3805 pure direct and Sub setting for HT



I have this nagging annoyance. I like the pure direct sound for Cd's but I have to disable the sub in the speaker setup area every time I want to listen to pure direct mode. I use the receiver for HT also so I have to leave the SUB ON for the family.

Is there a easier way to disable the sub for pure direct and enable it for HT.

Certainly on my 3803 there is no way of doing it.
I've always thought it a bit daft really.

You can disable the sub for Pure Direct Mode only. Just go into the individual channel level adjustment for that mode and lower the SW channel to -12db then OFF. If I remember correctly you press the CH Select Enter button on the remote and then scroll through FL, FR etc. Then use the cursor arrow keys to change the levels up or down.

Ha, I can do it on mine too.

Agreed :smashin:
And a neutral/ non-committal one too, that has a ~ in it.
I've often wanted one of those, when I'm not sure if I agree or disagree with someone. You have to go one way or the other, if you know what I mean.

My sub goes off just by selecting pure direct. How are you set up?
