I own a TX-NR807 with KEF IQ 5.1 speakers and for the most part it works fine (use it primarily for movies).
But I use a HTPC and notice whenever I output to Multichannel the sound isn't right at all. Explosions are muffled, the soundtrack is not "wide" etc. 5.1 DOES work however, it just doesn't sound right. It's connected via a seperate HDMI from my PC to my amp, in windows sound panel I've set my quality to 24Bit 192Khz. It always plays on multichannel, I can't seem to get it to switch to playing DTS or DD (HD), because when I play from another media host, such as my PS3, and play DTS or Dolby Digital content the sound is perfect, nice and wide good explosions etc.
Now I've dived into some of the speaker cutover frequency documents etc...but it's a little over my head and the number of settings on the Onkyo is insane.
I did run the audyssey setup when I bought it years ago, but tweaked around with it a bit as I wasn't hearing voices probably etc.
Isn't Multichannel supposedly a lot better then DTS/DD?
Can I change the surround settings to different processing (wide cinema etc.) while playing multichannel content?
If I'm having phasing problems or need to tweak my frequency range settings, why is other content playing fine?
