That seems like a very nice option -- and they specifically mention Atmos in the description (coincidence?!?!). Axiom makes very neutral speakers so they should be easy to calibrate and "match" the...

with respect to the other point, that seems like a huge waste of resources to use a very recent model, nowhere-near-obsolete 4520CI as a 4-5 ch amp. You could easily...

Home theater is all about compromise, few peeople can have "perfection" in their setups. Considering the speakers won't be directly over your head I think you will be fine. It would probably be...

Yeah, like JD says, at a store like Best Buy there will probably not be any discounts until the new models are in stock and then they want to clear out inventory. To get in on a sale at Best Buy you...

Here's the thing though -- adding a second sub does NOT make the bass louder. Sure, you would have more headroom if you were inclined to crank it, but remember that once you calibrate the system the...

He's referring to the tv upscaling. The receiver can't scale to 4k. The point is that the device doesn't have to support the full resolution of the display because the display itself will upscale....

HDMI passthrough is HDMI only. It won't convert optical audio. No processing, just passive passthrough.

Any reason though you aren't using HDMI for video AND audio?

The fact that DD+ is not an option means that the receiver isn't getting it -- it's getting a stereo signal input. You need to look upstream at the SOURCE, the receiver doesn't control the input...

I think they will be fine. Axiom speakers should be pretty neutral and close to flat so it shouldn't be hard for XT32 to tweak them to the target curve. And furthermore the height speakers probably...

It probably is rooted in the old adage that it's easier to destroy a tweeter by UNDERpowering it (clipped signal) than overpowering it. Yes, if you tried to push the X4000 so loud that its amps went...

Yes, you can use them for Atmos. It's not "ideal" as it will obviously be difficult to image sounds directly overhead without speakers up there, but technically you CAN use the Atmos processing with...

That's not what was asked. We don't care what you hear -- the question is what is the receiver reporting as the INPUT SIGNAL format.

The point is that it's not uncommon for an htpc set to output...

I wouldn't use a quad-polar surround speaker for Atmos "top" use. Atmos speakers are generally supposed to be monopoles.
