    Hi,

    My 3803 when in pure direct mode still utilises the subwoofer - does anyone know a way of stopping this? or for the particular source change the subwoofer level?

    tar,

    Robin.

    Don't know if this helps but in manual for 2805 it says that in Pure Direct mode you need to manually set the SW channel level to off in order for digital circuitry to be switched off.

    You just need to go into the individual channel level settings for that mode and lower the SW channel to -12db then OFF. :)

    Surely this would only happen if your sub was set to LFE+Main? Is it an option to set it to LFE, would your speakers be fine for movie viewing without the sub to help?

    The Direct & Pure Direct modes on the Denon's bypass all bass management settings and send full range signals to the front channels. There is also a filtered signal sent to the subwoofer at the same time which is defeatable. :)

    Handy really as you can have optimum settings for both movies and music without having to faff about changing settings in the main speaker setup menu. You can adjust channel levels etc independently for each mode.
