I sit the same distance from the screen as the screen is wide. Seems perfect to me. Very immersive.

Well yes - but we knew that when we bought it of course. My next AVR, this time next year, will have DTS:X of course. There might even be some content for it by then ;)

XT32 is a very significant upgrade to XT. And definitely better, IMO, than MCACC. If I were you I would wait, if you can, for the unit with XT32. XT32 is so good that when Onkyo dropped support for...

Yes I know. But you will be able to when they sort out whatever the problem is. A bug, or some limitation. It doesn't affect me and my 5200 of course. I can use DSU with anything. And by the time I...

The unit with the best room EQ system. In the case of Denon or Yamaha, it's Denon.

I'm not "suggesting" anything. I am telling you that to get a 3dB increase in output you need to double the power of the amp. So if you have a 100 watt amp, you need to go to a 200 watt amp to get a...

+1. If they were complicit, why wait until now? They could have prevented cross pollination easily enough in the past. But PLII has always worked with DTS sources and Neo:X with Dolby sources. Plus,...

They will. This is either an unworked-out bug or a limitation of some sort IMO. They will fix it with a FW update. It seems to only affect Denon/Marantz anyway - I am told Yamaha is not affected. If...

Personally, I doubt that the room will be too 'dead'. If it is for movies only, then there isn't, IMO, a real downside to it being somewhat dead anyway, since all of the required ambience,...

You’d have to be sure that all 9 measurement spots are the same for both the Dirac calibration and the REW measurement for this to be accurate. Even then, differences between the way Dirac works and...

Nice job. I agree with you about putting the heaviest gear at the bottom for stability. Until I revamped my rack recently, my amps were too high in the rack. The rack is on wheels so I can pull it...

Well, if you want to pay good money for features which won't bring any benefit, that's fine. But you can understand the AVR manufacturers not wanting to go down that road I'd think.
