All it says is Advanced MCACC and it’s separate from the Dirac setup -I haven’t tried it though, I had Pro in the past. I was running 7.1 on my SC95 then 7.2 - I was running 5.2.4 in the end before the 505 And I settled on 7.1.2 at the moment. I haven’t set up the second sub yet but may hold off for now as I think I want to get a 7.2.4 going at some point and set it up then. I think you’d still need the mini dsp if you wanted independent sub control and some type of 2 channel for 2 of the Atmos channels. Aside from the subs all the other channels should be detected by Dirac. I had to do some tweaking on the sub levels after Dirac was done but everything else was pretty spot on. The overall processing on the height speakers is much better on this unit so that’s why I switched it up.

Does anyone know if this AVR works with Logitech Harmony Hub or any other universal remote that is compatible with Alexa?

I downloaded the user manual for the LX505 but it says Alexa is only capable of adjusting the volume or skipping songs. That seems like a very limited command set for such a versatile AVR.

But I was thinking of connecting a universal remote to it such as the Logitech Harmony Hub, and therefore getting a much bigger command set from Alexa. Has anyone tried using the Logitech Harmony Hub to the LX505?

Basically, I want to use Alexa to switch inputs on the receiver. I want it to be as simple as saying "Alexa, switch to cable box" or "Alexa, switch to outdoor security camera" and things like that.

Curious as well on Logitech Harmony getting an update for the receiver. The remote for mine isn't working at all, thankfully I was able to get the Pioneer app to work.

So far very happy with the receiver, pushing my Goldenear's wonderfully.
