[/LIST]
1. Yes.
2. You would have to set them to small.
3. It's possible, but cumbersome, as again it's a trip through the speaker config menu. It does not store multiple speaker configurations.

Then you have already adopted the innovation that reduces baseline noise. An attenuator. :)

If your 8801's gain trims are all in the negative region, I'd increase the attenuation so they are all...

I am still wondering if you could identify any preamps (digital capable) that met your criteria. If not, why single out the Marantz?

There would be no more...

Which current digital-capable preamps meet that criteria?

Do you have some power amps with <10 dB gain? Then almost any good preamp will meet that noise requirement.

You only need to connect the single audio wire from the AVR's subwoofer output to the sub's L or R input (pick one). May have to remove a plastic cap covering the RCA input.

Decide how you want...

Well, any correlated content will indeed come from the center speaker, but the rest remains in L/R. But I understand your comment. At least there's the center spread!

I live in the past. I used the RS meter yesterday.

I'm in that boat with you. I add 6 dB for all my music listening. So we are operating ~10 dB higher than where Audyssey sets the subs. :eek: ...

The channel trims properly affect the internal noise levels on my AV7702. That is where people should be correcting the low subwoofer calibrations. Setup>Speakers>Manual Setup>Levels.

The sound quality issue I have with the 7702 is twofold. First, it dropped PLIIx, and the alleged replacements, Dolby Surround, Auromatic, or Neo:X, are not my cuppa tea by a country mile.

Do you mean that you set the sub SPL 5 dB higher than the mains?

I bumped my sub trims 5 dB, too. Not to add sugar, but to set the sub balance correctly. The mains were all at 75 dB, but the subs...

Right you are. Y'know, I went to that image first, just to make sure if it said 7.1.4 or not, so as to avoid putting my foot in it. But I did it anyway. :o

It was hard to do in Norway as they apparently do not have an Atmos production facility. It would not be hard to do in LA. ;)
