Yes, XT32 is worth it. The Sub EQ HT itself isn't the deal breaker (it just levels and time aligns the subs, but if you have identical subs and can place them equidistant this is less imporant) but...

That was my first thought as well!! Best to crop out the dead bodies to limit liability ;)

Well I'm not sure if I said THAT exactly... but the general consensus is to optimize for Atmos, not Auro, since Auro is basically a DOA format. I enjoy Auromatic upmixing for music so if your...

Interesting to note that 3 of the 5 were theatrical Atmos mixes.

The diagrams are referring to the deployment of internal amps. The point of the pre outs is to allow expansion with external amplifiers beyond what the internal amps can power

Well you have two options for 7.1.2 with DTS:X upgradability. Get a new 9ch model and then no need for external amps. That would be something like the Marantz 7010 or Denon 6200 (or 7200 if you can't...

Yes if you use up all the internal amps for main zone speakers then you must use external amps for other zones.

Sure you could piggyback a PLII receiver off the Surround preouts and matrix a surround back channel.

It's a really tiny little deal. One of the last things you should be worried about.

The better reason to get this year's model with a 4k display is because of the HDCP 2.2 compliance. You know...

Dawn - why so far back from the screen? I've read in other places that you want the speakers close to the screen surface for better AT.

The signal sent out is identical to both outputs -- so you can't "actively" filter the speaker ouput vs. the pre-outs. In other words the LCR mains will get a signal lo-passed at 60Hz, and so will...

Be aware that these are 7ch receivers so to implement Atmos/DTS:X you would have to give up two speakers at the base layer to do a 5.1.2 layout (ie swapping SBack for a pair of overheads).

This is why loudness compensation schemes like Dynamic EQ exist. If you don't use DEQ then you are definitely going to find the low end sounds a bit anemic if you listen well below reference level.
