On several recommendations from here I bought a Pioneer VSX811, but although the sound on movies (separation, depth, range) is awsome (Dolby Digital-EX(don't like the 7.1)), I think it sounds flat with music. The unit it replaced was a Yamaha DSPA2070, which for movies is obviously old hat (ProLogic Enhanced), but on music I loved the soundfield processing (Church for classics, JazzClub for blues etc.) with the seven speakers (extra front surrounds). I haven't had chance to speak to the supplier yet (sunday, humph!) but they do have a Yamaha DSP-A1 (£350 more, eek!) on their website, which retains the 7 speaker setup and all the soundfield processing, but only lists Dolby Digital, DTS and ProLogic not DD-EX, DTS-ES(EX?) or ProLogic2. With the DSP-A1, will I still get vastly improved movie sound over my old 2070 and will it be a near match for the 811 ? Also, will DVD-A/SACD from my Pioneer 656A be adequately catered for ? Would I be better off looking at the Yamaha RXV 5/6/740 (DD-EX, DTS-ES Matrix/Discrete 6.1, DTS Neo6) and ditching the idea of 7 speakers ? P.S. On the 811, I can't seem to get sound from the rear speakers on DVD-A or SACD, any idea why ?
