I had the gain problem with my earlier AVP, an ancient Parasound 2500U so I upped the gain in my Dirac 88a to compensate and that setting serves very well with the Outlaw too.

Seems to have plenty...

I posed this question to SVS as well and they recommended putting the speakers in the corners at the correct height.

So I did that and it seems to work quite well.

Thanks to everyone for their...

New 7.1 system setup question

I'm finally emerging from the dark ages of 5.1 and my ancient, but oh so excellent Parasound AVP and have switched to the Outlaw 975 for processing and HDMI switching and added a two channel Onkyo...

It is a 7.1 system.

The two options are easy to visualize. The first one puts the speakers on the back wall behind the left and right edges of the seating area but over three feet too high. I'd...

Have to make a compromise location on rear speakers. Which is best?

I'm looking at the 975 as a basic and hopefully pretty transparent preamp. I don't need or want video processing, all my sources are 1080P and my JVC 57 projector upscales to their faux version of...

Thanks. I am looking at a 7702 now but it does have a lot more stuff than I need. I don't need the Audessey as I have Dirac, don't need video processing, all those HDMI inputs and outputs. My JVC...

I'm converting to a 7.1 surround setup. Fronts are KEF powered by a Sunfire Cinema Grand amp 5 channel. Subwoofer is powered and fed from the preamp.

Rears are SSS-01s also running off the...

I don't see them either. And now that I think about it I haven't seen them on receivers for years either.

That is what comes from being an old fart. :)
