My old Onkyo amp gave up the ghost last Friday so, after a bit of Googling, I took the plunge and forked out for a DN1080.
I went through the "Easy Configuration" and, although I didn't know what a lot of the acronyms meant, I just mainly stuck with the default settings.
The sound is fantastic and it also seems to have significantly improved the picture quality of my 7 year old TV.
I'd recorded the Blue Planet 2 series on my Virgin Media cable box in HD and, although the picture is amazing, I noticed the amp showing "Multi St" on the front. I thought that "Multi St" was just splitting the sound between all the speakers? (I have a 5.1 setup).
I would have thought that, because I recorded the program in HD, it would have selected some sort of 'surround' sound option when it played back?
Am I correct in thinking this? And, if so, what do I need to change on my amp for it to play the content with the correct sound configuration?
Apologies if these are basic questions, I appreciate if someone could shed some light on this for me.
