My current processor, the Integra DHC-80.3 9.2 is soldiering on flawlessly. It does lack Dolby Atmos, but it does have front Height channels, and front Width channels.
But when activating the front height channels, for some strange reason the rear L&R surrounds become Front L&R Width channels, so you lose part of the 7.1 surround (I think).
If the full 7.1 surround would work, with the front L&R Height channels active, I would simply keep the Integra.
My theater sound system is as good as most commercial theaters, maybe even better than a few. I don't know how much more improvement Dolby Atmos would provide over my current set up. And, it is a cost question...does the reward justify a $2700 expense?
Like my new Epson 5050UB. Yes, It's 4K. But not really that much better than my not-so-old Panasonic 1080P projector. Not $2900 better, for sure.
The new Yammy arrived yesterday. Spent most of the afternoon getting it set up in the theater.
1. Very nice, high quality (heavy) build.
2. Great remote. It has an auto-backlight feature that is triggered when you pick it up.
3. Great sound.
4. Still working thru the menu, but it is fairly straight forward.
Okay...here is the problem (again!), lip sync. It is a serious issue:
Found what might be the problem, and it is the audio processing. Either the DMP-UB900, or the Yamaha. I ran the audio from the DMP-UB900 thru the L&R analog output into a two channel analog system. Ran the video, doing a side-by-side listen and watch test. There was a major (MAJOR) echo (delay) of the processed audio. Zero delay in the all analog, two channel stereo audio.
If we only use two channel stereo, the movies are perfect. Unwatchable with 7.2.2 processing.
Most broadcast cable TV is Ok, with a couple exceptions.
I am hoping someone could help me with this issue. I have had my receiver for just over two years now. The problem started small, but has gradually gotten worse and worse.
Basically, the audio cuts out for a few seconds and then returns. Sometimes it does so every 10 minutes, sometimes...
Hi, I just introduced myself with my first two posts in the presentation thread. Excuse me for my English as a translator.
I need to ask you: my Yamaha rx-A730 starts up well, but it takes 15 minutes for the icons of the speakers to appear on the display and for the speakers to be heard, it has...
Okay...I grew up surrounded by music, playing in several bands in junior high, high school, and college.
My music teacher was very much into building audio kits, Dynaco.
In my adult years, I still play musical instruments, and attend concerts on a frequent basis.
So, that was my intro to...
In a word, no. Before you call me crazy (or worse), I have been looking at this in my personal home theater. Our equipment is current state-of-the-art, 4K. Including the processor (Yamaha CX-A5200), projector (Epson 5050UB), and player (Panasonic DMP-UB900).
I even did a side-by-side shoot out...
I currently have 11 speakers with 2 Subs. I have a Marantz SR6012 which has 9 Channels with 11 Channel Processing, thus I have 2 speakers that mimic another 2 speakers. Can I go as simply with a 2-Channel Amp to get a true 11 Speaker Dolby Atmos Set-up?
I would rather not spend another 2k on a...
