The thing is, the note in the Denon/Marantz manual about the NeuralX parameter says it's for NON object based mixes. Then it says is can only be used with DTS:X surround modes (native content).

There's a subtle, tricky distinction that confuses a lot of people with this one.

Neural:X is both a SURROUND MODE and also an adjustible PARAMETER available within the DTS:X surround mode.

A room with perfectly cubic dimensions is the worst possible scenario for bass, since the room modes will be the same in all 3 dimensions. That means you will get major peaks and deep nulls all over...

So they must be specifically DTS 2.0? Most stereo soundtracks are Dolby Digital 2.0 or uncompressed PCM stereo.

Denon and Marantz are owned by the same company and are functionally identical in nearly any respect. So it can be assumed any issue like this would be common to both.

No, you should be fine. These older non-network models could only update firmware via serial interface and generally would only have an update if there was a major bug that needed fixing.

You are SOL unfortunately. ARC won't work as it can't pass hi Rez bitstream audio back through.

With a 4k bluray player you'd have dual hdmi outputs to accommodate this but with the Roku4 no dice.
