Ok, got it last night and set her up. MUCH more involved then my old 811. Did a basic trial run thru with MCACC. Set ALL my speakers to large for some reason (jbl E80,s EC35 center, e10 SURROUNDS, n24 REAR SURROUNDS 8"HK SUB). Will take a while to really dial this in. Overall sounded pretty good, but still needs some setup work (there is a lot to deal with). More natural sounding then the 811, always needed loudness turned on). Still sounds fuller (more bass) with loudness on, but I haven't really turned it up yet either. ??? DTS, can you have PLIIx on top of DTS or is it only DD that you can use it. When I popped in a DVD with DTS it always came up as DTS:Neo 6. DLPIIx over DD5.1 DEFINATELY used my rear surrounds MUCH more then the 811. For those with 7.1, do you ALWAYS use DPLIIx with DD 5 or 6.1 (DVD and or DD broadcasts)? Also, HD and DVD via component looked noticeably better then thru the 811 (27mhz vs 40mhz I guess makes a difference. Overall, pretty happy with it for the 2hours I spend with it late last night, but I will really have to get into it tonight and tomorrow. I like the remote and the learning function. May not need a different universal remote that I thought I would. I will certainly post more once I tweak it a bit more. Altho I did get more thump out of my sub with the 811 and loudness on, I am having trouble figuring out why I am not getting the same. Maybe the 80vs 100 crossover on the 811 is making a difference. My sub stinks anyway, but I live in Apt now, so an SVS is out of the question (but a 10" Dayton may not be). Anyway, any thoughts from 1014 users (especially advice) would be much appreciated.
