    Was Dolby's plan to restrict non-native upmixing on Atmos implemented?

    Marantz stopped charging for Auro 3D once Dolby and DTS came out with their own versions. That started with the AV7704, the model after mine. I guess I kind of assumed it had more or less lost its value.

    I'll have to try this on my AV7703. I do know that I have it programmed to play back Dolby soundtracks of all sorts that aren't Atmos in DD + Dolby Surround, and all DTS soundtracks in DTS + Neural: X, since those are the codecs that match the source soundtrack. It just makes sense to me to...
