I think the prices are wrong, which is crazy. I believe the B6 and C6 65-inch are supposed to be the same price, $4999 and the E6 is $5999 (price listed on retailers sites). So you for 1k more you...

Have you tried another DLNA client? It'd be interesting to see if you saw the same thing on another client as you do the AVR. Maybe try VLC? Sounds to me like a library issue on the Windows side,...

I thought Extra bass was for non-LFE sources and if you were watching something with LFE, you just used sub trim to increase the bass proportionate to the rest of the volume?

Didn't look any worse either. My point is you never know where the weak link is, might as well address every one you reasonably can.

What could possibly be a reasonable objection to installing in-ceiling speakers -- assuming it's possible?

Selecting ATMOS on the movie when the AVR doesn't support it, just results in Dolby TrueHD. Watched GoT Season 5 before I got my new AVR and didn't have a problem with the TrueHD sound when selecting...

The source sound track only has a single LFE track, no matter how many outputs the AVR has on it. So from a source standpoint, there is no such thing as 5.2.4. Obviously with multiple outputs and y...

Wether you have 7 speakers all up front using virtual surround, or 3 up front and 4 around back, you still have 7 speakers with 7 wires.

You can probably use both, just not at the same time. Many AVRs make it easy to switch between 7.1.2 and 5.1.4. So you'd wire up 7.1.4 and then switch your speaker configuration based on the source...

I rent more movies than I buy so my choice is compressed Atmos via Vudu or compressed AC3 on Blu-ray via Netflix (Lionsgate). So yeah, Atmos via DD+ is easily preferred to plain old DD.

I use Nueral:X all the time too, but when you toggle through the modes, it is displayed on the screen. No need to see the front of the AVR.
