This makes sense, and it will interesting to see what comes about with their implementation of the competing MDA offerings!

I'm not holding my breath but it's always a nice feeling thinking that we may get the upgrade. I'm very satisfied to just keep things as is listening in DSU and Atmos.

Exclamation No DTS-HD Master or True HD mode?

Obscure little trick. If you're suddenly not seeing DTS-HD Master or True HD listening options on your BD playback, make sure Zone 2 & 3 are both off. If either one is on (and presumably on the BD input), those modes will be disabled and you'll be dumbed down to the Dolby 5-1 mix.

I don't even have anything connected on zone 2, but still got bit by this because the button had been pressed. Took me a while to figure out. Hope this helps someone else.

I recently switched from a Pioneer SC to the Onkyo (which I hear are now the same company) and I'm struggling with the multi-zone config. Has anyone verified if the NET and Bluetooth audio can be sent to other zones?

I am not able to decipher exactly what/how the stream is being processed because I don't understand the little symbols on the display.


Is there a detailed 3030 guide to the front display panel or a reference site. Or maybe (wishful thinking) an option that would display details on the monitor output.


Or maybe I missed the obvious... any advice on what to look for?

Unhappy No Zone2 HDMI out

Unfortunately my testing shows this isn't true. I switched the Zone 2 source to Net while listening to Radio Paradise on the main receiver. I was trying an HDMI to SPDIF converter off of the zone 2 HDMI output and I didn't get any audio. I then tried to record the zone 2 HDMI output on my PC and didn't receive any audio. Note, both devices worked when I directly plugged my cable STB into them. I'll try to duke it out with Onkyo support. Has anyone actually tested this?

BTW: I have verified I do get the audio out of the zone 2 analog left & right pre-amp outputs.

I am using a Samson Servo 600 from my Onyko NR 3030 to drive 4 Clark Transducers via the pre outs of my fronts with RCA cables. I read that when using the pre outs when speakers are already in use cuts the power in half. Will using a line signal booster between the AVR and the amp help? The transducers are now weak as opposed to my previous Denon I was using.

The pre-outs work fine. I was trying to use the HDMI out from the NET source. That's what's not working. Haven't bothered to fight Onyko support on this. I went with 2 low cost Analog to SPDIF converters for each Zone. Pretty irritating, but this was really the only reasonable 11 channel ATMOS solution available at the time. After goin through all that pain, I will be irate if they don't provide a FW upgrade to support DTS:X.

The Owner's manual passage I quoted only applies when using the powered Zone 2 on board amps or the Zone 2 pre-outs. The Zone 2 HDMI monitor output will only pass HDMI sources.

I noticed 2 XLR outputs on the back. I am currently running to an external amp via the RCA outs. Can I attach a second amp with the XLR outputs? Or should I chain from one amp to another? Adding transducers to the second amp.

Thanks

To what end? Bi-amp? AFAIK, no reason you couldn't use both, but also no real gain in power.

I realize there would be no gain in power, just wondering if signal strength would be affected. I had to run a signal booster to the first amp for the first set of transducers because of the weak signal from the orca pre outs. Just wondering if using the XLR connections in addition to the rca would degrade signal strength further.

Thanks

No, AFAIK only some of the new 2015 models will be HDMI 2.0a(HDR). A number of AVRs can do 7.1.4 (Denon, Marantz, Yamaha) with an external 2CH amp, rather as the Onkyo NR3030 is an 11CH AVR, it requires no external amp for 7.1.4.

So any leaks on the Onkyo line up heading into 2016?

JD--I'm waiting for the 2016 Onyko with DTS:X, the Denon X6200, or the Yamaha 3030 before I upgrade from my Yamaha RX Z-11. I have the speakers in place for up to 7.2.6 and I have an Emotiva XPA-200 to feed the Fronts and an XPA-100 for the center. The Emotiva's have XLR inputs, but only the Onyko's have XLR outputs (for L/R). My pre cable runs would only be 3', but they are in an area with a lot of power cords. My research shows that without balanced signal paths from end to end, the major advantage of the XLR cables is noise shielding over longer lengths, such as 20', or more. The X6200 is expected to have XT-32. The Yamaha has an advanced YPAO with angle measuring, and the recent Onyko's have a lesser proprietary room correction, due reportedly to inadequate on-board processing, but it's possible that the 2016 Onyko's may have enough processing power to go back to Audessey. So, presuming that Onyko does do this, the room correction among these AVR's could be much of a muchness and the only significant difference (setting aside things like price, on-board amp power, and extra zones) becomes the XLR outputs. What is your opinion on the significance of this?

JVC RS600 Chad-callibrated, 120" 1.3g in Batcave HT, Denon X8500 Polk LSiM703 fronts,
RTi-12 rears, LSiM 706 center, Monitor 40 Heights, Monitor 60 FW, FXiA4 Bi-pole sides,
LSiC CH, Infinity 6" VOG. 4X 12" subs w/mini DSP on sub 1 and nearfield 18" from sub 2.

All of the new 2015 Onkyo models have been released with the 2014 NR1030 and NR3030 not being replaced until 2016. Not likely to hear info on the new 2016 models until April 2016.

Thanks JD, at the speed at which I seem to get renovations completed the theatre is in no danger of being complete but without an AVR to bring it to life so I will continue to follow the Atmos AVR market with great interest...

The Emotiva's have XLR inputs, but only the Onyko's have XLR outputs (for L/R). My pre cable runs would only be 3', but they are in an area with a lot of power cords. My research shows that without balanced signal paths from end to end, the major advantage of the XLR cables is noise shielding over longer lengths, such as 20', or more. The X6200 is expected to have XT-32. The Yamaha has an advanced YPAO with angle measuring, and the recent Onyko's have a lesser proprietary room correction, due reportedly to inadequate on-board processing, but it's possible that the 2016 Onyko's may have enough processing power to go back to Audessey. So, presuming that Onyko does do this, the room correction among these AVR's could be much of a muchness and the only significant difference (setting aside things like price, on-board amp power, and extra zones) becomes the XLR outputs. What is your opinion on the significance of this?
If you're specifically asking about the XLR outputs ... not likely very significant in your setup.

I didn't say they would be replaced in April 2016, rather I said, that there are no more models to be released in 2015 and that the new 2016 models would not be "announced" until around April 2016. The successors to the NR1030 and NR3030 likely won't be released until Oct/Nov 2016.

Yes, that was my question. April, 2016 for the Onyko to see if they put Audessy back in is a long way away, and if the XLR is not significant in my application, it's down to the Yamaha and the X6200, when it's released.

JVC RS600 Chad-callibrated, 120" 1.3g in Batcave HT, Denon X8500 Polk LSiM703 fronts,
RTi-12 rears, LSiM 706 center, Monitor 40 Heights, Monitor 60 FW, FXiA4 Bi-pole sides,
LSiC CH, Infinity 6" VOG. 4X 12" subs w/mini DSP on sub 1 and nearfield 18" from sub 2.
