After the long wait for this baby after I sold my Pioneer SC-37, I finally got the 3000..
I'm using Rotel amps for all 7.1 channels and the yamaha for the front presence speakers...
So far, it sound AWESOME... When listening to 2 channel music, I had to walk upto my center speaker to make sure it was off...
Detail was aswsome and sondstage was huge..
Movies thus far sound Awesome also.. Very detailed and unreal steering for the channels..
I used the mic to setup the system for 9.2.. I have 2 subs in the mono config...(both located beside each other - that was best placement)
AFter the mic did its thing, I changed all the speakers from Large which it set ,to small and set crossover to 80hz per speakers.. I also Used a Radio Shack SPL meter to correct the levels..
Here is where questions start..
1- I noticed that for the distance for all channels, they seeemed to be correct, but the sub was greater distance than the actual measured distance with a tape measuere..
Should I trust the Mic for the sub distance, or use a good old fasion tape measure and fix it?
2- When correcting the SPL with my radio shack meter for all channels, I noticed that the two subs were quite a bit lower than the rest of the channels.. So, I set each sub seperate to acheive the same SPL as the rest of the channels.. Is this the correct thing to do for 2 subs? I ask because the bass is now VERY LOUD.... What should I really be doing?
I know the yamaha allows me to adjust each sub seperate, but it seems to add too much bass...
3- For the front presence speakers... I find that ADVENTURE mode seems to sound the best... using the 3-D DSP also.. But... I find that not much info is really coming out of the speakers.. Seems lower than rest of channels also.. Is this Normal? When using the STANDARD mode with 3-D DSP I hear no info going to them..
Will there be a firmware in future with PLIIZ mode?
4- HOw does one set the Scene modes? I tried and seemed to save settings, but, when going into the details for the that scene, I found that some settings were indeed not saved.. Like the FLAT EQ mode , it was on natural..
HOw does one correct this?
Also, once you get past the first 4 scene modes, how does one make other scene modes since the yamaha can do 12..
Sorry for these questions, but to fully get the ultimate sound form this baby, I need knowledge..
Thanks in advance..
