Adjusting the crossover point of your sub(s) will change the Trinnov crossover. I have 2 separate calcs, one for movies, one for music.

I have a 7.2 setup w/ all spkrs full range. With the sub crossovers bypassed, Trinnov sets the spkr crossover at 80hz. By lowering the sub crossovers to 60hz, Trinnov sets the spkrs at 40hz.

Multi-channel music sounds better to me w/ the lower crossover.

thanks.......I'll keep playing with the sub's controls until i get it dialed in. My inexperience/knowledge (i.e. human error) continues to be the weakest link in my setup.

So....I decided to sell my AC4L A-stock R-972 because I have the Denon AVR-A100. But then I wanted to try Tinnov on the cheap again and found a refurbished unit on Amazon.




I tried checking the firmware version with Display+Enter, but it only displays: 80 40 21 00 00


I don't know what that means...
Will anyone with the 1.47 version respond with what they see in the VFD when pressing Display+Enter on the R-972?
Also tried to do the 1.47 upgrade. I have a working laptop with an RS-232 port, and RS-232 cable, and a gender bender for the R-972. Verified that the RS-232 lines are correct but the update program just won't talk to the R-972 .
HDMI2-4 are not working. I'm going to open it up and look for a loose connection...


On the plus side, I got a sweet calibration yesterday and am loving the seemless sound-field at the sweet spot.

Here's what I see when I hit display + enter:

twells, thanks for the reply! I was checking with the power on. Noticed that you had the unit in standby, so I checked mine in standby and it is indeed already at 1.47.

I also double-checked the pin connections on my rs-232 with gender bender, and the TX-RX lines are crossed from the laptop to the R-972. Not sure why they won't talk, or why the update program never times out (well, at least for 30 minutes).

I didn't find any loose connections inside of the R-972. Reseated most of them just to be sure.

Repair service may be needed to get HDMI2-4 working.

I had HDMI 2-4 go out on me too, I sent it in for service and they had to replace the HDMI board (HDMI 1 is physically separate) It worked great then went out again less than a year later.
Currently I am using a remote control HDMI spliter because I did not want to spend another $50+ to ship it back to Sherwood only to potentially have it fail again.

Any owners of this unit around Kansas City who would be interested in comparing their unit directly against other avrs with audyssey, mcacc, yapo, arc, dirac, etc? This comparison at a g2g with other avs forum enthusiasts in early November?

If I was 5-6 hours away I would consider making the run, but that is quite a commitment.

The G2G thread is up...I'm sorry to be a nuisance, but I'd really love to have one of these Trinnov units in our comparison. I've heard a lot of good things about the technology.
Here's to hoping somebody is close enough to be interested in participating!
