d_c it sounds like the amps should be in my hands by the end of the week. In all seriousness, the Crest cc5500's amps that I am currently using to power the 8 Othorns are performing so incredibly...

X-Men Apocalypse has made it's way to Red Box and WOW, WOW, WOW, this movie is so much more enjoyable at home than it was at theaters. I thought the film was OK at the theaters, but having a great...

not exactly what I want to hear

Thanks for the info! It seems that hdmi 2.0 and hdr really muddied the waters. If a new power supply is also required, then it stands to reason that it is best to wait to get a trinnov until the...

Theory proved correct

OK, it turns out it was a setting after all. I tested out different settings on the Marrantz today with American Sniper as the guinea pig. This is what I found out:

Atmos will attempt to fill the...

High SPL

You do realize Peter that I am likely one of the highest SPL seekers on this forum right? High SPL capability of surround speakers is an absolute must in my home theater.

Screen size

Very nice Peter! It appears that there is at least 6" on either side of that screen though. Make the screen bigger :)

American Sniper

I popped in American Sniper to test and I even have width channel sound with that movie on the Marrantz with atmos. Nothing else is running. Just the wides.

Speakers

Having a plan ahead of time is important, and right now I don't have speakers lined up and ready to take advantage of what the trinnov offers. If I go Trinnov, I am going to do 10 heights, and it...

I was not aware of the limit of 10 overhead speakers on the trinnov. This is news to me, but it is very good to know. Thank you! This means that a 16-32 would be overkill in my application, and that...

If this offered atmos in 9.2.6 this would be a tempting piece, even without room correction. One can always purchase a minidsp 88a with dirac if room correction is necessary.

The appeal of the Trinnov to me is the ability to run Dolby Atmos in 9.2.6, up to 9.2.21 with the the Altitude 16-32. I have purchased a Marrantz 8802a that is limited to 7.2.4 or 9.2.2. There is...

It is more of a function that it isn't wise to try to level match speakers and subs when getting around 130 db. But yes, there is no question that I like bass. I purchased a lot of subs that couple,...

I am not boosting bass - just coupling of sbs making spl levels escalate. I have 12 extremely efficient subs, including 8 othorns that will be able to achieve 150 db or close to it at 30 hz from...
