Man on Fire - good movie. Dakota Fanning was perfect in it. Denzel was pretty good too ;) I haven't seen Equalizer yet but it's on my list.

to add to your dilemma, here's something on Onkyo's Atmos receivers you may not know.

I think he said he connected TM's to preamp outs. But what connections used is only 1 part of the issue. Pioneer has yet to allow all 11 preamp outs at the same time because they limited their...

For David Susilo -

9 decoders is what they have in the AVR and that means all you are going to get from an Atmos or any other track is 9 distinct speaker "channels". It doesn't matter where or...

My original thoughts were parallel to markus, that optimally, bass mgmt 1st then EQ.

Bingo!

HDMI in from a BD player means no bass mgmt on the input. And having the receiver/processor do bass mgmt after the unit means Dirac will have done EQ before re-directed bass is added to the...
