It's the paint that is curing. Most likely, they were wrapped for shipment shortly after being finished and never had time to fully cure. Then they are enclosed in a sealed box wrapped in foam for...

I use a mix of cables in my system. AQ, Monoprice, and I'm testing an Atlona HDBaseT setup to my projector from the 8802 using a cat6 cable from Monoprice. It passes a 4k signal where the Monoprice...

I actually like the unfold trailer. It's always a hit in my room (limited sample size though at this point). Trailers are fun, but I like actual movie content to highlight the speakers. In fact, the...

Noah,

There may be some licensing issues with the various formats and how they are implemented. I don't know that for sure, but companies generally don't want to make things harder for their...

They actually have some discs out with studio support. How many Auro3D titles can you think of here in the US?

DTS fought hard on Blu-ray and I assume they will do the same with DTS:X, which leads...

Yes, you can do that. The only downside is that each the dual subs will be handled differently by Audyssey, which may be a big deal depending on your room. This is the fun of being on the forefront...

I assume that would be a possibility but it's not in any way speedy. I did a backup save once I calibrated with Audyssey Pro and it took a long time to backup (about 10 minutes or so)...I'm not sure...

No. Any time you change your speaker configuration, you will need to re-run Audyssey. By changing your "top front" speakers to "front height" means you changed the speaker config, which will disable...

I have an 8802 in for review. Trust me when I say you have to choose one format or the other. To switch between the two isn't as simple as you are making it sound. It's a multi-step process requiring...

Sure you could, but if you use Audyssey, how will it handle it? Also, you can't remap speakers between Atmos and Auro3D...you have to choose one or the other. This isn't Marantz's fault...it's how it...

I'm thinking it will take 7-10 days including shipping for these upgrades to be made. I'd wouldn't be surprised if it's shorter than that either.
