    Hi Tobias

    Late Night and Enhanced Dialogue along with other discrete audio options are only available on the SOUNDBAR. I have forwarded your feedback to our Quality Assurance Team to determine if this can be added to the new POWERNODE w/HDMI since it now does DOLBY decode. If we are able to add this, it will be in a future firmware update.

    Thanks for #LivingHiFi

    Thanks for the clarification Tony, 

    I've tested different inputs now and I do believe that the audio actually is less dynamic than my old setup when coming from my TV (both hdmi and optical) while streaming from spotify sounds better than ever, which is what I was after in the first place.

    But now I have a follow-up question/request: I can't set a/v lipsync delay to anything less than 50ms, would it be possible to enable a lower min-setting?

    Thanks for the feedback. You cannot set the lip/sync delay to less than 50ms. In researching and developing we found this to be the magic threshold to match lip-sync yet not have audio dropouts from packets not making it to other wireless speakers in time. This setting has not changed from what is also in the SOUNDBAR.

    I figured as much, however I'm currently running wired speakers only, which if I understand correctly should not be impacted by those issues, so would it be possible to either implement some kind of automatic or manual override for this setting allowing those of us who can to set it lower?

  • There is not. When I say wireless, I do not mean network cable wireless, I mean speaker cable wireless. Network packet delays happen at the router regardless of medium to the player.

    Okay, yeah I can understand that, however, what I meant was that I'm using plain old passive speakers that are wired to the speaker ports on the amplifier itself, but I can see how that signal still needs the same delay in order to keep everything in sync regardless of speaker setup.
    Thank you for patiently answering my questions Tony!
