It's Dynamic EQ. It boosts the surrounds (in addition to adjusting freq response) to maintain surround immersion during movies. But not appropriate for all ch stereo listening.

Instead of adjusting surround levels which (as you found) also mucks up movie performance, either turn DEQ off for all ch stereo listening or adjust the Ref Level Offset parameter to 10-15db which will tone down how much DEQ is boosting. You could also try some of the other music surround upmix modes like Pro Logic II Music.

I concur -- try a couple of choices. I have found that if synthesizing for 5 speakers from a 2-channel source is necessary, I prefer PL II cinema for movies, but NEO:X music for music. The PL II choice for music still leaves the surround channels too loud, just like Azaqui's.

Is there a way to control or at least push music to an E300 from my PC? Ideally I'd like to select music from iTunes or Spotify and it would play on the E300. Is that possible, or should I just use the remote to browse files much slower?

Help with Bluetooth on new AVR-x7200w

I just bought my first Denon To replace my older Pioneer sc05. I bought the AVR-x7200w. I love it. I'm having a problem though. I set my iPad and iPhone to connect to it via Bluetooth so I could listen to music in Zone 2. The primary use is for home theater. Every time I go down my basement to watch a movie, the AVR is powered on and set to the Bluetooth input all by itself and for God knows how long. I always turn the receiver off and it is usually left on cable or bluray input. Is this because my phone and or iPad are searching for the AVR and are somehow connecting automatically. I can't find a setting on the AVR to turn Bluetooth off. I don't want to turn off Bluetooth on my devices. I use them for Bluetooth on my sound dock upstairs and connect with them in the car. Does this make sense? Am I missing something? I've only had the AVR for 2 weeks. I looked online and see nothing. I did check to see if I click on the Denon from my iPhone Bluetooth device list if it would power on the AVR and it does. And that is a convenient feature if I choose it but not when i find out the AVR powerred up by itself and was on for 3 or 4 days straight without me knowing! Thanks guys!

Using iTunes Airplay from your PC should work just fine. I use it a lot. Aside from being easier to find songs using iTunes, iTune has gapless playback capability for MP3s (my X4000 will only do gapless for FLAC / ALAC). Gapless playback is really nice when songs segue into one another, like on live albums or Abbey Road, or Dark Side of the Moon.

2-channel playback setup with x4000

I have an x4000 and 5.2 speakers, with the front L and R powered by an external amp. All of the speakers are set to SMALL. I am not using ZONE 2 or 3.

I'd like to have this system set up for 2-channel playback, but with a different crossover frequency than for home theater use, and I definitely don't want "double bass" in either use. Is this possible? If so, what is the right setting for Amp Assign? And in the 2-channel playback settings, I assume that I have SW Mode set to LFE, is that right?

I think that I "get" the manual's instructions on how to do a separate 2-channel setup when you have two sets of front speakers, but I have only one set.

You can use Airplay like was suggested already, or if you're like me you'll use the web interface or app that controls your NAS, or get a Google Chromecast and plug it into your AVR.
