The Phono input (which you don't have) includes a phono pre-amp. So when you have your own pre-amp you would never use the Phono input even if you had one. Just connect your pre-amp output to any of...

I don't use the movie DSP modes, but I leave extended surround set to PLIIx, so that 5.1 movies get expanded to 7.1.

It's pretty poor design by Yamaha, as other brands let you choose the position of the volume display. Normally you would at least have the choice of turning it off completely, but IIRC the 667 model...

The audio lag with processing enabled will be more than Pure Direct mode. I don't know the exact value, but I doubt you have a faulty receiver.

If you're saying the sound is already delayed too much, then changing the audio delay setting in the receiver won't help (it can't go less than 0). But start by setting a manual lipsync delay of 0ms...

I was thinking the same thing, but with a 5.1.2 receiver you need one set as 7.1.0 in order to get surround backs. Then the other in 5.1.2 will only give you two height speakers for a total of 7.1.2....

Good riddance to Maldonado, but Magnusson only scored 55 points to Jenson's 126 in 2014. "Frequently matching and beating" is a stretch.

The 2050 can do 9.2 (e.g. Atmos 5.1.4). Also the 1050 is best described as 7.1 since both SW outputs are identical.
