Me too. Seriously interested. I don't want extra A-D-A conversion and prefer not to have downsampling. If this DLA version has bass mgmt, it's a pretty tempting alternative to the 88A and existing...

The DLA version with analog outs seems a much better choice than the DL re bass management issue. Is it safe to assume bass mgmt is included since it has analog outs? Their website doesn't have info...

Plus agreed on all your subsequent points...phase, amplitude, time alignment of speakers with each other...all would be altered to some degree by doing bass mgmt after EQ. Even as a...

Bingo!

HDMI in from a BD player means no bass mgmt on the input. And having the receiver/processor do bass mgmt after the unit means Dirac will have done EQ before re-directed bass is added to the...

To copy what jd said, both work just fine with 4 ohm speakers or mixed impedance speakers.
Both are flagship receivers with robust amps. Pioneer's are class D, while Denon uses class A/B amps.

Not defending Emotiva but maybe issues like this have hampered their efforts to get Dirac on their XMC. A Dirac issue or miniDSP implementation issue?

Originally, it was your post referencing the LFE (.1) channel possibly getting boosted by the miniDSP by 10 dB. Then I correctly pointed out that AVR's have the ability to cut...

I think that's correct so IF the miniDSP applies the boost on the subwoofer input, he's right that redirected bass will also be boosted. Seems like a problematic way to do things on the part of...

sounds like a valid issue since most processors & AVR's will apply the boost. Wonder if this has come up with miniDSP tech support & if they anticipated and put in a menu option for LFE.

If it's XPA, then the RCA 2 volt output is...
