at Frys.

With the current generation Denon / Marantz processors, you can't do a full 13.1 Auro setup since they are limited to 11ch processing. So Auro maxes out at 10.1 (5.1 + 4 heights + overhead VOG).
