Sweet! Thanks for the quick reply. The next thing I am most interested in is how the dynamic tone mapping for HDR will work especially for those of using projectors. If it provides effective DTM for those of using older HDR projectors like my JVC X550R this could really be a must have. I was just bragging on the Pioneer Elite SC-95 thread how happy I still am with my AVR and now this thing drops...Yes. However, the new X6700H is the only 2020 model that can expand to 13 channels. Refer to p. 65 and p. 72 in the Owner's manual.
