Dear all, I currently have an Onkyo SR-508 AVR and Cambridge Audio Minx S215 speakers. I have never been able to achieve the clarity I would like with speech. No end of fiddling with the Onkyo's dynamic volume and dynamic EQ and boosting the centre speaker - the speech always seems muffled, muddy and/or low in the mix. So I return frustratingly the old fashioned technique of guessing when an explosion is going to happening slamming the volume down, before turning it right back up again so that I might following some of the plot. So I am currently looking to change my amp and possibly speakers as well. I have seen good reviews of the Pioneer SC-LX57 but no real user experience. There is a youtube video that suggests that there are no 'on screen' menus and so therefore in order to see what listening mode you are in or what the current volume is you have to look at the devices LCD. Is this true? What are you opinions on the device? Ability to achieve clarity of speech? Any other units I should be looking at? By way of speakers I am looking at the q acoustics q7000i or 2000i - maybe I should replace the speakers first? Any insight is much appreciated as I am confused.
