Should be by the first week of October.

I would doubt that they would go back to Audessy but they will most likely continue to improve their AccuEq. JMHO.

I am interested in the 3030 for 7.1.4 but have not seen many receivers here. I don't want to add a second amp or anything like that, I just want a simple 7.1.4 system. Anyone here have any reviews?

Everything I read about it is pretty positive. I have the 1030 and it's really a great receiver.

No dts:x update though, keep that in mind.

Onkyo TX-NR3030

I also have the 1030. It's the best receiver I've owned to date. I played with the 3030 extensively before deciding on the 1030, as I only wanted to go with a 5.2.4 setup in the end. The 3030 would serve you well. Some points to consider though, according to the specs the 3030 will deliver [email protected] and has HDMI 2.0 & HDCP 2.2. Onkyo had the foresight to include it in the 14 model year, albeit only on input 3 but it is there none the less. I've been told it has a great 4K up scaler but I couldn't say for sure as I only use my 1030 to upscale to 1080P, which is great by the way. As pointed out above no DTSX on the 3030, but DSU sure does a great job.

I've been a proud owner of one for a bout a couple of months now and all I have for it is praise, fantastic sound very dynamic with movies and beautifully musical, Atmos sounds fantastic. Features are way more than I could use. You just cannot go wrong with it. I don't really care much for DTS:X as its a bit of an unknown yet and Atmos is just great.

All be it at only the HDMI 1.4 video bandwidth of 10.2 Ghz and it will also not include HDMI 2.0a (HDR).

If you already own or plan on purchasing a 4k/UHD TV in the near feature and want to pass the 4K/UHD source through the AVR, you may want to reconsider purchasing a newer 2015 model with HDMI 2.0a (HDR) with full 18GHz video bandwidth using a 2CH external amp to achieve 7.1.4, otherwise the NR3030 will be replaced this time next year with a newer version.

Yes that is my only gripe with it as I will be upgrading to a Sony 520Es projector and not sure of the 3030 will cause a bottleneck? I love the amp so don't want to have to upgrade.

It shouldn't cause a bottleneck as long as using the single HDCP 2.2 input on the NR3030, however, if it should, if you may want to consider purchasing the following which will bypass the HDCP 2.2 ...

Thanks Yes I was considering the fury already. Would the fury solve the problem with HDR as well? What I mean is that obviously the 3030 won't pass through HDR but I would still need to somehow route the input via the amp so I get sound.

No, as the HDMI 2.0a is a newer hardware/software feature.

So after all the amp will cause a bottleneck as it will not pass through one of the most important features. Hmm I was really hoping i can getaway without an upgrade as I really love the way the 3030 sounds.

Which is why I don't want to replace it but if I spend over $10K on a HDR projector I will want to see HDR so hoping Onkyo will come up with the new version of the 3030. I love this amp too.

Also has anyone figured out if there is a way to adjust bass on each separate listening mode? I'd love more bass on Stereo and less on Movies. Any way to achieve this??

Ahh, thanks, I like the laser engine in the Epson but not the 'quasi' 4K implementation... interesting that there are 4K DLP for commercial cinema but not for home?

Question Planing a 7.2.4 setup

I'm upgrading my lounge / theatre settup ( next year most likely april ) from the current one been a Bose Lifestyle V35 its done me well for years from 1 property to the next but now time to go the NON all-in-one set-up's, plus a friend would like my old gear lol

The room has solid walls , ground floor , normal ceiling for in-ceiling speakers and Rectangular ( dining-room + Lounge ) L-Shaped Sofa for Lounge to divide the room accordingly

not just movies but music as well

Currently thinking

TX-NR3030 - in 7.4.4 setup using the following speakers
Monitor Audio Bronze or Silver Speakers
Bronze 6 or Silver 8
1 x Bronze or Silver Centre
2 x pairs of FX ( di-pole / bi-pole ) surround speakers Bronze or Silver
4 x subs Bronze W10 most likely
4 x ceiling speakers for Atmos

Currently got Oppo BD-P103 Blu-ray Darbee Edition( bought in preperation for upgrade and never got started until now )
Playstation 3 and 4, sky HD 3D 2TB, Apple TV, Synology Network Server DLNA

is DTS-X better that 7.4.4 using Atmos?
Shall I wait to see if new receivers get launched , onkyo looks the best top notch ?

