If by 'other' you mean Auro, well, that will never be an issue here ;) DTS:X can, apparently, be happy with the Atmos layout. If you sometimes want to use Neo:X or DSX etc then I agree with you -...

Yep. And some of us are configured for FH+TM, with the FH speakers in the TF position but labelled as FH. Works really well here. Lots of possibilities.

Again, those links go to the wrong place. If you use the method I just described, you are using the post's unique ID which is why it always works properly.

You probably don't have the posts-per-page set to the default of 30.

The most reliable way to link to a specific post is to use the POST command.

The SR7009 has Audyssey's XT32 room EQ/correction, which is vastly superior to Onkyo's AccuEQ. On that basis alone the sound quality you can expect from the Marantz will be significantly better than...

I'd be interested in how that works out, Mark. I tried the exact same component, IIRC, with the Darblett and it wouldn’t work. Might be different of course for the 5100. I don't need an extender with...

I will update DLCT though and the 88A utility - just not the firmware. I like the enhancements to DLCT.

With YPAO can you selectively turn off EQ for individual channels? With Audyssey it's all or nothing - EQ is either on (for all channels) or off (for all channels). Now that I have the 88A I may...

Mine has arrived and is installed. My handshaking issues have been solved to my satisfaction, so the 5100CIE was a worthwhile investment for me.
