    arrived and set up

    quite please but even though I have :rtfm: twice im still little confused

    Subwoofer seems non existant - no bass at all

    Although it tested all my rear speakers im not sure if the rear backs are being used

    also not sure if making most of the sound formats - just put on the dts es version of the haunting - display showing dts ex + thx - is this correct ?

    Hi Duncan,

    Nice amp, i suppose you mean that the auto setup has done all the calibrations for you, if i was you i would go thru and check them and make sure all the levels are correct with an SPL meter and also the distances.
    With ref to the THX DTS-ES that is normal as you must have THX selected and it will work with the DTS signal.

    John :)

    Ok gone through manual set-up this time - speakers did not seem balanced at all correctly with very low rears - same with sub

    sey my front speakers (B&W 603s) to LARGE and all the rest to small

    Not sure what crossover I should use so went for 80

    What about the crossovers on the subs though ? should they be at max ?

    Its all a little overwhelming - just want to be able to listento movies in these new fangled modes

    If you are using the cross over on the amp (best to really) either disable the cross over on your sub if you can, otherwise set it as high as you can.

    Normally you want to set all speakers to small, and bass to both (otherwise the bass from the other speakers doesn't go to the sub) even with floorstanders. Selecting the direct stereo mode for music will then cut out the sub and put the bass back through your front speakers.

    The best way to set the levels is with a SPL meter and either AVIA or DVE, otherwise you can do it buy ear, press the test tone button at the bottom of the remote and turn the amp till you can here the test tone from the front L&R speakers at normal listening levels. Then manually adjust the other speaker levels (using the level button) till they match - you may have to turn the gain up on your sub, in fact thats usually preferable than adding dbs to the amps sub output.

    I would disagree. I would recommend you go with the THX recommendation off all bass to the subwoofer. The fronts will still output bass as well but the sub does most of the work. As with all things this is subjective and I would recommend you listen to both ways and make your own mind up:eek:

    Its the same with THX some people use it all the time and some wont give it the time of day. Try it and see:D

    On my old amp I had my sub connected with BOTh the phono low level connections and also the speaker high level connector

    can I still do this ?

    Yes you can still do that, which ever speakers you wire it up to set as large and set the bass to both, i'm assuming you route it back to the speakers afterwards?

    I'm not sure why you would want to do that though o_O

    Because (and its no matter how many times I am told otherwise) on my old Amp it was better - more bass, deeper bass and much more impact

    Well i think its working fine - still need to tweak the rears a bit though as not too much surround action

    Sounds every bit as good as my a1d though
