I'm still pretty new to my AV8801, but I wasn't aware that it ever showed the bitstream information in the porthole display. On mine it only shows that information on the larger display behind the...

Hard to believe the solution may be that simple. Like you, I like to see what the processor is decoding and that's why it ultimately matters to me. Before I reset mine I'll wait a bit and see what...

Yeah, it is an extremely frustrating problem to have given the cost of the equipment. So you're saying this is an Oppo/Marantz only problem? That's even more infuriating. I have considered the...

I generally use Audyssey Flat for everything. The LR option is good, but I like Flat because it tames my Motion 60s. They are explosive speakers dynamically and I am in a fairly small room so Flat...

Without room correction I would give the surround trophy to the Yamaha. However, with XT32 engaged vs YPAO it is no contest. The AV8801 all the way. Muscially I would declare the Marantz the...

I was meaning to refer to the Atmos enabled speakers that reflect sound off of the ceiling. Andrew Jones has even stated that ceiling fans can pose a problem for those style speakers. I have no...

Lived at the Pearl in Doha for a while back in 2010 and commuted to Ras Laffan. Nice place (or at least it was). As for the amp vs AVR debate, well, the Klipsch are so incredibly efficient I have...

I would be happy to give you my initial impressions of the MRX / ML combo. First off, let me say that the Anthem is not nearly as bright or edgy as my Pioneer Elite SC-75 was. With the Motions it...

That's what I meant. No real reason to talk about the theoretical cable limit because there isn't a workaround to the imposed standard. ;)

You can, of course. Would I? That really depends on if it will help or hurt. You don't want the towers to create interference with the sub. The safest best is to cross them over at 80hz (per THX...

DTS-HD Master Audio also contains a legacy DTS track for compatibility. I assure you there is not enough bandwidth to support lossless multichannel on the coax/SPDIF input.

Ouch! "a couple of years"? Hope that is negotiable. Depending on your room, XT32 may or may not give you a big leg up in performance. XT32 is great if you have a difficult room due to shape or...
