Most folks don't have a wide enough room to bother with front wides so it's a bit pointless. I tried them I my previous house and liked them but my current house isn't suitable for then.

Noise reduction imo wont benefit from upconverting to 4:4:4 colour encoding, if anything upconverting to 4:4:4 may increase noise.

Official OPPO BDP-83 Owner's Thread [technical talk only]

Sounds like the mp3 files are very low quality, especially if they are from a decade ago when storage space was a much bigger issue than today.

I did try quite hard to eliminate levels being a factor, I even used my SPL meter to even things out. lpcm just sounds "flatter" and less dynamic to me than when its decoded by my Denon 4311ci.

After testing the streaming of the various HD codecs against LPCM conversion on the player, I've come to the conclusion that bitstreaming the codecs definitely sounds better.
