No, the receiver has no way of knowing that it's happning. As far as the processor is concerned its receiving a 5.1 signal so there is no need to apply upmix processing. It's not the receivers fault...

What's the best way to determine the quality of an AVR upscaler and how it might compare to my 8550? Would disregarding upscaling for an AVR be a bad choice in my current situation? I'm looking at a...

Just a side note to what's already been said but "Straight" mode on Yamaha is not equivalent to Direct mode. It bypasses upmixing and Yamaha DSP enhancements but it doesn't bypass ALL digital...

This is the same problem when they were shipped from Vanns a few years ago. The RC-10's and RC LCR are packed very well with two pieces of thick foam covering the speakers and no damage likely to...

Not to nitpick but it's the C-R3 not the R1 that is the precursor to the RC-R. The R1 is a basic 2-way bipolar with a single woofer and dual opposing tweeters. More like the recent CR-10 (although...

I just can't believe Frys would rather send speaker after speaker and end up with damaged returned inventory than simply correct the problem. Unbelievable.

Spotify Connect has always worked perfectly for me. In fact I find it a bit slicker and more robust overall than AirPlay. My receiver is hard wired.

I actually agree with this too. It would be easier if everyone just had .1 listed since that's more traditional nomenclature convention. And sub count is not really the point of the spreadsheet.

It's definitely a real thing. Too many people have reported it, and it was happening to me too. My X4000 would randomly shut itself off with no apparent cause. I went so far as to literally leave the...

Holy moly. $75 each with free shipping. Quite the score. I don't watch eBay that tightly but it seems like it's only the crummy EAS versions all the time.

If you want to sell those RC-Rs they will go in a flash. Very hot commodity since they aren't being produced anymore, but lots of people snagging 70s and 10s at Frys.

With the current generation Denon / Marantz processors, you can't do a full 13.1 Auro setup since they are limited to 11ch processing. So Auro maxes out at 10.1 (5.1 + 4 heights + overhead VOG).
