Yes to different Audyssey settings -- they are all memorized by input as the default.

DSU 1.0 already has the ability to matrix to 20.1.10 surround (or something like that). The limitation isn't DSU, it's that the standard level (AVR/pre-pro) processors are stuck designating those...

There is absolutely no way, zip, zero that you could get anything resembling true, discrete Atmos decoding with an older AVR that doesn't support object audio.

However, if you really want to...

You can't do that, at least without saving/loading separate Audyssey configs. And then you'd have to switch cabling since Sub2 output would switch from SW output to VOG.

It would be much easier...

Sorry, you're right, no actual evidence of bit depth truncation. It's really about the sample frequency.

The DAC's are 192/24 so I would imagine it's easier to process at 48/24 so it's an even...

Apparently you don't know about the magical cardboard rocket ship tower that comes with the newest Denons :)

Josey has a X7200W which comes with this, useful when you don't have a tripod.

The answer is no -- you can of course configure a 7.1 setup with 5.1+Front Wide, but you CAN'T use the Front Wides as alternate 2ch stereo speakers.

What you can do is configure it in "2CH" amp...

Well, one physical RCA output on the receiver can only output one channel of information. So if the Sub2 output is used for VOG, then that's what it puts out, and you only have one subwoofer output....

Buy it direct from Audyssey or Denon. Not worth saving $5-10 to risk potentially getting a cheap knock off that will hurt sound quality.
