There are two subsets of HDMI 2.0. You aren't getting the "good" one (18 Gbit/s) that will support 4k Blu-ray's expected specs. It's the same problem as the Onkyo receivers just released saying they...

Yep. Auro3D "processing" of 11.1 PCM masters rather than using DTS's or Dolby's lossless codecs in a by-the-numbers channel-based configuration is not truly necessary. You could have an 11.1...

T4 was a very poor example of Atmos' capabilities. Gravity is up next. As long as they don't monkey with the theatrical mix... it's spectacular and one of the best Atmos tracks thus far.
