I think your assessment in why the Nano gets it wrong with bass management is accurate.

Why is the 88A approach better? Remember that during the Dirac calibration on the 88A, the AVR is...

I am not concerned with the response curve below 20Hz. I am more of a music listener, rather than an action movie buff. Keith and I have night and day different listening habits.

I am using "Custom", currently with a +5dB bass boost, as shown in the "tamed down" house curve below. The curve I posted earlier today was just too much bass on some music content.

Actually, I have several calibrations saved on the 88A. The others don't have quite the bass boost as the one we are looking at. One of the most appealing features of the 88A, of course, is the...

How are you using DEQ and DVol on a system calibrated with Dirac Live? Are you using both Audyssey and Dirac at the same time? :eek:

What you see is the result of Dirac's Auto Targets, not a boost that I have applied. My ears certainly can't hear the boost.
