How about sharing some of your experiences to date now that you've had two weeks to play around with your new toy. Have the Atmos modules arrived yet?

Inquiring minds (and eyes) want a...

I just completed my third complete Audyssey config, and this time everything came out within the level tolerances I would have expected. I would have gotten there anyway via trial and error, but I...

Thanks, Keith; that was going to be my next move.

The reason I set it lower at first (and then increasingly ever higher) is that (1) I have been using the same amp on the zone 2 pre-outs of my...

Keith,

QS is one of my favorite features of the Denon AVR; I use it more than any other button on my units (as programmed into my universal remote).

I'm providing a copy of my post today in the X7200 thread as it really pertains specifically to the X5200 although will presumably apply equally to both models.

Stuart,

I was trying to make a joke (as in Emma Thompson's absence from the cast of the movie), but your precis of the character's arc is nonetheless illuminating and, again, well written.
