I have just got a new surround sound set-up made of  http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=109&cp_id=10906&cs_id=1090601&p_id=10565&seq=1&format=2 and  http://www.onkyousa.com/Products/model.php?m=TX-SR313&class=Receiver . Now I am trying to make sure I am getting the most out of them. 

 

Their main use will be for movies, but I will also listen to music. The first question I have is about my xbox one and what audio setting I should have it set at, from what I have read 5.1 uncompressed is the best, but the options have confused me a little. Using it as a blu-ray player i should be able to use a lossless 5.1 audio format? Before I had the xbox one i had a  http://www.lg.com/us/blu-ray-players/lg-BP220-blu-ray-dvd-player/technical-specifications that I figured I would move upstairs. I should receive the same quality out of both, right?

 

I would also be using netflix to play movies and I would also like to know the best setting on my xbox to get the best sound. 

 

For my att uverse set-top box has a surround sound option, but was wondering if anyone knew what quality or format it puts out, just curious?

 

And my last question is when listening to music should i use pro logic II or neo 6 or straight stereo or is there a better option?

I'd recommend posting in the xbox1 forum about settings for that. 5.1 uncompressed sounds right, but there may be more to it than that; not having a Xbox I can't say.


Setting for music depends on the source. For stereo sources, which seems to be what you're asking, Prologic II or DTS Neo 6 will give you simulated surround. Most in this forum prefer that, but elsewhere you'll find people who believe that music should be heard as presented and not be processed in any way. This is a personal choice; try them out and see what you like. When using DPL II, make sure to play w/ the settings. Personally, I've found it helps to increase the width, which gives puts less music in the center. Panorama is a feature that really puts more music in the surrounds; personally, I think it does too much, but again YMMV and your ears are the best judge.

Thanks for the feedback, and I didn't realize there was an Xbox area will definitely check that out. As for the music yes I was talking about stereo and I will use my ears as final say.
