Hello all! I found out about this receiver on dealnews.com from Dell for $169 shipped. I read some reviews, and JUMPED on it. Two days later Dell canceled the order due to wrong pricing!. I had read all 50 pages hear and was bummed. I ended up buying one from Amazon for $300 shipped anyway! My previous unit was a Marantz SR-19, prologic only, using bi-amped adcom 555's driving Vandersteen 4's, Vandersteen center channel, driven by a Marantz Ma-7, in ceiling surronds, A kilowatt of old school watts may seem like overkill, but the Vandersteens are power hungry! Anyway, this amps sounds great! I have only had it for a day, but the best thing I can say about it is I don't hear it, ie it just sounds right. I was skeptical that it this price point it would be this good, but I love it!
Now for my first question to you folks. I have read the manual, and I think that feeding it a dolby digital signal via dvd, using straight mode will decode DD, but on my old SR-19 an indicator would tell me that for sure. On the RX-665 the speaker indicator shows the same lights on in either DD, or prologic correct? So to confirm DD I press the info button and check decoder mode, is that right? I take it that in straight mode, if there was no DD signal it would use prologic II?
