Thanks, Guys.
I agree with most of your observations, especially that it's hard to keep a good sonic image in mind during the momentary silense when switching between DPLIIM and DTS Neo:6. Nevertheless, I'm starting to think that the DTS setting sounds a bit "thinner".

Anyway, it's a fun problem to have. smile I think in general I'm going to stick with DPLII M.
