So I think it’s out there now that Onkyo chose Atmos over XT32 because its architecture cannot handle processing both. So my conspiracy theory is Onkyo may not be the immediate bad guy. But somewhere buried deep in a contract clause Onkyo is required to carry Atmos as a requirement of carrying any dolby product. I can imagine a receiver without out xt32 (barely) but no dolby processing? Onkyo would be in real trouble.


Denon can do it .... that's all I'm saying

Maybe there were issues getting audyssey to work correctly with atmos? I can guess that adding an extra 4 channels to monitor would cause some complications. Would Onkyo have pushed products to market before audyssey was ready to work with atmos?

Doubtful. The Audyssey process isn't driven by channel count in what it does. Both Atmos and Audyssey require dsp resources, though. Its conjecture but possible the two couldn't be handled with current dsp resource overhead. Audyssey as taxed DSP resources in the past, which is why we couldn't have XT32, dynamic volume and dynamic EQ in a 2006 version...couldn't run all that on hardware of that vintage.

Re: Onkyo Hits the Summer with High-End Gear (TX-NR3030, TX-NR1030, PR-SC5530)

Ok I have owned a couple of Onkyo pre/proccessors. They've been great to patch surround into my system, consisting of audiophile pre and power amp weighted in favor of 2 channel listening. Looking on the Denon site I'm not seeing a pre/processor just receivers. So the dilemma, for me, would be giving up my creamy much loved Bryston amps for the Denon receiver or slipping in the new Onkyo proc. Another option of course, would to be to wait, let the dust settle and see what happens. Maybe lack of Audessy would not be a deal killer after all. Would like to read a serious review before I make a move. Another thought, if the Denon's Audessy really does provide a substantive improvement over Onkyo's proprietary eq, then the receiver could function as a pre/proc and provide the power for the atmos channels.

Why not Marantz?

Yes I was looking at their pre/pro. It's a grand more than the Onkyo and would require some additional amps.
