I believe so. I've streamed high-res (88.2/24, 96/24, 176.4/24, 192/24) FLAC audio via DLNA from my FreeNAS box directly into my SC-95 with no problems (couldn't get DSD via DLNA though, had to...

Are you using 4K/10-bit mode on your Roku 4? I've found that Netflix doesn't handle 10-bit mode correctly, so it will stream the 1080p version of a 4k show if you have 10-bit mode on. I tried...

Weird, I checked it months ago just before I ordered my SC-95 off Amazon, and they clearly listed Amazon as an authorized online reseller. For some reason, they don't list *any* receiver products as...

They since reversed that - you *can* buy online, but you still have to buy from an authorized seller. I bought my SC-95 from Amazon, which was listed on Pioneer's site when I bought it as an...

Yes, the speakers are the same (aside from the two Klipsch Atmos up-firing modules I added when I received my SC-95).

From my understanding from the manual (and previous postings), a standard wallmount kit sized for a 55" display should work. My TV (the UN65JS9000) included a set of spacer rings in the box...

Yes, I've noticed that the volume (at least with non-LPCM audio) needs to be ~10 dB higher to get similar loudness as relative to my previous receiver (Pioneer VSX-1121K), which I'd had for ~4 years...

That would almost certainly not capture the BD-ROM Mark, so I'm guessing that won't work.

I go through my receiver (a Pioneer SC-95). Unless your receiver does some really bad, undefeatable image processing, or your receiver doesn't forward 3D or 4K (and you have a 3D and/or 4K TV), I'd...

I've read this is because Microsoft's idea of "bitstreaming" isn't what most sane people would call bitstreaming. There's no way to stop it from mixing in its own sound effects, so it always decodes...

FWIW, I had this problem when streaming "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." in 4K via Vudu with my Roku 4 through my SC-95, to my Samsung UN65JS9000. It seems to happen only when I enable 4k/10bit on the Roku,...

Audio quality wise, HDMI ARC is 100% equivalent to what an S/PDIF optical cable would do - it only supports stereo LPCM, DD and DTS, nothing more. I tried setting up ARC with my Pioneer Elite SC-95...
