If you recall, I measured .9V with the AVR sub trim at -4.5. I tweaked the sub gains so that the Audyssey calibration results in a sub trim of -5, which provides a bass level at the MLP of 75-76dB,...

I have everything dialed in now with the MiniDSP set for .9V. Is there any reason to switch to 2V and go through the whole process again?

My MiniDSP has a label saying it is REV A. Does it...

Whew, you had me concerned there for a moment. No, I am outputting with the AVR inn Stereo mode, with the signal going to the sub channel by virtue of bass management. It should not be 10dB low.

All due respect, d00d, you keep saying things that confuse me. Should I be adjusting the AVR trim to output .9Vrms to the MiniDSP or not?

Tin_Can, are you actually familiar with a Voltmeter? .9Vrms is A/C voltage. The settings on the left side of the Voltmeter are for DC voltage.
