Part of it might be them, and part of it may be us. If we have direct radiator subwoofers (as I do, unfortunately), that require wide cone excursion, and if the recordists are actually pumping in...

I agree with Keith and mthomas that a 2 channel stereo source would have no true LFE information to upmix, but, with bass management, the lower bass information on each of the 2 channels of a CD can...

My Audyssey light doesn't go off when changing size, Xovers, distances or levels.

My Marantz manual is confusing, as well. They need to hire a good writer to read through their manuals and...

I had REW set up differently than most people here, or on the REW USB mic thread. I was using a calibrated Dayton mic going through a mic preamp and power supply (M-Audio). It stopped working, so...

All I know is that (I think) I remember Chris K saying that "LARGE," (taken alone) means "Don't send anything to the subwoofer" (approximate quote, from memory). Naturally, with LFE + Main, and...

I was surprised at the shape of the bass control curves. Is the bass control ineffective below about 70/80 because it affects the mains only, and you are crossing over to the sub at about 70/80? I...

Not sure what you mean, but the Bass & Treble control settings can be set differently for Blu-ray, SACD, etc., and those settings will persist until I change them. But, since there is more within...

This is a common problem -- I certainly have it! For movies I just about have to use the sub, for the LFE.

For music, I sometimes turn off the sub and re-set the fronts for "Large." Another...

Haven't measured, but, if those tone controls are anything like the ones on our Marantz pre-pro, they are effective only over a range of +/- 6 dB, which can help, but is nothing like the +/- 18 to 20...
