-40db: ON/AUTO = 61W; OFF = 95W
-20db: ON = 61W; AUTO/OFF = 95W

If the 'secondary' unit allows for a MV setting to be set at startup, it would also be a good idea to enable this and set it to 0dB, otherwise every time it powers down and then back up, the MV will...

I thought his Killawatt readings showed the same power usage with ECO on or off?

Which podcast was that?

Consider: do you think that having 9 speakers around you and only 2 above you would be better than the more balanced 7 around you and 4 above you?

It's only new software because of the need to incorporate processing to allow for the Atmos notch filter when using Atmos-enabled speakers. Non-Atmos AVRs don't need that of course. So while...

IDK TBH. I think that for smallish HTs, anything more than 4 overhead speakers isn't really needed. For big, 2 row HTs maybe 6 would work well. 9.1.4 would be popular I think.

Sure - I know these series are highly regarded and very well made (I have seen episodes of most of them). It's just that I don't want to devote 20 hours to a single story or program.
