I just got my 818 in silver, and I am upgrading from the Pioneer SC-LX72, I dont know the exact model in the USA, but thats not important.
The 818 vs the Pioneer
Its that good, the sound from the center is a lot more clear and fluid and the sound from music is A LOT MORE DYNAMIC. I am hearing things with the 818 that I never heard with the pioneer. (more detail)
Anyway, is it me or is setting the subwoofer to 75db a touch to low? do you guys set it a bit higher to like 80 or 85?
Also it has set my Monitor Audio RX6 at 40hz and my RXFX at 100hz, would you recommend changing this to 80Hz for THX ? or would you leave them at 40hz, I did a full 8 position xt32.
Also should I update the firmware, is there something I am missing, it keeps asking me to update it.
Sorry for the dumb questions, this is only my second amp and 1st one with xt32.
Thanks so much, and glad I upgraded my pioneer.
Sorry forgot to mention, my subwoofer is a SVS PC-13Ultra with sledge amp, I dont know how to use the EQ on the subwoofer so I have not touched it.
