    Have now bought the CX-A5100 and had previously CX-A5000. Will address the differences in function as they are the most interesting. The menus look a little different with leaner fonts for text. ARC does not turn on automatically which means you have to set the AUDIO input ARC uses manually or programmed into the remote control. HDMI inputs are closer together than the CX-A5000 as hd EZ lock and similar products can not be used. If you use the Dolby Pro Logic so put all speakers. Only works with Dolby Pro Logic. The other Dolby Pro Log II or IIx provides 5.1 and 7.1 sound. Feel that the image and sound has been further enhanced compared with the CX-A5000. The differences are not huge so if you fail to be at the change may not be seen or felt. Think that subbasarna handled better at this than the CX-A5000, so you get more bass than before. Do not know what they did on SR P1 but the reporter's voice had started two subbasarna. Has ceiling speakers and've tried Dolby Atmos. Provides higher sound when all speakers involved to produce all the sounds and no channel is secondary to the DSP sounds.

    Very good preamp that desstum is easy to use, to my wife's delight. Very smooth with stage settings while you can have 2st Pattern. Surprises me possitivt in 2ch, and the film is the amazing so I have nothing to complain about. Now I have not had time to get up ceiling speakers so atmos I can not judge yet.
