This is my first post.
I plan to calibrate my OPPO 105D to get the best analog sound possible when playing a CD, Blu -ray or Hi-Res music files from my PC or a USB. My OPPO is connected to a Marantz SR7010 AVR. Blu-rays and cable TV already sound outstanding through HDMI, optical and coaxial connections with the help of Audyssey processing.
However, I’m really curious to find out how Blu-rays, CDs and Hi-Res music files from my PC or a USB would sound using the multi-channel analog ins/outs and stereo RCA between the OPPO and AVR. I plan to do the calibration using the Blu-ray disc from AIX records.
So, the questions for my fellow OPPO 105 users or anyone who can help are:
1. What are the preferred analog configurations for 2.1 stereo music and playing movies in a 7.1 set up in the OPPO 105D?
2. What base volume level should be set in the AVR to perform the calibration? Should it be at 0 db, or in the case of the Marantz at 80? Somewhere in this forum, I read that I should adjust the main volume in the OPPO to the point where my speakers are level matched at 75db, but there was no mention (or none that I could find) of what offsetting volume level should be set in the AVR to begin the calibration.
3. My subs (I have 2) are already level matched for audyssey processing. How do I handle adjusting the gain on the subs without upsetting the audyssey levels should the OPPO calibration call for it? Do I only adjust the sub trim level in the OPPO in that case?
Thanks so much!
