Hi All, New member here, just have a few questions about the 5006. Looking to pick one up from Ac4L, as many here seem to have good to great experience shopping there.
First, **Is this receiver capable of passing 3d from BD/STB to TV?** I see in the A4L details a reference to hdmi 1.4 specifically for 3d, but the 6006 specifically says in the item link "3d ready" while the 5007 specifically says in the link "3D 4K". This is a big concern for me as I am in the process of finding a Panasonic GT or ST 50 to complete my setup and both are 3D displays.
Second, **Will the receiver send the auto-on and low signals to my sub even if I have my front stage set to large?** I have just returned a yamaha v473 as it took fully setting it up and a few days to realize that if i had the front stage set to large the receiver would not pass ANY signal to my sub (the auto-on never happened). If I set them to small, the sub instantly got its on directive. I have full range BA HS450 towers, and these are certainly not uncapable of handing some lower frequencies. It matters to me as I own a multi-family home and have tenants here. If I want to watch some sort of movie late at night I like to turn off my sub and my towers still afford me a respectable sound range. It is an annoyance to have to mess with the avr's settings when all I want is my sub off which is a simple switch to throw for me.
Lastly, with BA HS450 fronts, BA HS250 center and an Outlaw LFM-EX, all I am missing is satellites. **Can anyone recommend a reasonably prices pair of rear surround speakers to add to my setup?** I'm only looking for 5.1 presently, but considering this receiver as I plan to acquire a second home within the next 18 months or so and will be taking the receiver there to set up my media room. Then I will be using 7.1.
Thanks all for your contributions to this knowledgebase as well as your presumptive responses to my inquiry.
