  1. Any differences in quality/functionality? Or is it just a different manufacturer?
  2. What's the difference between this and the C4-WALL7?
  3. Any interest at $3,000? Or some other amount?
  4. Thank you @jesseasmith and @Crustyloafer. I was hoping there was a more cost effective solution. At that price point it seems as though it makes more sense to pursue the downmixing version instead. Thanks again for your recommendation
  5. The 2.0 location is zone 2 on the receiver that is also receiving 5.1. This receiver doesn’t downmix zone 2, hence the need
  6. DTV Genie Mini (C61K-700) I’m trying to avoid reducing audio output quality b/c I want Dolby out of the HDMI connection. Trying to send the audio to separate 5.1 and 2.0 locations
  7. What’s the best way to convert a Dolby digital audio stream to the “stereo PCM” connection required by a Leaf matrix that accepts S/PDIF inputs and not RCA inputs? All of the DACs I see convert to RCA. Can I use a 2:1 splitter to take it to the matrix or is a different conversion required? Not sure if “stereo PCM” is digital 2.0 or analog. I have this Gefen DAC, but not sure if I can make it work. Sorry for what I think is a pretty dumb question https://www.gefen.com/product/gefen-tv-digital-analog-decoder-GTV-DD-2-AA
  8. Bought this before I realized how much better off I would be with the D version. Device is obviously pre-owned, but in great working condition. Can provide rack ears if interested, but does not include baluns. Not sure what it's worth, maybe $3,500? Interested in buying (or trading for) LU862D if you happen to have one. Please DM me Thanks
  9. No one out there looking to sell 4K matrix? What about without downmixing?
  10. Understood on the lowest common denominator, although in this case (no D), I think it would potentially mean there’s no sound unless I downgrade the sound output from the C61K (Genie mini), or as you suggest, add an external down mixer. Samsung support told me over web chat today that my TV can downmix a 5.1 signal to 2.0 and play it out of the TV’s speakers, but I’m still a bit skeptical. When I tried to check with my existing mini setup (mini direct to TV via hdmi) I saw the TV could support “Dolby Audio”, but it’s not real clear to me what that is. Thanks for the response @Matt Lowe
  11. Will a TV receive and play sound when hooked up via BaseT to an LUxxx "non-D" matrix when the source audio is 5.1? Asked another way, will the TV downmix the 5.1 audio input to 2.0 and play the sound from the TV speakers? Or do I need to make sure the input into the TV is 2.0? If it matters, the TV is a 2016 Samsung KS 8000 series. Reason I am asking is I'm looking at adding a non-D matrix to my setup that will distribute video to 3 A/V receivers (with TVs) and 1-2 TVs that are not hooked up to a/v systems (TV speakers only in bedrooms). I'm wondering if the absence of a/v systems necessitates an LUxxxD (or forfeiting surround sound). Thank you
  12. That was my thinking too, have been looking into it this morning. Do some work better than others? Is it safe to assume the matrix can't look thru the scaler to the TV? Will this add a level of lag to the system? My 1080 TV is a room over from a 4K and I'd like them to be in sync if possible (significant factor in purchasing a matrix). I like the $99 price tag on https://www.hdtvsupply.com/4k-down-converter.html over the $399 price tag on https://www.avproedge.com/4k-updown-scaler.html, which I've seen recommended elsewhere on this forum. At $399, seems like replacing the TV would make more sense
  13. Special thanks to @livitup who discovered that hooking up a 1080 TV with other 4K TVs to a 4K matrix (LU) scales the feed down to 1080 for all TVs. The video feed quality is not driven by what TVs are on at the time, it’s driven by what is hooked up to the matrix. To maintain 4K out of the matrix you would have to section off the 1080 TV via an EDID group. I understand this would isolate sources that could only be used with the 1080 TV. Appreciate the help @livitup
