We already knew that DTS:X won’t run on the Onkyo chipset so not really a shattering revelation there.

Al - I swear we will have the Enterprise's Holodeck in our HTs before you finally make the jump!! :)

Terminator Salvation.


Wow! This movie really lends itself to DSU. Almost constant use of the overhead speakers, plus a really good mix to begin with. Highly recommended as a DSU demo.

The announcement has already been made via DTS. The 7200 is the only Denon that is getting a DTS:X upgrade. Why people seem to be waiting for divine intervention is beyond me.

Then my work here is done. I have spent 1,200 dollars of your money :) Always a good feeling :)

And yes, DSU is fabulous on almost any movie I have used it with.

The 5200 is a great AVR. I have one and I like it very much. If you are happy that it is very unlikely to be upgradeable to DTS:X (I'd say no chance at all but then people jump on me) then go ahead -...

For Atmos? See you already replied to Sanjay. Well yeah. In the days when we had no specific height channels, that would have been the standard advice. But things have moved on.

It's not really about convenience. When we had no overhead speakers, the sole way to get any sort of 'height' dimension to the sound was to raise the surround speakers. This was a complete compromise...

The issue is really with leather chairs. If you keep 12 inches away from the chair back you should be good to go in your case.
