Hi all,

This is my 1st post to the forum, seems like the best one on the net! I've just recently majorly upgraded my HT setup to a dream system, I sold my Marantz 6400 receiver for the new Masters series M25 amp and M15 prepro. I also upgraded the Boston acoustics speakers that I had for the new Mirage OMD-28 mains and C2 centre channel. I have a Mirage BPS 400 as the sub and Mirage FX's as surround channels. The old BA VR-950's are used a the rear surrounds now.
The setup has a clarity and openness of soundstage that is awesome but I'm wondering if I have selected the correct parmeters in the M15 audio menus...
My feeling is that since the OMD 28's are capable of excellent bass that I should give them more than the standard 80hz and up THX standard setting for small speaker setting..

Heres what the M15 menu gives as selectable audio parameters:

LFE level: 0.0 db (I left it alone since I adjust on the subwoofer vol)
Enchanced Bass: says that when left on that it allows full range operation of speakers so I left it on
THX auto: left it off so that the DTS and Dolby formats do not pass through the Thx decoder
THX/Speakers setup:
Front L&R --set to large
Center-- set to large
surround-- set to 2 small
Subwoofer-- can choose either 1 small, 2 small(THX), 1 large, 2 large or none, I chose 1 large
surr back-- set to 2 large (the BA 950's go down to 45hz)
LR + LFE Xover-- can choose form 60-120hz in 10hz increments, I chose 60hz
centre Xover-- same range of freqs I chose 60 since the C2 is a BIG centre speaker
Surr Xover-- I chose 80 since they are pretty small
Bass filter-- Thx, or 2nd order (not sure what this means)

next I set the speaker distances and left the speaker levels neutral for now 0 db

did I set it up right? Bass response seems to still be limited to my ears in the OMD 28 mains.....


thanks

Mike W

Try setting the Subwoofer to "None" and see what the speakers can do? They are rated down to 25 Hz.

You will also have to set speaker level and sub phase.

Best of luck with this NAD equipment. I think we have both made a wise decision. I have entered this forum to try to resolve a few issues I am having. I've read the replies you received. I can tell you I get better two channel with the sub set up as None. The speakers sound full and I don't find the combination with the sub to hurt the low end at all.

The problem I am having is that I can only see Black and white with the DVD's. I have tried connecting this with both Component and S-video in every combination but with out any resolution. I do not have High def so with my TV those are the only two options for me. Maybe I have a faulty unit or my set up is wrong. Do you have any advice for this problem?

I am considering the NAD Master Components. Does the M15 pass a 1080p signal through it's HDMI input?
