    I just put my deposit down on my black AV20, but I'm wondering what processing modes it supports. I can't seem to track down a definitive list. Even their website is missing it, as far as I can tell. Obviously DD and DTS, but what else?

    Also - what kind of balanced interconnects are people using to connect to their amps? I'm thinking of going with wickedcables custom made XLRs.

    Also - When is the next software update scheduled? Are there cumulative release notes anywhere? The website only lists the last two.

    One last Also - How do I use the two sub outs with just one sub? Do I need to do this?

    The unit supports
    DD 5.1
    DTS 5.1
    DD EX
    DTS Matrix
    DPL

    It does not support as of yet
    DPL II
    DTS Discrete

    It has a short selection of artificial modes (church hall etc) and a mode they call Cinemalogic which puts 2 channel through all 7 speakers

    If you have only one sub then plug it into either sub out.

    I have not used the balanced outputs.

    Thanks for the tip Ron. Those are really cheap, but how do they sound?

    While it's not a true surround format we shouldn't forget THX Ultra (with Ultra2 coming soon).
    oh, and stereo. [​IMG]

    I have my Active 40s connected to the AVM 20 via 25ft XLR cables and they sound FINE! Your mileage may vary of course.
