That doesn't surprise me that the current presence speaker locations are supported by Yamaha with Dolby Atmos (they'd be fools not to, or at least claim to). However, the DTS folks are making a...

Hmm, I'm actually more interested in DTS:X than Dolby Atmos since from what I have read DTS:X won't require overhead speakers. I currently have an 11.2 setup with front and rear presence speakers and...

With the recent announcement of DTS:X, has there been any word on when, and on which products, Yamaha might offer support for it?

I hadn't seen the transfer program update yet. I'll have to check it out. You are right, I was looking at the UK site. I should have checked the URL more closely.

Well this goes beyond finicky. I believe that what is happening here is by (poor) design. I've previously noticed that the downloaded files are arranged based on the system that they came from, and...

Timothy,

I don't understand the comment about the "Yamaha wireless network adaptor" in the above, as it appears to be related to the CX-A5000. Since the CX-A5000 doesn't provide wireless support...

Just curious, why didn't you run the HDMI from the Oppo to the Yamaha AVR and then to your display? Why use the toslink connection at all?

That's what I thought you may have meant. It never even occurred to me that anyone would try that, even with normal HDMI cables. HDMI is flaky enough w/o adding extra risk such as that.

No, and it's not likely that I ever would. It is really a major job to replace my CX-A5000 as it is in a very complex system arrangement (11.2 channels, 15+ input devices). I never change it without...

I own and use both (in different systems). I can't speak to any multi-zone features since I don't use them (I simply duplicate stuff :) ). There are, however, additional DSP modes in the CX-A5000...

Yeah, I was afraid of that. I was asking for the person I gave my 93 to (I upgraded sometime ago), I thought I'd ask here. Guess I should have checked the online manual.

For hi-res digital out they'd have to do HDMI (and HDCP), not optical or coax, as I understand it. That's one of the few things I'd change if I could about the box. A couple of others are...
