The manual shows the license for DTS, but nothing about DTS:X. I wonder if that might be possible through an update, or whether the hardware is different.

Would you describe what you're seeing as the colors bleeding into each other? If so, this has to do with the timing of the color wheel. The timing is adjustable, but that's beyond my purview.

Do you mean that with Dolby 5.1 that the sound is less room filling in general, or that the soundstage is narrower?

Thanks for your input.

I'm tremendously curious about your review, as I have been intrigued since the announcement.

Unfortunately, my living room ceiling, although "flat" in the middle, curves down towards the edges.

You wouldn't get rear height effects with the Yamaha as it is 7.1.2, rather than 7.1.4.

It'll be interesting to see how the Samsung 5.1.4 soundbar performs when it hits the market.
