What about the 'snap audio to nearest loudspeaker' instruction that is present in object-based audio as an option for the producer? Or have I missed something?

That would put the sound object in...

With UHD @ 60p you don't need to fear 4:2:0 chroma sampling. I used to think 4:2:2 was the only best way to do chroma, but then I realized that 4:2:2 was really suited to the old interlaced formats....

I think you meant to say "Does anybody know if the RX-A1030 keeps the pure DSD stream native or converts the DSD to PCM first?"

Well, I believe the answer is 'it depends'.

If you're using YPAO...

Yes, just select 'Extra Bass' in the setup, and you can have Large Fronts with LFE going to both them and the subwoofer. Bass filtered off from SMALL speakers will also go to both Fronts and Sub.

Where does it say anywhere that the a3040 will do Dolby PLIIz or Neo:X?

No Yamaha model currently does these surround modes.

I wouldn't get the Yamaha to do it, as it's implementation of "4K" and version of HDMI limits it to a maximum frame rate of 30p in 4K/UHDTV.

So if you were to upscale true 50i/p or 60i/p to 4K,...

But the catch is that none of these TVs can accept 4K @ 50p or 60p. HDMI v1.4 maxs out at 30p for 4K. Not until v2.0 of HDMI will it be capable of 4K 50p and 60p. They don't tell you that. So good...
