Might want to check a few searches here because I think I've read the XT32 implementation in the 818 is "crippled" as in it does not include the full sub EQ component? I could be wrong on this. Just a friendly heads up.

FWIW, I've used an onkyo 905 (with XT) with the antimode S-II and it does not sound as good as my 5009 with XT32 alone. I haven't run any graphs, just my opinion.

I will most likely sell mine soon.

ala Yoda...

Why? Upgrading? Not useful? Over promised?

Upgraded to an AVR with Audyssey XT32. Bass is so good with justt XT32 that I figured I don't need it. Too lazy to see how it is with both the Antimode and XT32. biggrin.gif

The Denon AVR-X4000. I like it a lot.

I have a SC-61 pioneer elite on the way, and was considering grabbing a 8033Cinema for my VTF15H.

Couple of questions:

  1. I understand I run the 8033 cal before proceeding with MCACC, but what about sub gain control which wont be tweaked until you see MCACC results? Does that have no bearing on the Anti Mode Cal.
  2. Is there anything in MCACC I should have OFF when using the anti mode?

The manual just makes it like you hook it up, let it do it's thing for 10 mins or so, and then it'll apply that room correction to the sub channel coming in going forward. I get that the signal runs through the Anti Mode and it applies the filters (same principal as a calibrated video processor before the display), but I guess the gain setting is what I do not get. Or does the sub gain setting have no bearing on the room response, meaning the sub will report the same response in a room whether the gain knob is a 25% or 50%?

Thanks.

Gain or level match the subs first. Run Anti-Mode in front of MCACC and then run MCACC.

Once turned on, Anti-Mode runs through about eight iterations and then automatically turns off. If you have REW, put REW in RTA mode and you can watch Anti-Mode go through each of it's sweep cycles.

OK. I only have one sub, so it may be best to run MCACC, determine what is a good volume setting on the sub by where MCACC sets the trim level, then I can go back and run the 8033 setup, then MCACC?

Thanks. My current sub volume was set with an iteration of Audyssey, so it is probably fine where it is.

I'm reading the manual for the antimode and I'm a little confused about the lift settings.

Do they boost frequencies, cut them, or both? I see the part where it says it boosts frequencies by 8db. But there's also another section saying it cuts them by -3db. Is that only when both LED's are on?

Also, if anyone knows any sites I can get the 80333S2 cheaper than dspeaker that would be great.

Brian - did you ever try this? What is your opinion on 818 vs. Antimode?

Got my 2.0 from here. Very good service. And the DSpeaker is very fast to answer emails if you have any questions..

Lifting boosts those freqs and also applies a subsonic filter to cut out below 10hz freqs.

I personally use the 15-25hz lift setting for my dual subs as they are 12inch driver with passive radiator (PR) in each box.

Here is a cut from the manual-

-4.2.1. “Flat”
The first lifting EQ setting is no lifting, “flat.” Neither of the LEDs 'LIFT 25' nor 'LIFT
35' is lit. In this setting, the target response is flat from 5 to 148 Hz.

-4.2.2. Lifting 15-25Hz
In lifting 15-25 mode, when the LED “LIFT 25” is lit, the AntiMode
will boost
frequencies between 15 and 25 Hz (max. 7dB at 20Hz). This will also activate digital
infasonic filter, which will filter out frequencies below 10Hz, that can be dangerous to
ported subs without proper protection.

-4.2.3. Lifting 25-35Hz
Third mode, lifting 25-35
similarly boosts range 25-35Hz (max. 7dB at 30Hz) on
subwoofer. This mode is active when the LED LIFT 35 is on. This will also activate
digital infasonic filter, which will filter out frequencies below 10Hz.
It is easiest to find out which of the lifting settings gives best result by simply
listening. Lifting below 35Hz could be useful for reflex subwoofers, which have port
tuning above 30Hz, but the lowest frequencies are attenuated to the listening
position. With music, 'flat' is probably the best option, as it gives the most accurate
transient response. Lifting below 25Hz could be applicable for a large subwoofer,
which has 6dB
point too high because of suboptimal positioning.

Thanks for responding to that 5 month old post!

Is it easy to select these different modes? You have to do all kinds of different button presses.

It's easy with 1 button that selects the 25, 35 or Flat setting and the leds light to confirm which is selected! The other button bypasses the Antimodes EQ altogether.
