Hello all, thanks for taking the time to read my query. This is only for those who bitstream TrueHD to their receiver.
I'd like to know which brands of receiver can be defaulted so that the autoflagged DRC is never allowed to pass or be triggered.
I believe with the bluray players, if they are doing the actual decoding, and DRC is set to off, it remains so.
However, I don't know what it's like with receivers. My 805 requires manually defeating the DRC with TrueHD with every title. I don't know if all receivers are like this, or that mine is the rarity, or that implementation varies widely. (There is a FW update available for me, but I am on the second to last, so I highly doubt that would do anything).
This has become enough of a nuisance where I believe I would pay a significant premium just to not have to deal with this anymore. I understand that I could perhaps have everything decoded at the player, but I just wanted to know about any such possible receivers that fit the bill, as that will surely have an effect on any future upgrade decision.
IIRC, Pioneer will keep the setting? How about Denon? Marantz? Yamaha? NAD? Anthem? Emotiva? Has Onkyo/Integra changed this since my purchase?
