Hi, I have a new home theater set up. I wish I had known about this forum before i purchased parts. Right now I have Rc85i front speakers in wall, Cs10 center, Rc80i rear in ceiling speakers, sony sw10 sub, and an AVR-1612 denon receiver powering it all. I have it set up decently but when playing music it seems a bit sharp. I know there are settings that i could adjust to warm up the sound but the denon avr manual is generic. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again.
The highs are piercing in the top frequencies 10kish and up. If I adjust the tone it affects the whole "treble" frequency ranges. I want to be able to adjust the treble to a nice level. I had a different avr hooked up and it has an eq built in that had manual adjustments but it's old and doesn't have hdmi. I was able to fine tune the speakers with that avr to a fantastic sounding system. Maybe this new denon 1612 avr needs an upgrade?
Yes that was the first thing I did. I did have to adjust the settings for speaker DB as it was way off. I have put hardwood flooring in and ran the audyssey setup again after resetting the microprocessor. I like the movies but can't stand how the music sounds at a relatively high volume. Is there a way to adjust the frequencies via the avr, or is there an avr on the market that will allow me to make the adjustments I want to make the sound better?
I did and it was ok but not great. I did notice being unhappy after I put wood flooring in. What would you suggest besides an area rug. This is in my living room, so any suggestions for wall treatments? The room has flat ceilings and laminate flooring. Any help would be great.
I have to in walls right next to the tv on each side. The center chan is right below the receiver and the ceiling rears are above the couch. Unfortunately the only place for the couch is near the rear wall. I'll post pics soon as I get a chance. I ran audyssey with the mic on a dining room chair at ear level at the three optimal seating spots. I used the chair as I didn't have a tripod to put it on. I have tweaked the settings a bit as the db's seemed to be off per speaker. I assume from the lack of acoustic treatment and the new flooring. I still at high volumes, wish that I had more control over the higher frequencies.
