Thanks. I am interested in how Auro handles the Atmos speaker setup. I am not all that likely to install Auro here, and there is no way I am adding more speakers, but if Auro works well with existing...

You are right of course that Audyssey EQs two subs together, as one - but I have no idea if Dirac does the same or can do the same. I have solved the problem for myself by running two subs off one...

The room is far more influential for the subs. In fact, below about 2/300Hz you are really hearing more of the room than the subs. If you have two subs, in different parts of the room, they will...

Good to hear that you will be evaluating this unit. I am sure I speak for everyone when I say I am looking forward to your usual thorough examination of the unit.

Yes, thank you, Igor. It is good to see an Engineer confirm this. I think I know who doesn’t seem to understand the function of the knob on the subwoofer amp, and it isn't me ;)

OK thanks. So in my case, I'd need to make sure that the AVR output doesn't exceed 2V at 0Db on the MV? This would be for all channels not just the sub as the DDRC-88A will be EQing 8 channels...

I guess it depends what it will cost. As more channels would need more physical connections, and physical stuff always costs, you could be right.

You are welcome. Always use the AVR trims to make changes to bass level - it is easier then to go back to a known setting if you need to. Unless your sub has a digital volume readout, as some do, it...

I think you are referring to the sub trim level in the AVR.

If so - that is fine. The ±3.5dB thing is just a rough guide. My sub trim comes in at -6dB for example and I am happy with it. The basic...
