The Audyssey FAQ, linked in my signature, has a section with an in-depth comparison of XT and XT-32. Quite a few owners in the Audyssey thread have made the upgrade during the last few years and...

I have read this thread with a great deal of interest, although I am not currently in the market for a new display. When I am, in two or three years, I will get the biggest 4k display I can afford,...

[QUOTE=Hammonje;30819514]Another question for the experts.

Thanks again, JD. I did get it working okay. I don't know why I was having trouble, but I was persistent. So far, I like it a lot.

Hi,

I believe that you would get more benefit from either Option 1 or Option 2 than from your current set-up. I might personally lean toward Option 1, with the more direct sound coming from the...

Roku 3 Set-up

Hi,

I am going to add a Roku 3 to my system. I am planning to run the HDMI cable to my 7008. Does anyone know of any issues playing 7.1, or have any set-up tips to offer? I assume that any...

Keith,

You have already gotten a couple of suggestions and I hate to add any more, but I would recommend amending the following:

There is one caveat to the advice above: if adjusting the AVR...

I would suggest trying (listening to it) both ways. Without a sub in your system, I am not sure that there is any inherent advantage to raising any of your crossovers from wherever your AVR set...

I understand what you are saying, and I think "concern over the lack of information" would be pitching it a little too strongly for me. But I have certainly been curious about what...

I took a quick look at the 909 and it does seem like a beast, but I think you will be very happy with Marantz. XT-32 is a significant upgrade from XT. The FAQ, linked below, has some detail on the...

I can't really say whether Audyssey is too bright in general. I actually prefer Audyssey Flat, so I guess that wouldn't be true in my room and for my taste. But XT-32 seems to be particularly...

Hi Dave, and welcome! We have all been new owners at one time or another. As JD says, the bi-amping you are doing won't really help you. It's really just a marketing device. You can research "passive...

The question from Fjodor was also posted in the xoo8 owners thread and jdsmoothie gave a very succinct answer. But Fjodor's response to that post indicated that he needs more clarification....
