I think you may have made a mistake in your post. Perhaps you meant to say, "I think its safe to say that HDMI on a Denon 4520 is notoriously quirky for me".

Or perhaps you meant to say, "I think...

For the AVR to switch to MULTICH IN mode, it needs to be detecting a multi-channel source signal. It is possible that your PC does not support multi-channel. For example, I have a 3-4 year old...

You can run a measurement like right+ subs without unplugging a speaker cable. With Java, you should be using a Y-cable into the left and right RCA connections on your AVR. Simply unplug one side...

I agree. Unplugging speaker wires is dangerous. The only time this might be necessary when using the Java drivers is when a subs-only measurement is required, unless you are driving the main...

Interesting that you are finding more albums on Tidal than on other services. After only one day of the trial, my experience is the opposite. I have conducted a number of searches in which the...

Yes, you need to provide more specific information. "Video won't work with our TV" just doesn't tell us much. It could be as simple as a wrong setting. I would start out with these settings in the...

The measurement you posted is consistent with what I saw when I used the 7.1 configuration. The 10dB boost is aggressive, and sounded quite bass-heavy to me. However, some bass-heads may like it. ...

The gently sloping down to the right target isn't really a "house curve". It is a reflection of what I reported earlier, a study by Harman that concluded that this shape target was most preferred by...

Certainly a true statement. But I think the question is, does the aging result in enough of a "drift" in a LED panel settings to warrant a periodic re-calibration? If yes, how long does it take for...

I would be inclined to use the "chair" pattern if I am the only one listening. The nice thing about the 88A is that you can save both and switch back and forth between them. Rather than relying on...
