Think of them as presets meant to recall the same sound mode as what was selected for the previous playback.
So, for example, there is no difference between these modes -- they sound the same?Think of them as presets meant to recall the same sound mode as what was selected for the previous playback.
Thanks. I should have said "Makes sense as I can find no Denon or Dolby upmixer documentation that says otherwise or details what the differences would be." I have an Atmos-enabled AVR-X6700H. If I had a non-Atmos model with Dolby Pro Logic II, I'm sure the documentation would talk about the differences between the DPII Game, Movie, and Music modes.It's documented in the manuals in the "Sound mode that can be selected for each input signal" section.
In some cases there are no differences, but there can be differences. For example, on the non-Atmos models different DPII modes are available.
Rob retested for episode #798 with the modern upmixers and could hear no difference between the modes, saying that his advice was based on PLII-era differences between modes that must not apply to modern upmixers. It's one of many things I like about Rob: his willingness to test, and his willingness to reconsider his position.However the guys on AV-Rant podcast (who seem to be very knowledgeable, especially Rob) report that there are subtle difference with more reverb added to the movie modes and actually recommend game mode for movie watching.
