I purchased demo Pioneer Elite 92 form 670 @ BB 4 days ago. I currently own a Pioneer Elite 55thx. Why did I spend this money and I do not notice a great difference on music or movies. What am I doing wrong? My setup:Rotel 980 bx 120 watt amp preamping the front speakers.(Kimber Cable) Def Tech 7004 front and def tech center,Atlantic tech rears,Outlaw sub,PS3 used for music and movies connected with Monoprice 1.3a hdmi cables. The PS3 is set up using pcm for audio.Problem:The music on the old 55 elite sounds awesome! The movies sound good. The new 92 the music sounds great,but very slight drop off.The movies sound good and I notice a slight Increase in sound quality going from DD to pcm. The Sony PS3 apparently does the decoding and passes it to the receiver.The receiver shows PCM on the front panel.Is this all there is or am I doing something wrong? I am about to take the 92 back.Help! Conclusion: I am more a music man 70/30 than movies;however, I want the full experience.Is it the receiver? Is it the way I am connected to the PS3?
