If you have XT32 there is no reason to twiddle with the phase knobs because it will equalize time delays for the two subs.

I'm not sure the current Denon 5200 can't already do that. In theory it should be possible. Unfortunately that won't work with Dolby Surround up mixer (which doesn't output to wides as implemented)...

Main zone and zone 2 have separate power on/off controls. So just make sure to shut zone 2 off when you are done and only power on main zone when you start up.

On the zone control part of the...

As an FYI, it you need to clamp down on volume in the meantime (eg late night listening) with Dolby digital tracks there is a DRC feature (dynamic range compression) which automatically restricts the...

The 4520 is only outdated if you want Atmos. See a few posts above yours where we were just discussing this.

If it says "run audyssey" that means your calibration got erased. You can't use DEQ/DV without first completing calibration. So somehow you need to get a mic and recalibrate.

You are confused on several fronts.

1. Your 2311CI does NOT have Dolby Volume. It has Audyssey Dynamic Volume (Dolby Volume is a similar, competitor product from Dolby).

2. You do NOT have to...

Unfortunately it's not possible. Even if your receiver had an RCA analog output (it doesn't) the vast majority of receivers do NOT downsample digital audio inputs to analog output.

I'm pretty sure he's referring to the "secret" extra AUX inputs that custom installers can use.

If you look for example at the 4520CI serial protocol document there are extra codes available for...

That's the whole point of "the rocket". It allows you to run Audyssey with close-to-proper support for free.

That said, a couple of points:

1) the "use it once and put it away forever" idea...

Selden has already given great responses, but just to be clear, it's important to understand the difference between mastering techniques vs. codecs vs. upmixing.

It wasn't a blurb, it was idle speculation by a poster based on hearsay from somebody (a dealer?) he had spoken with. So I would treat that the same as any other internet rumor.

You need output in a room of your volume. A port allows for "cheap" extra output over a comparably priced sealed sub, so I would say so. It's not hard and fast -- I'm sure there are some awesome...
