My money is on this time next year before we see it in AVRs. And then who knows when/if we will have content?

If the calibration went as expected I am sure the mic will be OK.

Ah right, then I stand corrected. I have a good friend who is a UK Denon dealer, so I'll ask him if he has heard the same.

If the dual subs are set up to run off two sub outputs. If you run them off one sub output this isn't the case and they will be about 4.5dB 'hot'. Why 4.5dB IDK, but on the Onkyo setup screen it...

That is a good rule IMO. But the upgrade of the Denon/Marantz units to Auro and DTS-UHD seems pretty certain, based on the announcement made at CEDIA. Mind you, I think that buying a new D&M unit...

If that is the case it is something entirely new to Audyssey. No matter where you set the initial sub level (as I say, I use 84dB) you can continue with the calibration simply by skipping that stage....

There's no 'should' about it. That is just the way I do it. If I set the levels at 75dB on the initial Audyssey level test, then my trim settings come out at too 'high' for me. This leaves me no...

I understood that it had been officially confirmed at CEDIA, BICBW. No matter, I don't think there's any doubt it's coming. My guess for DTS would be a year away at best. Auro is more interesting as...

I hope the trailers make it onto movie BDs too - similar to the way DTS have done it in the past. I agree with you that a very busy mix makes it quite hard to hear exactly what is going on (STID...

Remember Dolby's advice that the modules should remain within 3 feet of their associated speaker (presumably to aid integration around the 180Hz XO).

That is the important thing. Forget that 75dB thing - it's just a guide. The real objective is to set the sub volume (on the sub) so that the post-cal trim setting is about -6dB or so. This then...

I wasn't sure if it would or not, so the best thing seemed to be to suggesting turning it off. I know it will never be turned on here ;)
