My room is not suitable for Atmos I have explored that option before when I had a guy round from a home cinema shop. What I was asking about though would the LX901 still decode Atmos even without the addition speakers?

Dolby Atmos without Atmos speakers will switch to Dolby TrueHD.

Did you try turning the volume up? Different amps have different sweet spots for volume, and in some you need to crank it up a bit more than usual. Don't rely on the number what indicates volume.

Yes, I did find that out with these two amps. The 81 is a pure beast in terms of sound though. The left and right front speakers kick butt!

I assume you mean when using your LX901. If the sound format is set to stereo then the sub won’t make any sound. You need to cycle through the sound formats using the remote.
Yes, basically pulling out the sub cable and putting it in again fixed it after I fiddled with the rest of it. Seems to very fussy that cable I have had no sub sound a lot!

Got it working but iTunes still sounded better on my 81 way more powerful surround sound.
Tbh I’ve found the same with my Susano compared to the LX88 I had before. The LX88 did Atmos and it was good, the Susano is a similar age to your amp so does not, but overall it sounds much better; even games with Dolby Atmos sound tracks through my Xbox One X sound amazing, my amp outputs Dolby Digital Pro Logic IIx and the sound is still all around me, just doesn’t have “Dolby Atmos” on the display!

Yes, I was thinking about your 88 yesterday with Atmos and nearly asked you a question but then it went out of mind. I reckon for sure my Susano was a dud!
