Also, I am using the 7.1 analog out and bumped up LFE to +10db on the Marantz reciever. Should I also bump up +10db in the player? Would it be +20db total if I did this or just +10?
I have the Def Tech Supercube II subwoofer. If anybody has any tips to get the best boom out of this box, I'd appreciate it!
In the audio menu, you can defeat all the 3800's speaker settings (so your receiver can do them without "double duty") by activating the SOURCE DIRECT setting.
