Integrated Amplifiers for Digital Sources

Hi,

FWIW I have the new A-S501 and I can say it does not lack any bass. It makes a beautiful pair with my Chane A5RX-C. Although I will be upgrading to the 801 with the upscale USB DAC because I have a...

Reaction Audio Gamma 218, PSA S3000i, Seaton SubMersive. Pick based on price and finish. All will work well.

Yeah if the AVR says +db, it's making the speaker louder. Try not to let the AVR add output since that will cause artifacts.

You should be able to go into Manual adjustment mode and set it to 0db...

Sounds like a setup or amp issue. Does the subwoofer icon light up on your amp?

If yes, I would call SVS to do some troubleshooting.

If not, I would re-do speaker setup with the volume on the...

You will get more watts out of the amp if it is 2 ohm stable. Just match up the driver with the amp specs.

You got a huge volume to fill. I'd go with the most powerful subs you can get. Top of my list would be a couple PSA S3000i.

So you have all that cash and you only bought one Arx A5? WTF?!

BTW are you going to get one of the new A5rx-C to complete your stereo setup? :D

I think you should seriously consider a high gain screen. Many members rave about their 2.4 or 2.8 gain screen. Check out the 2013 shootout thread for more info.

I have one of the early models - maybe Sony changed something later in production.

Thanks for the settings. I'll give them a shot. My room has flat black walls and blinds so light control is good.
