^ The new cars not so much. But my cable TV provider seems to compress the dynamic range of all audio to a certain extent, which is a pity.

If you want less than maximum dynamic range (which you seemed to be asking for) then Adaptive DRC will do that. I never use it, but I watch movies in a dedicated room and don't have to worry about...

It's new from when they added support for 444 chroma with 4K60p video. You have to enable the new feature by switching to HDMI 4K mode 1. The default is mode 2 and will not output 444. I suppose they...

Only the 3040 now supports a Pure Direct path for DSD input where it goes straight to the DACs and bypasses DSP processing. The 2040 and lower models have to use the DSPs to decode DSD to PCM.

That's exactly why Mercedes should not have pitted under the safety car. That was their main mistake. They needed to keep the lead.

But for anyone who hasn't used that graph that plots all the lap...
