OK - but if the rear overheads aren't working, than AFAIAC it's no good. I'll just forget about it I think. I don't have the patience to mess about with reloading configs if all I want to do is...

I can fix it by clearing my cache in Firefox, exiting FF and reloading FF. But what a pain.

If the processor/AVR has XLR outputs and the Emotiva amp has XLR inputs, I can't imagine that they would not work correctly together. But I don't use XLR personally so cannot speak from experience.

OK. So even using just one set of speakers for both I still have to save and reload a config each time I want to change? Presumably because the AVR sees a change from FH+TM to FH+?? (whatever Auro...

I'm not sure what you are asking, sorry.

If both units have XLR then that is taken care of automatically. No more reason to worry about clipping than if you connect with RCA.

Thanks for that, Dave. It seems that I might be able to benefit from the Auro upgrade then, even using my Atmos FH+TM layout. I guess the only way to find out for sure is to try it. The Auro upgrade...

If you change from RCA to XLR you will have a 6dB boost in level. If you are happy with that then you don't need to re-run Audyssey. DEQ will be affected.

Incorrect. XPA-3 Gen 1 amps had gain of 32dB. All Gen 2 X series have gain of 29dB. 32-29=3 so that explains what Jerry is seeing.

No need to run Audyssey again IMO. What you have done is no different to changing the level of the trims, if the 3dB difference is the same across all your channels. Dynamic EQ might be affected a...
