Yes, that's how it works. Tap-tap-tap for small (0.5dB increment) changes, and if you hold it down it kicks into higher velocity mode. The key is to develop the "feel" for when it kicks in so you...

No, the X4100 is 9ch max simulaneous. You can connect and EQ up to 13 speakers but only 9 can be active at a time. The active speakers (beyond the "core" 5.1 layout) will change depending on the...

My bad, yes, I forgot the 7702 is basically the pre/pro version of the 7009 which is based on the same platform as the X4100, not the 5200.

No, the 7702 is basically the prepro version of the Denon 5200, whereas the 8802 is the sister model to the Denon 7200.
