Thanks for that. Interesting discussion. I'm still trying to get to the part where they discuss the mechanics of _how_ it does the processing from a 2 or 5.1 source. I assume this is the same whether the source is lossy or lossless, correct? I did try it out last night and really liked what I heard. Similar to my old Onkyo 805, I guess I just tend to prefer the DTS processing/upmixing over the equivalents. In the case of my 805 with 5.1 setup, I tended to use either Neural THX or Neo:6 over DPLII for 2 ch sources. Is there an equivalent of the Neural THX that will take 2 or 5.1 sources and upmix for 7.1 speakers on the sc1522k?
I wish the 1522 manual better articulated the available modes/sources listings. The Onkyo manual had a full three pages with a very easy to digest matrix showing which processing modes could be used with which speaker combinations and sources.
I tend to be a "set it and forget it" kind of guy, so I'm trying to figure out which one (DTS:X, Optimum Surround, DPLIIx, THX Cinema, etc) is really the best solution among the set of most sources/situations, and just leave it there.
