  1. I assume you are asking about the Kanex Pro HDMI de-embedder. The answer is no, it does not downmix.
  2. Is autoswitch enabled? Sometimes, it gets silly and you have to press the play button on "Now playing". Try another optical port by temporarily moving one Phantom. Also, check optical on TV is on, try another optical cable. If that does not work, then use nuclear option of erase setup. If no success, log support ticket with Devialet, telling them all these things you have tried.
  3. Let your ears be the judge! Keep the Rotel since you prefer the sound...
  4. Use Spark App, check whether Optical is enabled on the Dialog or Phantom that you have connected to.

To be consistent, am suggesting that only new list pricing, no used pricing, no discounts. Hence, SGR CX4F Mk II now moved to to the Beyond $30K section ( @GregWormaldcheekily added to $20-30K section). I added the original SGR CX3B Mk II entry. Since there are already all-in-ones in the list, I have now added Devialet Phantom Golds.
  6. Don't know, each board is slightly different. If you are worried about the surge protection, time to get a new one.
  7. It appears your surge light is on. There is a reset button somewhere to reset it.
  8. What NAS are you using? Did you share the NAS folder with your PC? For example, with a Synology NAS, on Win 10, easiest is to use Synology Assistant to map a NAS folder as a drive on Win10.
  9. Amazon AU Prime Day deals Star Wars Complete Saga (DIGISTACK) (9 DISC) (Blu-ray) $51 (approx after 40% off for AU Prime members) https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B01A9R71RS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_dn.kDbPW0CAX0 The Lord Of The Rings: Trilogy (Extended Editions) (15 Discs) (Blu-ray) $48 (after 40% off) https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B0776K3MFX/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_1p.kDb1H5ZGYS Today only, lots more titles
  10. Wimbledon, no question. I had the TV on Wimbledon and the tablet on the cricket last night and the end of both matches were about the same time.
  11. to the forum Technology has gone more complicated, whether it has improved is in eye of beholder. Suggest looking at a used, non Atmos AVR rather than get a new one.
  12. I did get my wish! But am feeling the effects now of watching Wimbledon's longest ever final. Roger had his chances, shame he could not take them...
  13. to the forum. To me, WAF is an important consideration in my stereo and home theatre purchases and my systems are in a shared family room. However, there are many who have dedicated rooms, can treat their rooms and buy whatever they like. They are very interested in their gear and thus are very active on the forum. WAF is subjective and you will unlikely see a WAF rating on a review. Reviewers are self selecting in that they are enthusiastic about the gear and hence write about it; WAF is often far down the list of criteria. Don't be disheartened by the lack of posts on WAF on audio gear. There are many here who consider WAF just as important...
  14. When I had both my HT and stereo sharing the mains and subs, it was an absolute nightmare. I use Cable Buddies to tag both ends of cable and tie up slack. Not cheap but they make life simpler especially when you take things in and out when re-organising the setup. https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Buddy®-5-pack-Black-Organizer-x/dp/B00288OOQI I have since separated the systems and drastically simplified the stereo setup. That is one way to get rid of spaghetti junction.