Thanks

Question Hdcp 2.2

I take it that the TX-NR3030 only does 4K Pass-thru via *HDMI 3 (STB/DVR)* so if you have a 4K TV and a 4K Blu-ray you would use *HDMI 3 (STB/DVR)*
All other HDMI inputs only receive or capable of 1080P, but it does up Scale to 4K....

Also can the TX-NR3030 take 4 Subs for FL/FR and RL/RR

Thanks

The Earthquake Sweet Spot SS82W do look good , nice having the angle even with the main driver unit so you can have front and rear ceiling mounted in direction to the listening point

I was originally looking at Monitor Audio Ceiling FX type Speaker = The CT380-FX which are Bi-pole / Di-pole

All other HDMI inputs only receive or capable of 1080P, but it does up Scale to 4K....

Also can the TX-NR3030 take 4 Subs for FL/FR and RL/RR

Thanks
1. Correct, but only at the HDMI 1.4 bandwidth of 10.2GHz rather than the newer HDMI 2.0 18GHz bandwidth on the 2015 models.
2. Yes.

This only on the TX-RZ800 and RZ900 models though correct? The NR3030 is so far unchanged... for HDMI specs.

I'm waiting for them updating the TX-NR3030 so it will have DTS-X and 384khz/32bit DAC etc , hopefully a new line-up in "April 2016", currently the TX-NR3030 does 4K via HDMI 3 only and upscales other sources to a 4K TV so you should be ok as not many 4K sources other than Blu-ray ( eg. Oppo BD-P103 )

3030 on Order - Some Questions Please

Well, I've stayed on the Dark Side (or not gone over to the Dark Side, depending on your perspective) and opted to buy a 3030 to replace my "ancient" TX-NR717. Looking forward to being audibly "dazzled" (if that makes sense) by Atmos, not to mention getting 4K pass through at 60 frames per second and 7.2.4 sound.


So, some questions.


The attached sketch shows my media room layout and current speaker positions.


The room measures 19 feet long x 12.5 feet wide. Not exactly your local multiplex and I'm not going to go bananas and paint the walls black, fit bass traps, rotate the house to line up with the sunrise on the Solstice (even though it pretty much does already) or anything like that. The plan is to have at least one couch on the upper right level, with the front row on the middle level. The third (dotted) couch is an option, and the back couch can be moved forwards away from the wall if desirable.


The fronts are Yamaha NS-IW960 "MTM" in-walls, the backs are Yamaha NS-IW660 3-ways, and the rest are / will be Yamaha NS-IC800 concentric 2-ways, all rated for 140 or 150 watts. I have two Polk PSW-110 subs in the front corners. They can be moved as thought best, but for now I'll leave them where they are.


From reading the Onkyo manual on line and looking at my layout, I think the overheads should ideally be at the 1/4 of the way down the room and the 3/4 of the way down the room, rather than half-way as at present. Is that right / best?


I'm planning to leave the half-way down the room ones in place for now (mostly so I don't have to patch the sheetrock), MAYBE use them as the left and right surrounds until I get permission from the Memsahib to put more speakers in the walls. Alternatively, I have some spare Klipsch stand-mount / bookshelf speakers I could use for the left and right surrounds until I get permission to cut more holes. Thoughts on that?


The fronts will stay where they are for now, pending a 120 inch screen and 4K projector purchase some time next year (right after Hell freezes over according to my wife, but we'll see). Thoughts on whether I should move them down to ear level or wait until I fit the screen and level them up with the middle height of the screen?

Finally, should I think about moving the rears down the wall to ear level, leave them where they are, or, dare I ask it, play it by ear? If I move them, I'll probably have to replace them with 2-way round concentrics to keep her happy with the looks, maybe I can use the 3-way rectangular jobs for the sides then. But only maybe. The sides will probably end up being round concentrics as well.


Actually, thinking about it, should I be putting all the in-walls at the same ear-matching level?

Thanks in advance.

When I get home I can provide a copy or a link for the Dolby Whitepaper on Atmos speaker placement... but in a nut shell all surround speakers and including the front speakers should be closer to ear level, essentially all at the same level. The overhead speakers should be placed using Dolby guidelines, so the speaker right above what I assume to be the MLP is not going to work for Atmos (but could be a VOG speker for DTS-X). I will also post the graphic that shows this relative speaker placement.
