I'm getting deja vu....... :p

Brother, if you're paying all that cash for an Altitude 32, why would you NOT try to use it?

From that list the Denon X6200W is probably the best value, since it is beefier and more powerful than the lower level Marantz 6011 (important if you will be using internal amps for all 9 channels)...

BT is the opposite of HiFi, it's fairly compressed and lossy. Especially if you are thinking of hi-rez services like Tidal.

Check out the Denon HEOS Link or equivalent Sonos product. Or do it...

The "in line with the front L/R speakers" is not an ironclad rule, just a suggestion from the Atmos guide. In the actual cinema, the overhead arrays are actually lined up in between the L/R screen...

To add to the responses above, you will hear very little (if any) difference between DSU and PLIIx in upmixing a 5.1 signal to 7.1 to use your back surrounds. This is a pretty simple process since...

I think your best bet would be to use external amplification if you wanted to use the 88A for Dirac EQ.

I wouldn't do it. I'm not sure I understand why you can't just leave it on a normal amp assign and use PURE DIRECT mode for stereo listening?

Hmm, now I'm wondering if everything is fine and you just selected a wrong surround mode (e.g. Audyssey DSX).

Play some program content (5.1 or 7.1 material) and then select Dolby Surround or...

It looks correct to me :confused:

You're sure everything is wired correctly? And you're sure you're only getting 7ch output with Atmos/DTS:X material?

I would think the slight height difference is less important than gaining a wider soundstage, but you should let your ears decide. Play some good 2ch music you are familiar with in stereo mode and...

I would definitely raise the front three to 80Hz, but I wouldn't lower the...

That's still not normal behavior though IMO. I change surround modes all the time and it doesn't affect the Audyssey settings.
