Double check the assignment of the Volume up/down function... In certain AVR models, this is assignable to another source device such as Sat or cable box when in the AVR mode.... Just my $0.05... πŸ‘πŸ˜‰
A couple of clarifications are in order...😁1. The Cirrus Logic DSP chips can be programmed to handle a variety of room EQ softwares, including their own generic royalty-free version or either version of Audyssey, plus there is 1 other option from a less known source in Sweden.2. Royalties of an HD AVR are very expensive, for SD Dolby & DTS modes, HD Dolby and DTS modes, Air Play, HDMI, iPod/iPhone...In fact when HD audio became popular, their royalties were 2.5X those of...

Gibson wants more visibility in the CE biz...Thats why they bought Teac/Tascam.Here is the subject press release link..http://tascam-ca.com/news/display/1304/@ the recently held NAMM show (January, 2014) in Anaheim, CA Gibson had a large booth showing all of its products including Teac/Tascam. Can't speak for Gibson, but the timing is apparently ripe for procuring various CE brands who are struggling. Gibson's objective is to be the largest music and sound business in...
I thought Phil is locked up...Just my $0.05... πŸ‘πŸ˜‰
Incorrect...Software has varying costs...Initial development, maintenence and updates for forward compatibility...Keep in mind that an entry-level AV buyer has limited knowledge and his 1st concerns are..a. How much power output wattsb. How many HDMI inputsc. Does it handle 3D or 4Kd. Does it have iPod/iPhone capabiitye. Does it have USB & networkf. What type of remote controlBottom line...Onkyo lost big $ over the last (3) years, thats why they sold 55% of their USA...
Development cost is significant...Writing code, debugging and validation, plus time. Note that I was the program manager for a major audio brand that developed its own room EQ software and its cost was about $485K...Its cost was amortized into (2) brands and over a family of products..Note that each DSP supplier such as ADI, Cirrus Logic, TI have their own library of royalty-free post-processing modes including room EQ, virtualizers, MP3 restore, headphone surround, bass...
The new AVRs use a Cirrus Logic DSP, and they can use their proprietary, royalty-free Rooom EQ system..No-brainer, save the expensive Audyssey royalty...Just my $0.05.... πŸ‘πŸ˜‰
Nope... Gone. 😑Vanished after the California AVR team was terminated and the AVR product development function exported to China...Was a great feature & info tool..a. Showed speaker sizeb. Showed # of speakersc. Showed # of channels in the encoded native streamJust my $0.05... πŸ‘πŸ˜‰
Lets clarify the above.. 1. 3-D Video PerformanceIf one is running the 3-D video directly to the HD display then the AVR has no interaction with the 3-D video2. 3-D Audio PerformanceIf one is decoding the HD audio within the Blu-ray player (DTS Master Audio or Dolby Digital + or Dolby Tru Audio) outputting 5.1/7.1 analog audio > the AVR through multi-channel line inputs, then the AVR is simply a 5.1 or 7.1 amplifier..Just my $0.05... πŸ‘πŸ˜‰
