I would not be concerned with levels until you have completed a calibration. Remember to make sure that the sub channel level is the same as the rest of the channels, as measured by the test tones...

Glad to see you are back in business, Keith. I certainly hope this was a one-time anomaly. Maybe there was some static electricity in the air. Fingers crossed.

That is indeed unfortunate. I would look for a used speaker to match what you have, rather than getting a new speaker that is an entirely different model. Or get two new speakers and get rid of the...

It has been quite a while since I have seen an AVR that had the connections to allow an outboard processor to be connected like you suggest. So, unfortunately, the answer is no. You need an...

I assume your subs are powered? If yes, then connect the subs to the eighth output on the 88A using a Y-cable.

I don't think it matters that much, but Emotiva is a good amp. I have the XPA-7, which I am very happy with.

Yes, of course. I always assume restoring to factory defaults fixes all problems. But if it doesn't, and you end up with a home theater with no calibration, I certainly wouldn't wish that on...

I just thought it might be something to consider. Nothing wrong with using the 4520, if that is what you want to do.

Keith, I don't know what trouble-shooting steps you have tried. If you have the original measurements saved in a project, I would reset the 88A to factory defaults, then reload the project,...

The curve I achieved is actually done simply by applying a boost in the AVR sub trim setting, not using the curve editor. I will continue to experiment, so thanks for the suggestion.

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.

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:
