For those X4000 owners using the Denon remote that are having difficulty with Zones 2 or 3 powering on, yet not currently having any Zone 2/3 speakers connected, you can program the remote to only control the Main zone as shown on p. 208 in the Owner's manual and below ...

Main zone only - press/hold Main + Setup
Main zone + Zone 2 - press/hold "2" + Setup
Main zone + Zone 2 + Zone 3 - press/hold "3" + Setup

So I'm actually still not clear on this LOL If I leave it at main + zone 2, every time I power off I need to shut zone 2 separately? And when I power up zone 2 will be off until I power it on? Something still isn't clear and the above doesn't explain that.

Sorry if this seems trivial or that I have brain lock here :

Jumped ship from Yamaha to Denon after 20 years of buying Yamaha, due to good deal on X4000. Wondered what sort of numbers this put out on the bench, given it's lightweight but did not see any review showing numbers.

Anyone seen one?

Regardless of how the remote is set, zones are controlled independently for power on/off, volume etc. The procedure that JD described above simply allows you to "lock out" the option of controlling certain zones accidentally.

So if you power Zone 2 on, it won't go off until you turn it off. And if it's off, powering up Main Zone won't turn it on.

Thanks for that confirmation. Didn't want to turn on the TV at 11pm, watching Fast & Furious 6 and shock the neighbors out of their shorts

On Yamaha, I always set all my speakers to small, crossover to 80hz and let the subwoofer handle the LFE and crossed over bass.

I tried that on the X4000 after running Audyssey and the bass seems a bit weak now. It could be that it's weak in comparison to how Audyssey set stuff up initially, I don't trust my audio memory too much.

Closer by NIN nails ( by default bass test track) sounds ok, but London Bridge by Fergie sounds weak ( this track should have a lot of bass in it.)

I know you guys know your Denon, so any help is great

There are a couple of stock answers...

The first is that -- because YPAO doesn't EQ the subwoofer with nearly the same efficacy as XT32 -- you had grown used to some pleasing "lumps" the bass that have now been flattened out by XT32. So the bass is flatter / more accurate, but not as visceral.

So most recommend giving yourself some time to adjust to the "flat" bass, and then if you still feel it's weak, just up the subwoofer channel manually a few dB until you get the oomph you are looking for.

You should also be using Dynamic EQ if you aren't, since it will restore a lot of the bass frequencies at sub-reference volumes.
