I recently purchased Denon 3312ci and set up home theater on my living room. (I have B&W CM5 as front, HTM2 as center and DM 601 S3 as surrounds, and Polk DSW 440 for sub). I connected all speakers to Denon and did Audyssey setup according a thread in this forum. I connected all sources (PS3/DVR/PC) to Denon and output to TV. The movie sounds enjoyable but it seems to miss some of the details. The music sounds not very good (much less details) compared to before (I played music from CD/Streaming through PS3). I tried different audio setting, Audyssey, Flat, Manual, Direct. Note: my previous setup was that I connected sources (HDMIs) to my TV and have optical out from TV to DL III and then to NAD.
I guessed, this must be suprior in 2 channels amplifier in NAD so I connected front speakers back to NAD and connected NAD to Denon (Denon's pre-out to NAD's main-in, disconnect pre-out jumper on NAD). I did audyssey again (several times), it sounds even worse.
Is there something wrong with my setup? Or, is this why the sale person recommended me to get NAD + DL III instead of Denon when I told him I would mainly use it for listen to music?
Any advise on the best setup so that I can enjoy the sound I like as well as home theater?
