    Hi,

    I have a Denon AVC-A1SR amp, MF 308 CD, Denon DVD-A1 player and MA gold speakers.

    I am very pleased with the setup. However, I want to be able to tell the amp that any 5.1 output uses the my subwoofer (MA FB212) and that the Pure Direct only uses my front Speakers (MA GR20s) ignoring my subwoofer. I think, reading the manual, that this requires going into setup, which is a pain if you want to switch between CD, TV and DVD fairly quickly and do not want to mess around with the setup in between each one.

    An alternative would be to cut the power to the subwoofer but I am not convinced this is forcing the full signal to the front speakers.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Colin

    Just turn the volume of the subwofer all the way down on the amplifier.
    -Turn on pure direct
    -Press the "enter" button on the remote
    -push down all the way to -12db then off.

    The amp will remember the volume levels for each mode

    The remote on the A1SR is different to the other Denon models. Make sure it's in Amp mode and press the CH Select button on Page 2 (it's on the bottom right of the LCD screen) and then use the little joystick to lower to -12db then OFF like Magking has said. :)
