Re: DAC installed to get analog out on my second zone

Hi Selden, thanks for they DAC recommendations, Gefen arriving today. My 3050 arrives today or tomorrow. Was wondering if there was a way, or a trick, to copy settings from my 2020 to my 3050. Maybe to a USB thumb drive. Since all my settings would be identical on the new reciever, it would sure save me a lot of time. Thanks as per usual.

Unfortunately, I suspect that the internal data format is not compatible between the two receiver models.

The Web interface for the 3050 includes a backup/recovery option which can be used to copy its internal settings to the computer. See page 113 of the 3050's owner's manual.

Unfortunately, the 2020's Web interface doesn't include that feature. It can only save and restore from a memory internal to the receiver.

Thanks Selden. Time would be saved, but where's the fun in that

Re: DAC installed to get analog out on my second zone

Thank you thank you Selden. Gefen DAC installed, works great. Has a light for inputs coax or Toslink, doesn't seem to run hot as many reviews have said, and again most of the reviews that I read were 5 years old.
On to my next question:
I currently have a 5.1 setup on my 2020, with 2 subs. Thinking about adding a pair of Atmos speakers which would sit on the top of my credenza over left and rights aiming towards the ceiling. Is this setup 5.1.2 that I've seen referred to a lot on the forums? Would it be OK to place the speakers as indicated above? They would be about a foot from the ceiling and aimed after reflection back to the sweet spot.
Your thoughts are very much appreciated and thank you again for the DAC advice. I could if necessary install these Atmos speakers in ceiling, but WAF might not allow for that. This new setup will be with my 3050.
