I have a Yamaha now, was thinking of switching to get DSU, Atmos and Audyssey, but these would be dealbreakers IMO as all this works perfectly for me right now. I don't think XT32 is worth another $400.
Are these confirmed issues?
I don't have problems with the audio dropping nor any issues with ARC. Airplay sometimes drops out but that's when I keep fast forwarding and doing a lot of skipping around. I don't use wifi so dunno.
