I have an AVR and bitstream the audio. That sort of upmix functionality is not important to me. I tend to run stereo content in Neural mode anyway.





It's the same app. Prime Video is just a...

Good to know. My dual-core Samsung loads them pretty fast, though not quite on par with my old PS3.

I just got back from BBY and they were, predictably, worthless. They had the old BDPS-S790 still...

Local Best Buy has both. I'll go try them on the floor and see which one feels snappier. My current player is dual-core and I wouldn't really call it 'fast'...AppleTV and Roku still smoke it for...

Just to confirm, the 5200 and 6200 both support Amazon & Netflix in 1080p with DD+?

I'm also not seeing any definitive proof that the dual-core CPU in the 6200 makes any difference. 4k upscaling...

Which surround mode for PCM 2.0 streaming content?

Some of the older movies or TV I stream through Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, Vudu, etc. come through as PCM 2/0/0 48kHz. What is the best surround mode to use on my AVR? The AVR's "auto" mode always...

It's sufficient, but far from optimal. Try it out and see what you think. Worst case, you buy some Marantz mono-block amps to drive the B&Ws.

Update: tried to resolve this by using an old Marantz RC 2000 remote but the result is the same. Still willing to entertain suggestions.

The MartinLogan Motion6 is about 3.8" deep, and the Motion8 is 5.6" deep. They sound phemomenal with that folded motion tweeter, IMO. Very crisp and intelligible audio.

Thanks for clarifying. I'm more familiar with Audyssey -- clearly YPAO uses some different terms.

More than capable.

2560×1600p75 is the maximum that HDMI 1.3 can output. 1080p60 has been available since HDMI 1.0.

Depends on the construction of said walls and what sort of installation you do. I agree that it is risky.

I'd try the 120 and see how it sounds; if you want more bass, then move it to 160. 120 is the normal LPF of LFE setting. Going higher means you're doubling up on the bass, which might sound weird.

I highly doubt those 2.5" cones can go any lower than 100Hz. The Polk site says:

Total Frequency Response 95Hz-22kHz
Lower -3dB Limit 125 Hz
Upper -3dB Limit 20 kHz


That means your...

If you can, open up the receiver and look for any obvious physical damage like blown caps. If you're under warranty, opening it may void it.

Assume you're talking about the thick 3M VHB foam tape? In that case, yes, it's ridiculously-sticky.
