dts neo 6 vs dts neo:x vs dts neural:x

I am confused with those formats. Can both dts neo:x vs dts neural:x can convert stereo to multichannel? If yes, what's the difference?

Thank you for any help.

Yes it can but neural x is more designed to convert 2ch or 5 channels movies to simulate atmos soundtrack for movies.

Personally, I like a lot listening 2 channel music with neo 6. Neo6 convert 2ch music to 5 channels.

Those three upmixers are just a progression of DTS surround processing, all of which can be applied to stereo and multi-channel source material. Neo:6, as the name implies, has up to 6 outputs: 3 fronts, 2 sides, 1 rear (normally played back through 2 speakers). This was replaced by Neo:X, which had 11 outputs: standard 7.1 + 2 wides + 2 heights. This was replaced by Neural:X, which upmixes all sources to DTS:X speaker layouts.

Is it ever possible to adjust the levels of the channels? My Yamaha stereo to 7.1 DSP allows me to adjust the volume of the center and rears, but it has no settings for the others.

Not as such. If your AV processor allows you to make different speaker configurations or different level calibration configurations, you could make use of those to good effect.

In my case I have a speaker config with the 4 ceiling speakers deactivated, which also adds my customary 6 dB boost to the subwoofers just for stereo music use. It is married to an input with default upmixing as AnthemLogic Music, which normally outputs to all available speakers, but I don't like the heights for music. Just me. Rather than attenuate them I just turn them off.

If I were to use Neural:X or DSU for music, I'd apply different sets of level reductions in the surround speakers, and use those level presets in a separate input setup.

I hope this makes sense. In the end, it depends on your processor's flexibility.

I wish they let you fine tune the parameters of the DSP the way Yamaha lets you adjust their DSPs. Life would be a lot simpler.

At some point I'm going to jot down all the different settings in the Yamaha DSPs and see if anyone here can help define them. Some are self explanatory, but others have pretty technical titles. They don't have a "return to default" setting, so I'm hesitant to tweak them if I don't know what I'm tweaking.
