    It's in my signature (see below).

    The Tag's black and has the 192KHz DACs, Pro-Logic II and HDCD but not the analogue bypass so I guess it's a AV32R192. I bought it factory refurbished direct from Tag with an 18 month warranty.

    alex,

    do you use your av32r for av or just music?

    If av how did you set it up, internal tones or setup cd/dvd ?

    Cheers
    Bry

    JSW......I use my AV32R for music and AV,and basically just used the Tag setup wizard and an SPL meter for level matching.

    In terms of music(i.e.CD playback)it's good,but much better when the DACs are run at 24/96 using the PT upsampler/interpolator.

    The AV setup couldn't have been easier,compared with the fractured Japanese/English supplied with the Denon receiver I'd had before.

    The only thing that did require a bit of fiddling around was the bass management,to get the sound right in the room,which has lath and plaster walls(250 yr old house to contend with!)

    Thats why I asked, I had a nightmare getting the sub integrated.

    In the end had to turn the gain of the sub down and then set the output on the Tag just so it would turn on the sub.

    Then when sub and mains where both at 75db it still didn't sound right and had to turn sub gain up a couple of notches.

    Sounds much better now but with some music I think the sub could do with going down a notch.

    Cheers

    Interesting seeing your experiences with the sub integration,JSW....I'd previously had a set of Linn Keltiks that I just couldnt get to work properly in the house we'd moved to...they worked fine in the last house,which had brick walls and a suspended wood floor,but no way would they tune into this house.....the only way to use them at all was to roll off the bass at 40Hz,and trim back the level as well.....so they were eventually sold to make way for the current AV system.

    Then began the next set of problems integrating the sub....I'd chosen a REL after demoing a lot of subs at home and finally found one that worked OK in a 250yr old house,and had sufficient adjustability to ensure that.

    As for music and bass Eq....I think a lot of CD's,esp chart CD's,have excessive upper bass eq added to make them sound better on cheap boom-box CD players,and rolling that off again for home consumption on good gear is a pain.

    I still have a prob with the sub which is a peak at 36Hz.

    As I can't play around with the position looks like I may have to get the feedback destroyer to get rid of it.

    Last resort i know but apocalypse has had success with his.
