First post in this thread. Upgraded from an old Sony receiver to the 1712 a couple of weeks ago. Did a decent amount of reading before, and a lot of reading since.
A couple of (hopefully) basic questions:
1) Is the only function of Dynamic Volume to maintain an even volume (i.e. to not allow explosions or loud commercials through)? I like the idea of an even volume across all channels, but I also like having loud parts of movies and shows (i.e. explosions) be loud. Is there a happy medium? What is the difference between Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ?
2) In the Auto Surround settings, Digital 2.0 is set to Dolby Pro Logic II Cinema. If I want to change 2.0 from PLII to stereo sound, where within the menu can I make that happen?
3) I got a "phase" error during auto set-up with my center speaker. Checked the wiring, which is good. Am I correct that there is nothing to worry about (per Batpig's run through)?
4) Aside from running the Audyssey auto set-up, and naming inputs, are there any other settings that I should look at? If so, what do those settings mean? (Btw, I'm running a 5.0 set-up, with towers up front). I'm pretty darn happy with the upgrade, but certainly am not afraid to play around/tweak if I can get an even better sound/experience.
Thanks in advance!
