Its not an AV receiver but a BluRay player.

The A1 and 4010/A100 were the Denon top of the line BluRay players. The DBT-3313UDCI is now the top of the line but in no way compares to the previous...

I also listen to SACD's in DSD MULTI DRCT in 5.1. However I am not aware of any mode that will allow you to "parallel" the rears with the sides. You could use the speaker re-assignment but that would...

Asere,

It sounds as if you may have an incorrect gain structure if engaging Audyssey causes popping/clipping. Audyssey can boast frequencies by up to +10dB and that can take a big chunk out of...

Mike,

Just a quick note to point out Audyssey never limits the frequency response of any sub. It just refuses to EQ anything that is below the combined frequency responses -3dB point. This was...

Mike,

Happy to exchange points of view. However I have spent hundreds of hours using both the stand alone Audyssey Sub EQ, with and without the additional use of XT32 in my AVP. So what I have...

I operate a pair of Genelec 8030's for front height and prefer DPL IIz. Unfortunately there are very few purpose mixed Blu Rays that utilize these speakers, and I find that generally they don't add a...
