Hey everyone, I recently finished putting together my theater. I let audyssey do its thing and tried out some blu rays. WOW, I was blown away. Everything sounds amazing. Highs are perfect, bass is incredible, and still sounds perfect at nearly painful volume.
I put in the alice in chains unplugged dvd, and again, sounds amazing. In both instances the receiver set itself to dolby digital.
But when I try cd's it just doesn't sound right. Highs dont seem as crisp, and the bass sounds disjointed from the rest of the music.
Ive tried scrolling through tons of settings but I cant figure it out. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what they set their receiver to when listening to cds. Or what else I may be doing wrong. Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance.

System is,
Denon 3311
Focal 814 fronts
Focal 814cc center
Focal 705 surrounds
Outlaw audio lfm-1 plus sub

If the front mains were set to LARGE after running Audyssey, then go into the Manual Setup menu and reset your Front mains to SMALL/80Hz as is recommended for generally all speakers. Also note there is a dedicated thread for Denon 3311CI owners you may also want to review for more helpful information.
