I am a bit confused on what to expect playing a UHD disc on a 1080p display. My initial thoughts were it should yield an improvement due to better encoding but it seems the translation of colour...

My YSP-5600 makes a whining noise. It is coming from the power supply and the pitch changes depending on what the bar is doing. I saw a poster earlier in this thread saying theirs did the same thing...

I have a turntable connected into the phono inputs. Obviously if I want to avoid "digitising" it, I have to use Direct or Pure Direct on my X5200.
