Which surround mode for PCM 2.0 streaming content?

Some of the older movies or TV I stream through Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, Vudu, etc. come through as PCM 2/0/0 48kHz. What is the best surround mode to use on my AVR? The AVR's "auto" mode always...

It's sufficient, but far from optimal. Try it out and see what you think. Worst case, you buy some Marantz mono-block amps to drive the B&Ws.

Update: tried to resolve this by using an old Marantz RC 2000 remote but the result is the same. Still willing to entertain suggestions.

The MartinLogan Motion6 is about 3.8" deep, and the Motion8 is 5.6" deep. They sound phemomenal with that folded motion tweeter, IMO. Very crisp and intelligible audio.

Thanks for clarifying. I'm more familiar with Audyssey -- clearly YPAO uses some different terms.

More than capable.

2560×1600p75 is the maximum that HDMI 1.3 can output. 1080p60 has been available since HDMI 1.0.

I'd try the 120 and see how it sounds; if you want more bass, then move it to 160. 120 is the normal LPF of LFE setting. Going higher means you're doubling up on the bass, which might sound weird.

I highly doubt those 2.5" cones can go any lower than 100Hz. The Polk site says:

Total Frequency Response 95Hz-22kHz
Lower -3dB Limit 125 Hz
Upper -3dB Limit 20 kHz


That means your...

If you can, open up the receiver and look for any obvious physical damage like blown caps. If you're under warranty, opening it may void it.

Very handsome wood finish on those speakers. Particularly attractive on the subwoofer.

If you have kids, I would put the speaker grilles on.
