denon 1712
emptek towers and center

i find the treble somewhat lacking. not lively enough for me but dont want a klipsch finger on chalkboard screeching sound

i understand the empteks are a neutral type speaker

but is there any way to up the treble a little like a treble control? i turned dynamic eq off and i think that helped a little, or could just be the placebo effect

also this is wierd. i have a panasonic plasma, i turned viera off but when turning on the avs it defaults to tv unless i turn direct tv and tv on first, then turn the avr on. not sure whats happening there

1. When Dynamic EQ is disabled, you can set the Tone Control (p. 55 Owner's manual) to ON and then adjust the Bass/Treble.
2. Set HDMI Control on the AVR to OFF.

Or leave DEQ on and try switching Audyssey EQ to FLAT

Not placebo, DEQ is boosting the low end more than anything so turning it off will make the highs sound more pronounced relatively.

i think deq off and upping treble tone to +3 helps.

i will try leaving deq on and audyssey eq to flat but i read audyssey flat is used when your room is treated and you sit close to t he speakers.

i sit about 10 or so feet from the speakers and my living room is not treated, hardwood floors. small carpet in front of the center.

maybe im just asking too much of my emps since they are a neutral speaker. but i will have to experiment some more.
