Actually IMHO, when I raise the centre channel by 3db, there are no issues with panning or the soundstage. YMMV.

I belong to the camp which believes amps make a difference. IMHO, the Emotiva is a reasonable upgrade if you feel the speakers lack dynamics, but if you are using it in a small room, then other...

Consider a Marantz stereo amp. There are pre outs and a phono stage. You can bypass the internal amps and use your active speakers.

+1000 !!

Isn't it a big snafu if we have Gen 1 amps that are HDMI 2.0 but Not HDCP 2.2?

Thanks JD, I might consider this instead of the AV 7702 if I go for Gen 1 Atmos AV amps then.
I have always been a fan of the Marantz sound, so the 7009 / 7702 tick most of the boxes.. as much as I...

Does anyone know if it will do 11.2 (with external amps)?
Or is it limited to the AV 7702 / 8802?

Thanks

Unless you are into turntables, the 60 / 50 Hz issue should not be a problem..

Besides you may end up selling it and getting something better back home later on, cheers.

Re: LDs vs DVDs.
IMHO, the LDs are much bigger, and the machines need that RF adaptor, and the newer DVD players were smaller, and about the same cost. No brainer.

Mate, I checked my PM 11s3 just now, no such noises, perhaps it's the speaker that's giving you issues?

So you can use a HDCP 2.2 BR player and a HDCP 2.2 TV with a 2014, non HDCP 2.2 AV amp like the newer 7009 / AV 7702?

There is little concrete info, and if the first generation DSP chips are crippled, then it makes more sense to adopt a fully developed format.

I feel that this generation is not well thought...

I don't know if it will be more stateside, but down here (230v), I used a Belkin device to measure (it's available off Amazon), and at idle it's about 25W, and in full tilt it's still less than 150W,...
