  1. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    My main receiver is a Denon x3700h which is setup to process 7.1.4. I wanted to expand the front soundstage with front wides without buying another receiver and at over $3k. So I had an hdmi 4x2 matrix and an Onkyo tx sr608 laying around and thought, well what if I output audio from my 4K player...
  2. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hello. As a person who has two ears and has an irregularly shaped room to enjoy my media in, I've always heard that if you want directional accuracy in my situation then surround headphones is the best option. Something similar to a Turtle Beach x41 for the 360 or later the DSs processors...
  3. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I started getting into Surround Sound audio when I bought a Turtle Beach headphone for my Xbox 360. Before that when dad asked how much it would cost to set up the main surround system in the room they said the labor alone would cost $10,000 as a quick estimate. At around the same time my...
  4. HDMI Q&A - The One Connector World
    My laptop has only a HDMI 2.0 port(not 2.1). Will I be able to pass through lossless Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD 5.1 audio alongside a 1080p video feed to my AVR? Since, I'll only be sending a 1080p video feed and not 4K, can the extra bandwidth available be used for transferring lossless audio with...

    This thread is for discussion of the 2020 Denon AVRs: S960H/X2700H/X3700H/X4700H/X6700H * NOTE: The 2019 S650H, S750H, and X1600H will not be replaced and will continue through 2020 and therefore will continue being discussed in the 2019 Denon AVR Owner's thread. The X6700H will have a 3 year...

  7. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    This is during watching Lost on Hulu via the Shield. I just noticed that when the format was Dolby Surround, the sound came out of all speakers. I changed it now to DTS Neural:X and the numbers stayed the same, but the sounds actually make sense now. Dialogue from front and noises from the...
  8. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I have a Marantz SR 7015 with a 6.1.2 (5.1 + L and R Atmos, and one additional center back surround) speaker setup. I can playback Atmos and 7.1 encoded content. I’d love to be able to playback either format, but with all speakers working. So, Atmos + my center back surround, or 7.1 + Atmos...
  9. Headphones
    Hey there buddies, I've been enjoying my jvc xp-ext1 for a few months now, they're great, but eventhough they cost a fortune, the receiver box is coil-whining from day 1 and one headphone plastic thingie broke already, and I keep the headphones on a pillow [I mean it] and I always handle them...
  10. Speakers
    Hi, I am in mid of planning my HT and want to discuss 7.1.6 and 9.1.4. There are very old posts which says there are very few content recorded for 9.1.x and over. What about now? Is it worth adding more speakers? And opinion on adding 6 height speakers rather having 2 wide one. Thanks in advance!
  11. Audio Gear
    I'm looking for a simple S/PDIF capable 5.1 AVR with working remote. I assume DTS/DD would be supported with S/PDIF, but figure I'd mention it. Happy to pick up or ship. I should clarify that I'm really looking for like $50 "cheap". Bonus if it's got ARC, but really S/PDIF is all I need.

    I got an Onkyo TX-NR787 recently, open box at Best Buy, for $280, not including tax and the optional extra warranty. I haven't yet received any responses to my following two posts in the main thread for that AVR, so I'm quoting those posts here, so that anyone who might be able to answer my...
  15. Xbox Area
    Does an Xbox One process Dolby Digital and DTS audio streams from streaming services? How do Dolby Atmos and DTS:X work on Xbox One? What are the pros and cons of how they are implemented? I have an Xbox One S, an Onkyo TX-NR787 A/V receiver, and a 5.0 speaker setup. I don't yet own a...
  16. Soundbars
    Good evening. I have an LG LAS551H older soundbar and a newer LG SK6Y model, both with subwoofers. Both have great sound but I admit I do prefer the LAS551H. The problem I am having is with volume output on my new Samsung 49nu8000. Both are connected via HDMI-ARC and not optical as I have...
  17. Soundbars
    Hi, I am very new to soundbars (and speakers in general). I just finished installing the soundbar, and I am wondering why the DD indicator is never green (it is just off). I updated the firmware to the latest version in Europe. I have tested to play Dolby videos from Youtube for example...

    I have a 5.1 Decoder (image attached), which take optical/AUX input and give 5.1 channel analog output. Each channel of the DAC, I connected to different amps, these amps to different speakers. How i can get 5.1/Atmos output from a USB drive ? Lets say i downloaded a blue-ray rip movie file.
  20. Soundbars
    Samsung HW-N700 Soundbar  Samsung's dedication to improving the fidelity of its soundbars through science has paid generous dividends over the past few years. Its Sound+ series of soundbars provide great looks and fidelity for the money, I reviewed two models last year—the HW-MS650 ( $427.99...
