it isn't 'proper placement'. It is an upmix. Proper placement would have required the movie to be mixed specifically for Height channels, and it wasn't. They have 'optimized' it for Neo:X - nobody...

Denon manuals are so opaque that we have to rely on batpig's 'translation' of them into English so I wouldn’t assume everything they contain is unassailably correct. As for the packaging, well, it's...
