I'm confused (no change there then!)

    It doesn't take much to confuse me these days but this one is a real pita! I'm not sure whether to post here, DVD players, or Amps and receivers! Anyway, I'll start here!

    I had a spare half hour this morning and thought I'd checkout my velodyne using the test tone cd provided by MS.

    This is the first time I've tried this since I bought my new Denon 2900 player. The set up is Denon Player to Denon 3805 to Velodyne.

    Armed with my SPL meter I played the CD. As expected there were peaks and troughs through the range. I checked the setup on the DVD player and the speakers were set to Large so I changed them to small and tried again with much the same results. I have already set the speakers to small on the amp so by way of an experiment I switched the sub off and played the tests again just using my Kef TDM series speakers.

    Surprisingly, sounds could be heard from them as low as 27hz with a considerable output at 30hz and above. I don't seem to have a cut-off of 80hz like I should have, on either the amp or the player! I'll check the amp this evening

    I ran out of time and had to come into work before I could investigate further.

    The other problem I had was with the test tone in the player menu. I made the mistake of using the 3805 remote to control the player and accidently powered off the player whilst in the middle of the channel test tone sequence. When I powered it back on I was unable to get a test tone from the player, just silence. Any ideas if I have done something serious to amp/player?
