Why would a firmware update having anything to do with DTS:X or Neural:X be applied to the 5200?

As your 5200 will never get DTS:X or Neural:X the whole issue is not relevant to you. You will never be able to use Neural:X at all, never mind with Dolby or DTS sources.

Did you get chance yet to look at the comparison between XT32 and XT in the link I posted earlier? That was the OP's question: which is best, XT32 or XT? I answered him and gave objective...

I think those speakers would benefit from a better, more powerful sub and that could be your next upgrade. The Kube 2 is a good sub for what it is, but it is overpriced for the spec. It has a 10 inch...

Well if you follow the link I gave you and read that complete FAQ answer, you will see why XT is a fairly poor choice for room EQ, compared with XT32.

I agree with JD normally that one should...

Sorry JD but I don't agree with that advice at all. The room is the most significant component in a system, and thus the room EQ is the most important part of any modern AVR. Given that XT32 is a...

Yes, XT32 is a very significant step up. If you want to know the technical reasons why, I wrote an in-depth Addendum to the Audyssey FAQ explaining it, with relevant measurement graphs etc. You can...

I sit the same distance from the screen as the screen is wide. Seems perfect to me. Very immersive.

Well yes - but we knew that when we bought it of course. My next AVR, this time next year, will have DTS:X of course. There might even be some content for it by then ;)

XT32 is a very significant upgrade to XT. And definitely better, IMO, than MCACC. If I were you I would wait, if you can, for the unit with XT32. XT32 is so good that when Onkyo dropped support for...

I'm not "suggesting" anything. I am telling you that to get a 3dB increase in output you need to double the power of the amp. So if you have a 100 watt amp, you need to go to a 200 watt amp to get a...
