I just got my hands on a slightly used - like brand new RX-A1020. I love all the features and simplified connectivity with this new receiver. My previous Yamaha RX-V1000 was about 13 years old and due for an upgrade. I have owned 2 Yamaha receivers over the past 20 years and absolutely love their sound and reliability.
Now with this new Aventage receiver I feel the sound is too "bright". Anyone know how to tone this down? I have tried tweaking the tone controls (decrease treble/increase bass) but that hasn't solved it for me. I ran the YPAO multi point setup but that wasn't to my liking either and there were some quirks to it (front speakers set to large when they are small, etc...)
I am using the same speakers, cables, source devices, etc... that I had running through my RX-V1000. Nothing else has changed other than the receiver and the fact that all my sources are HDMI connected now. In the past the audio input to the RX-V1000 was either coax, optical or analog.
Last night I popped in a couple of CD's using my Blu-Ray player to play them and they sounded to "bright" to me. I tried using the direct option with 2 channel stereo and that didn't solve it either.
Hopefully someone else has experienced this and has some recommendations.
