I have recently become the proud owner of an Anthem MRX300. I thought I had set it up perfectly until I played Life of Pi last night.
The soundtrack on this film contains 7.1 DTS HD Master audio. The front of the amp identified this correctly as DTS HD Master 3/4 so the correct signal is being supplied by the source.
My problem is that the amp would only output standard DTS 5.1.
I have tested Avengers Assemble as it has the same soundtrack format as Life of Pi and I have the same problem - only standard DTS 5.1 again.
I only have 5.1 speakers (rather than 7.1) but surely this doesn’t mean I cant enjoy HD soundtracks that contain more than 5.1 channels?
This certainly wasn’t the case with the Yamaha amp that I’ve just upgraded from.
Please help, surely the Anthem can play an HD 7.1 soundtrack over 5.1 speakers?
Thanks in advance.
