This is my first dip into this stuff and this manual is massive and has SOO much information. I have a simple 3.1 setup in an apartment complex which consists of the Inifity P363's and the Klipsh RW-12D and wondering what parts of this manual are the most important?

I hope this question isnt to vauge, but my goodness I am just lost...

Heres a link to the manual for all you experts out there who might be able to help smile.gif Thanks!

What are you trying to accomplish ? Just browse the manual and if something looks of interest, pay more attention.
As long as you have sound, be happy.

Well I had my floor speakers hooked up to my older receiver without my center, then yesterday I finally got the rest of my parts and hooked up the center, then this new receiver and the sound for music just doesnt sound as good. Maybe its because I didnt listen to it loud enough and im just being dumb. It was late at night and I didnt get it to test it alot. I just want the 3.1 to sound as good as it can smile.gif

Have you set distance/db levels for each speaker. An SPL meter works best.

No I haven't. It came with a speaker to position around the room to calibrate and all that I guess I just haven't used it yet. Been resetting everything up and that took a little bit of time.

Until you get all speakers balanced/calibrated you won't get the best of your equipment.

did you ever calibrate your system with the microphone?

If so, what were the results?
