I am not sure if one listening mode would be better than the other. I look forward to peoples opinion. I know I can just switch between them, and see which one I enjoy.
I personally don't hear a great difference in the quality of music between them, just that it just sounds a bit different. I prefer music to sound like I am at a concert, but remain accurate to what the music was intended to be.
Thank you for your time in reading this, and I appreciate you giving me your opinion.
I have the tx nr 787, and i personally prefer the thx music mode, although, DSU is much improved once you turn on the center spread, if you can find it. Without it music is way to center channel heavy but with center spread on, its a pretty good way to listen also.
