I need a little help or clarification here. I'm doing the preliminary set-up of the 988... I have skipped auto setup/Audyssey calibration for now, saving it for later when my room is properly set-up and I have more time. I have gone through items 2 (Manual Setup) & 3 (Input Setup) of the main set-up menu without a hitch. It is in item 4 (Parameter) that I seem to be encountering a puzzling curiousity: There are supposed to be 6 items within the "Parameter" menu, but the first one, "Surround Parameter," is inexplicably missing from the menu on my screen even though the manual lists it as one of the items that should appear under "Parameter" This is how the "Parameter" menu looks:
2. Tone Control
3. Room EQ
5. Night Mode
6. Audio Delay
As you can see, there is no item # 1 and no "Sound parameter" showing on the screen. Does anyone know whether I'm doing something incorrectly? Does it have something to do with my skipping the Audyssey Room calibration auto setup?
Your help would be appreciated, as usual. Thanks.
PS: HOw important are the "Surround Parameter" settings to me at this stage?
