Yes.

Use the Denon's web interface to save each configuration, then reload whichever one you want, at will. Each save and reload takes 10-15 minutes. It's a fairly painless process. I just...

If the sound coming from the speakers is identical in each config, why would it make any difference where the speakers were located? The sole thing which could affect the sound we hear would be...

It can't switch to a calibration you haven’t yet done ;)



Yes, 5.2.4 is OK with the 4100 if you add a 2ch external amp. DSU will use all of your overhead speakers.

If you use different speaker layouts then Audyssey will not have calibrated for those layouts so it disables itself until you recalibrate. This is, perhaps surprisingly, so even if you don't move the...

It was indeed Roger who first sparked my interest in the Tannoys, when he pointed out the excellent specification and their suitability for Atmos. We are an effective team. ;)
