Working on it, working on it.....


Any recommendations? To save some bucks, I'm looking at a refurb X4000 from A4L......

Call sound distributor in Vegas. Cheapest place when I got my new X4000.
I don't think you get warranty from A4L.

Ok but might it sound better? Seems like doing too much EQ with the mini is causing a negative effect on the sound.

I dont think you will notice much of a difference between Audyssey XT32 and the pro kit but I haven't used the pro kit.

I wonder if everyone would be having problems if they were using the balanced version? Seems like the unbalanced kit has some limitations.

I've pretty much given up on it now. Maybe when I get a new AVR it will behave differently, but I doubt it.
Has anyone tried a different DSP than MiniDSP? I seen some others, but more expensive.

I am using a minidsp 10x10 with my 4 triax's and so far it is working great.

From all accounts audyssey pro has very little advantage over xt32 in the newest gen receivers

Hop, I have read through it many time while playing with it. Each time learning a little more. That's what helped me to finally get the ASIO working over JAVA. My biggest issue is sometimes I don't know why I am taking the steps I am taking and what it's supposed to lead to. I am no sound engineer, just a hobbiest with a good ear. Still debating on the MiniDSP addition or adding a Y-splitter to each sub. I am getting clipping at the higher volumes so I don't know if that would help. By the way, that is what REW is saying, I can't hear the clipping.

To try and explain the discrepancy in levels; are these measurements of CH4 (LFE)? If they are, you are good to go on SPL calibration....if not, there's still something wrong.

Don't bother with those Magnolia guys....they know less than you, I guarantee it.

This is just a hobby, so do I just google a mic boom? Also, I don't know what CH4 means, so I am not sure if I am doing it. My SPL meter is a simple one that Tom recommended. I am sure it's fine though. My only concern is there is never a steady noise level. If I am trying to hit 75db, I usually look for the meter to bounce between 74.something and 76.

I just bought the boom mic

What is the attachment I need for both umik and the one for audyssey mic??

Hmmm…. Now I'm back to where I was before. Right now I'm running MultiEq XT. A while ago I was planning on buying the Denon X4000 to get XT32 to dial in the subs but that was going to be about $800 so then I was hoping that I could spend $105 on a minidsp to solve any sub issues. Now I'm back to wondering what I should do.

I am in similar boat (I am using YPAO) and I dont like it. I am considering an Anthem receiver to get ARC though..by most accounts it does a better job than any Audysey variant

Go here to look at boom mic stands.

Hop. I wouldn't be too discouraged. I was always happy with my minidsp. But I am thinking now I'm in a larger room with concrete floor I am asking too much of the minidsp. I never realized it cut 3db because I didn't need the headroom. But now I guess I do and it just doesn't work for me. The signal was defiantly clipping causing the bad sounds.

Like I said ran WotW again today at -5 and without minidsp. And no bad sounds. And tons of bass (more than I have ever had in my basement theater) makes me wish I figured this out earlier. Would have saved my 500$ from buying a buttkicker kit. Although that is still useful when the wife is asleep until I can soundproof the room

Hop I'd be willing to ship you mine to try it out. If it works for you then you can pay me for it. If you don't like it and it doesn't work you can send it back to me. Lmk
