    Do you guys know if the 520 is able to expand a DD5.1 signal to 7.1 (matrixed of course)? Unfortunately, the HK520 does not apply Logic 7 to a DD5.1 source.

    I believe ONLY the AVR8000 does this

    Angelo is correct. The other H/K models do not support Dolby Digital EX in any way, shape or form. Previously, EX was only available with a full THX license. Dolby changed this at some point, but it was too late to add to these models.

    You could, however, use the old trick of adding an old Pro-Logic receiver to the Left/Right pre-amp outs. Put the receiver in '3 Stereo' mode and voila! Pseudo EX.
