The AVR will set the Dialogue and Subwoofer Level settings at what the mixer intended. You can then adjust them to suit your own personal preference without impacting the Audyssey EQ. Keep in mind that Dialogue Level is nothing more than the center channel volume level. So if you hear dialogue just fine, no adjustment necessary, otherwise if not, increase it a few db. An initial Subwoofer setting of -12.5 db means your sub gain is set to high and should be lowered to say 8 o'clock or 9 o'clock if currently set at 12 o'clock. Then run Audyssey again so the final Subwoofer level is closer to 0db than to -12db. Most prefer a little more bass, so you'll want to likely increase the Subwoofer Level at least 3-5db as well such that after the increase the final value is near 0db.

6 - 9 o'clock instead of 12 o'clock
7 - maxed out at 140Hz
8,9,10 - leave at current settings

^^ So to verify what I understood..

1. Before running the Audyssey, Turn Sub volume to 9 'o clock and change it to 140Mhz..and Hoping that after the Audyssey completes, it is closer to 0db than -12db?

2. Please clarify this - You said.."Most prefer a little more bass, so you'll want to likely increase the Subwoofer Level at least 3-5db as well such that after the increase the final value is near 0db"

- Is this after Audyssey completes its setup?
- Increase the db value via the AVR and leave the volume button on the SUB at 9 o'clock even after the Audyssey has been ran? and leave it at 9 O'clock permanently?

1. Correct.
2. After Audyssey is run, the sub should be set to around -6db to -4db (estimate). To increase the bass to suit your preference, use the Subwoofer Level setting and raise it a few db (eg. -6db + 4db = -2db). After Audyssey, there is no further adjustment on the sub.

For members with SR7005,6,7 , I have a question.

My source is Oppo 103, connected to Marantz S7007 using HDMI cable (audioquest forest)
For 2 channel music stereo playback do you recommend going with RCA's instead of HDMI? Will the imaging and detail improve noticeably?
Also does anyone use high quality speaker cable for the Marantz? Any noticeable improvement for Music?
Let's just disregard any surround sound part and base it solely for music listening in stereo mode.
I would like honest feedback from members who has gone from HDMI to RCA analog.
Would it be a waste of money to get a pair of cardas speaker cable or nordost vs plain oxygen free 12 gauge copper speaker wire?
Any real experiences would be appreciated
