I don't recall where I read it, but I vaguely remember somebody reporting that they had a similar occurance and Denon CSR said it was a known bug.

While you definitely can use an old receiver as an external amp, in this case I would recommend trying to get a cheap 2ch (or more) amp to use instead. Besides the fact that it's somewhat of a waste...

Minor nitpick -- just in terms of justifying the cost premium -- but you also get 3 zones instead of 2, and 11ch pre-outs with 9ch processing capability (vs. 7 max on the X3000). It's pretty...

The key is that Audyssey needs to have all present speakers calibrated -- it wants to know the distance (delay), level, and response of the speaker. If you delete a speaker from the layout, that...

You aren't missing anything -- the "Dolby Atmos" amp assign mode is very inflexible and only to be used when you have an "ideal" Atmos layout.

In your case, using 7.1 amp assign + FH is perfectly...

That is correct:

Amp Assign = 9.1ch
Height Speakers = Using Dolby Speakers
Height Layout = Front Dolby

Makes sense -- my experience was somewhat similar in that the effect was "fragile" depending on the exact position of the Atmos module relative to the MLP. That's what you'd expect considering they...

I'm surprised that the Studio 10's got flagged as Large. Paradigm specs them at -2dB at 62Hz, and NRC measurements support that they are rolling off below 70-80Hz as you'd expect from a moderately...

The answer is pretty simple -- Audyssey has no clue what the "maximum performance" or "headroom" of your system is. You can infer nothing about your system headroom from the Audyssey results. The...

Well, the RC80i's are a lot cheaper. But they will be more "direct" having a single aimable tweeter vs. the more diffuse/envelopment sound of the dual tweeters aiming in different directions.

It happens all the time. Anyone who isn't running larger tower speakers with meaningful bass down to the ~40Hz range will end up with all speakers set to Small after calibration.

For example, my...

The important thing to understand though is that Audyssey doesn't actually set the crossovers. All it does is measure the speakers' response and pass the data to the processor, which then makes the...

As JD noted, running a "standard" 5.1.4 layout doesn't require any additional pre-out configuration since you have the 9 potential speakers covered (height2 on external amp + the 7 internal amps). ...

No, that's correct. Analog in > Analog out is the only option. No downmix of HDMI.

For the Apple TV you will probably have to get a third-party converter device.

I would guess that it's because your Samsung BDP doesn't support that type of file ;)

Not every device with a USB port can read HD movie clips and bitstream the audio from them.
