    Hello,

    I recently bought a yamaha rxv 1400 rds as a replacement for my yamaha dspa2. I'm still a tad dissapointed with the 2 channel performance in combination with my kef reference 2 (89 db / 4ohm). I know the kef's need better amps but since i have a young daughter i have to save hard ::clap: for a power amp.

    I noticed that the autosetup with microphone offered improvement when i did chose front equalizing instead of flat but what can i manually set to improve the sound?

    Right now it sounds worse than the 6 years old dspa2 altough the channel separation is better as is the detail. I'm just missing soundstage and impact and even if i bring it back to the shop i have to buy the initial price :lesson: once again to the nad 763 and i would rather save for a good seperate poweramp.

    Thanks and help me saving

    :thumbsup:

    Ok Brambo I dont want to make you feel as if you are sucking eggs, im just wondering what other settings you have setup on it?

    Amp set for 6 ohms? as it cant be set for 4.
    Using direct stereo mode?
    Have you used it much as amps need some time to 'bed in'
    As you said you have excellent speakers:thumbsup: but they need loadsa juice.

    The only other options are trading the yammy for a Harmon/Kardan or getting a seperate amp for stereo.
    :D
