The new Denon Heos system does look very promising. I look on the site and couldn't see if it supports 5.1 PCM?

Assuming it does support mulit-channel PCM the only downside is the price. A full...

Could it be the file-system format of the thumb drive? Fat-32 is the most common format and probably the only one the K-950 recognizes. A couple of times I've bought thumb-drives that were pre...

FWIW, it's still baffling to me that any 5.1 system would not support 5.1 PCM - no licensing fees, very little processing overhead because there is no need to "decode" an uncompressed signal, it's as...

Yes - of course you are correct. I meant the "best quality available" setting and not the "Auto" setting. The ATV3 had the "Auto" setting.

I don't suppose there is an audio-format-converter out...

good/best soundbar with separate surround speakers

My space won't work for "reflected" surround systems so I'm looking for a good (the best?) 5.1 soundbar system that comes with separate surround speakers. (I had high hopes for the Samsung K-950 but...

I believe the current AppleTV (4) outputs all surround sound via 5.1 PCM (it has to do internal Dolby decoding to work SIRI into the mix). That would make the K-950 a bad match.

Although the...

The Samsung atmos soundbar (K-950) has a "sound mode" where it will fake atmos sound from a standard 5.1 source. Does the Yamaha 5600 have this feature?

I really like that it has a SUB pre-out port so that I can use my own (very nice) sub with the unit.

There is a grill. The speakers come with a wall hanging mount attached to the back (at the top) and optional rubber spacers that can be attached to the bottom of the back. Works quite well.
