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.

I am looking at the new Adventage receivers/pre processors from Yamaha. When a speaker system/room has been calibrated using the YPAO measurement on ’flat’, then selecting ‘manual’, to tweak the subwoofer level and Eq using REW and any other adjustments, I cannot be sure that the YPAO...
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...
As a neat solution I am looking at a custom 5 channel power amp to power the front 3 speakers in my setup, and an IB which I will install. The amp would be a 5 x 300 watt power amp. This gives me 2 channels with which to power the IB with.
Does anyone have any thoughts as to if they...
I'm a new member here at the shack and am looking to upgrade my older Yamaha RX-V750. I've been doing a lot of research an several forums and think I want to go with either an Onkyo 805 or 705. I've been reading that the 06 models are not as good as the 05 models but the problem is, I'm...
