I'm pretty sure that it's the "registered" trademark. Looks like somebody totally clueless started with a copy of an old description. On the web site it says DD PL II (vs IIx) and I doubt that it doesn't have IIx. Also the typo on the 8 channels.

Not sure if that is enough to upgrade my current 5500 in my 2nd system. The HDCD decoding looks interesting, but I think that's about it. Maybe the DACs are a little better, couldn't really tell. I guess the variable crossover points would be nice. Heck, I'm only driving some NHT in-wall/in-ceiling speakers and think it does fine. Very interesting though...

JonnyV,


When I first saw that statement in their website, I though they were referring to different crossover points for fronts, center, surrounds, etc, which would be great. But a few days later, when they included a link to the user guide, I was very disappointed to see that it is just the 80/100/120Hz single standard parameter... :(


Regards,


Fernando
