I recently purchased a used RX-V3900 to replace my RX-V3200, I was very happy with my RX-V3200 and just wanted HDMI, internet radio and a few extra more modern conveniences with out a sacrifice of power.
I have connected Cerwin Vega E-715 speakers which when paired to the RX-V3200 would just about blow the windows out in my house. When connecting the RX-V3900 the sound pressure is gone, simply put my Cerwin vegas sound like little satellite speakers on this thing - they can go somewhat loud but there is next to no bass, I originally configured it with the yamaha mic, then reset as it looked to put a high pass filter on, I then manually configured them to large speakers, tried boosting the bass, then did several complete factory resets.
With the same music source i have run the amps side by side, both on processor direct, the difference is like chalk and cheese.
Is there something I am missing or have I acquired a dud?
Surely the more modern more powerful RX-V3900 should not be blown out of the water by its older lower spec'd RX-V3200..
Any input would be appreciated.
