Well my amp is still at the service shop 2 weeks no word, called Marantz Canada who was going to call them and get back with me still waiting for that call. Called my dealer on Saturday and talked to the owner a new amp is on the way will have it on Friday. Hats off to Carlo, Jason and Claude at Stereo Plus and Design in Ottawa, Canada. They are Stand up guys who really care about their customers.

rgds,

Dave

Guys I ran my first audyssey calibration today and my results are front l/r/c -5 , subwoofer -3 and now when i play movies i need to put volume around 65 to get good sound and my sub completely went flat and don't hear any much base...i tried multiple movies...not sure if there is issue with my microphone(which has crack on topside of base) please advise....
before calibration i felt using 55 was too loud and now after calibration 65 still now loud....

Try bumping the sub up by 5-6 db! and post back

A volume control setting of 65 after calibrating is typical: that's 15dB below reference. Most people find reference (80) much too loud in a home environment.

After calibration, Marantz volume control settings measure in dB relative to the movie standard reference. They do not specify a fraction of the maximum possible output of a receiver or amp. If you want, you can change the volume readout scale so it shows 0 at reference and -15 at normal listening levels. See page 44 of the 8801's owner's manual.

See if this info from the Audyssey FAQ helps:

f)5. Since I ran Audyssey everything sounds great - but where has my bass gone?


f)4. If I want to run my subs a little 'hot' where should I make the changes?

kbarnes701, Selden Ball and audiofan1 thanks for your advise..i think there is nothing wrong with settings and audyssey and it is me trying to get used to more tighter bass than old boomy sounds...i will try to listen more but i should say my music came to life awesome sounds and i get goosebumps listing to music..never had this awesome experience....
One another question how do i connect buttkicker to a v8801..use y splitter and connect to sw1(currently used for supercube1) or use sw2 and do i need to rerun audssey after connecting buttkicker..

Connect the buttkicker to either SW output - makes no difference. No need to run Audyssey again - the Audyssey mic can't hear a buttkicker!
