IMO, yes. Why not just try it and see if the hiss goes away? I suspect it is a gain matching issue.

There is no inherent hiss from the 88A. If there was I think it would have been mentioned by...

Yeah - it's not like any of the recent posters have ever contributed much Atmos-related information to this thread, or ever helped out with any serious questions is it?

She was very beautiful. Such tragic waste of human life. In fact, of two lives since she was pregnant at the time.

Whatever the AVR or processor, the 88A will be a substantial improvement because it works on the thing which most influences the sound we hear: the room.

Yes - at great cost of time and effort I moved my TM pair forward to about 80-85° and it was a good improvement (here). When they were slightly behind me, I never really felt that I was hearing them.
