Absolutely ridiculous that Sony dropped lens memory in this projector. Guess I won't be upgrading my 95ES to this model. This is a must have feature for my CIH setup.

Uggh, that's what I was afraid of.
So what is my best option for 7.2.4 using the 5200? Okay for external amp to handle the 4 Atmos height channels? Is that doable in the pre-set assignment template?

Bill,
How do you like your new speakers and overall setup?
I'm looking at buying 4 bipoles for surround use to match up as best I can with JTR T12s.
Klipsch, DEf Tech and JBL are high on my list.
