That's the whole point of "the rocket". It allows you to run Audyssey with close-to-proper support for free.

That said, a couple of points:

1) the "use it once and put it away forever" idea...

The advice from Dolby has been that precise placement within the angular specifications isn't really that important. I don't think you need symmetry in the sense of the Top Fronts being the same...

Selden has already given great responses, but just to be clear, it's important to understand the difference between mastering techniques vs. codecs vs. upmixing.

The DTS/Dolby codecs like TrueHD,...

It wasn't a blurb, it was idle speculation by a poster based on hearsay from somebody (a dealer?) he had spoken with. So I would treat that the same as any other internet rumor.

I think you're confused about several things which Keith has tried to clear up. Neo:X is not a codec, it's an upmix algorithm. There were a few (3?) blu rays that were specially coded to mix up to...

I'm confused. Why would you want to turn off HDMI passthrough "on the fly" with a button? It's a fairly fundamental setting that is done initially. Either you want the option of using it or you...

Well the 4520 already has multiple sub EQ, so no difference with the new models.

Atmos is obviously the biggest change. The other meaningful changes are ancillary features like wifi, Bluetooth,...

You need output in a room of your volume. A port allows for "cheap" extra output over a comparably priced sealed sub, so I would say so. It's not hard and fast -- I'm sure there are some awesome...
