Yes, I think your original point was well made. Zones 2 and 3 are like 'units within a unit' and if left powered on are, in fact, powered on. So it's no surprise that a unit would get warm after 48...

Choose speakers for the ceiling the same way you’d choose speakers for anywhere else - but for Atmos try to get speakers with a wide dispersion pattern.

Bass management simply means handing off...

IKWYM but I think Selden's point was that when Zone 2 or Zone 3 are switched on, then they have amps dedicated to them, so leaving those zones switched on was why the OP's unit got hot while he was...

None whatsoever. It would need a new hardware chip with more processing power.

I’d love to see their frequency response graphs and polar responses etc - at that price those measurements must be something very special.

That "in the movie" feeling is exactly right. When I watched Jurassic Park - The Lost World last night that is precisely what I felt. DSU has, so far, exceeded my expectations.

Good eh? I am about to watch 300 Rise of an Empire, in DSU, which was originally mixed in Atmos. It will be interesting to compare how DSU handles this Atmos-mixed movie vs last night's Jurassic...

Audyssey does not touch LPF of LFE.

It is odd that you notice the difference as most music does not have any content at all in the LFE channel. Also, changing the setting from 80Hz to 120Hz will...

Leave it where it was. You can’t damage the speaker - Audyssey will have trimmed it to deliver Reference at 0dB. I am assuming the speaker is competent and can hit 105dB without distress.

I forgot to respond to this part. Yes, whack it up to max and run Audyssey again and then report back and tell us what happened. I bet it solves any issues.
