The 3808CI is still fairly current with HDMI 1.3, a decent number of HDMI inputs, and MultEQ XT calibration software. If you just want to calibrate a standard 5.1 or 7.1 system and rock out, it will...

There are two separate settings -- the LFE LPF only ever affects the LFE channel (.1) and so has nothing to do with the mains bass. There is no "subwoofer crossover", the actual crossovers for bass...

Thanks for the report. I watched Gravity the other night and had it at 62 (-18) and it was freakin loud. I had both DEQ and DV disabled.

I really wonder what the trade off is with Eco mode. If...

When fronts are set to Large / LFE+MAIN the "crossover" is actually the high-pass filter for the "double bass" sent to the subwoofer. Regardless of the LFE+MAIN setting, a speaker set to "Large"...

Abra cadabra?

I've also heard "please" is the magic word.

Not sure I understand the question.

Question 1 has been discussed quite a bit in the last few pages as several other new owners are not used to the Denon volume scale.

Sorry, when you said you had 7 MK 150's I just assumed they were all the S150 direct firing models. With elevated surrounds working as dipoles you probably are already getting a ton of diffuse sound...

One thing to note is that the initial SW Level Match test isn't as precise as the actual level set by Audyssey. It just gets you in the ballpark. And also remember that two subs will result in...

@ ColorChange -

I think a lot depends on what you can get for the 5805 used. Although you can use it as an amp, personally, I feel like it's somewhat of a waste to use a receiver as an amp only,...

Yes, unfortunately using DEQ makes multich stereo mode almost unlistenable. The surrounds are sent the same signal as the fronts but it's heavily boosted.

Yes, you'll be fine. Assuming 3ft seated ear height that's 5ft up to the ceiling, so 5ft back would be 45 degrees. You only need to get 3.5ft back to hit the minimum 35 degree spec. I would probably...

The 7009 is basically the Marantz souped up version of the X4100 with 9 amps. Its capabilities are the same as the X5200. Remember Marantz models are architecturally identical to the Denons.

7.1.2 + front heights would be 7.1.4, not 9.1.2.

In the Atmos nomenclature it's floor level speakers first and elevated speakers last.
