Anyone else running into limitations in their AVR with regards to this? My Denon x4000 only allows for 20 feet of difference between the nearest and furthest speaker. Leaving all DIRAC channels at...

Jerry, I owe you a virtual beer. My denon x4000 is just fine. And my 88a is back to behaving after resetting it to factory defaults, and reloading my last calibration. I am happy that this was an...

It doesn't matter what you do when you are running the calibration. The AVR (Denon) can even be off. The 88a is doing all of the noise-making. ;-)

One you are done, the AVR will be making the...

Wow. Very interesting. It didn't at all occur to me it could be the 88a. But, of course it should have. The rear surrounds, which weren't effected are *not* going through the 88a. If the...

Yesterday, while watching a movie, at a particularly loud passage, I heard what can best be described as high frequency crackling, and some sort of weird "phaziness."

It didn't stop.

On the other hand, I've not found that to be the case ever. As I've reported here, I have a somewhat unusual case in that my 4 rear surround speakers are powered by a MUCH less powerful amp than my...

Off-topic for this thread, so I'll keep it short.

It's an astoundingly good piece of equipment. I went in not believing it would sound much better than Audyssey xt32. I was wrong.

Feel free...

EQ them before room correction, or are you talking about a situation where there is no room correction in use?

Sorry, no counterpoint from me. Just more of the same. I have a 9.2 set up using front heights. When I got the 88A, I used it to calibrate my front sound stage (L/C/R, Front heights L&R, and side...

Ah, yes. That's what I was after. I was really just wondering if there is some untapped potential (more filters). It seems there is.



Yep, I forgot about it capping at 500Hz. I found that...

I think AVS did as well as they possibly could here. No fault of theirs. The issue is with the way miniDSP makes the software/licensing available. ...

Sure, I've got that. But I was still wondering if anyone does or doesn't use *both* sets of filters in the 2x4. And, if they are using only one set, which one?

Also, speaking of the Dirac 88a,...

I'm using the advanced 2x4 plugin.

I did a few sweeps while standing/sitting/hiding in different locations. None are changing the bass response enough to matter.

Well, in the meantime, my Dirac 88A came in...so once that is dialed in, I'll be able to post some more interesting graphs.

It sounds good.

Here's my method nowadays.

Turn up the output to something significantly more than -40 (raises the volume during the tests, but also gives more headroom above noise floor).

Set Mic gain to 0.
