I guess I'll just break down and get the U.S. release. Hopefully Criterion will get a hold of the rights and do the film justice in the future.

I still think Man of Steel is largely the best sounding Blu-ray out there. The Smallville battle is an excellent showcase scene.

The bass in Don't Breathe is just brutal throughout most of the movie. Walls were shaking like they do during the Edge of Tomorrow credits and War of the Worlds. Ridiculous. Great movie too.

Is Mid Range Compensation applied when Audyssey is set to flat? Sorry, this is a large thread.

Good for you, I guess. Maybe some of us aren't interested or don't have the funds or space to accommodate such a setup. Maybe some of us are content with hearing the bass as opposed to being punched...

I've run a test and the F12 went down to around 24hz in my room, so whatever. No, I don't have an SPL meter. Human hearing can't reach below 20hz anyway, so I don't care to spend thousands of dollars...

That's weird. Audyssey didn't show it as being out of phase or anything. I wonder why it's a lighter shade of blue than the other speakers on that display.

When pressing the Info button, does the C for center channel on Active Speakers show up as a different shade of blue than the other speakers, or is it just me? Any reason for this?

How is that different from what I already did? Sorry, but I'm not understanding. With the subwoofer set to 50%, Audyssey set the subwoofers to -12db. Put the F12's perform better at around 25%, so I...

Their product page makes no mention of it not being able to decode DSD such as from an SACD. Hell, the product description distinctly mentions SACD when promoting High-Res Audio.

Well, that...sucks. Is there any loss with the Oppo decoding and sending as PCM? It sounded fine to my ears.

Thanks!




The F12's really become overwhelming at anything above 40-50% and tend to play best in the 20-30% range. The F12's are punchiest and more accurate at 20-30%, which is where I like to...
