Should not be a buzz either way.

As to attenuators, they are available for RCA lines as well. I used 12 dB attenuators between my pre-pro and the power amps in order to set up Audyssey with my...

I have a question related to the Great Sub Amp Clipping debate. I honestly don't know the answer.Audyssey sets my pre-pro sub trim to - 7 dB

On most movies it sounds best about 5 dB higher, @ -...

I'd say forget Direct or Pure Direct. In most rooms, with most speakers, I suspect they will produce worse sound than Auto with Audyssey engaged. That's the point of Audyssey!

Wow ... if LFE is redirected to the fronts won't it tend to blow most inexpensive fronts to smithereens? Or does it attenuate the LFE signal by a few dB, or filter out LFE below, say 40 Hz?

I think I agree. And, since, using REW, we can measure response, after the signal has passed through Audyssey correction, that is considerably higher than 12K, it can't have down-sampled to 24 KHz....

Do you think that is true if there are, say, 3 or more listening positions, or only when there is just 1 position that the system can be fine tuned for?

It's my understanding that cinemas in the United States do start out using a fixed Reference level, which is set up with microphones, much like Audyssey is, and using the same FS SPLs. I believe...

Some dealers and manufacturers don't seem to be as cooperative, honest, and knowledgeable as they used to be (e.g., in the 1960s and 70s)*.

I'm not sure what you mean, but, Audyssey calibrates at 75 dB. At one time they tried using the 85 dB level that the professionals use, but they got complaints from HT owners that 85 was too loud. ...

Yes, the (correct, I think) implication of my post is that to use the Klipschorn properly it needs to be used in a corner (1/8 space), and when so doing you get sensitivity of 104/105 db, even though...

Thanks, guys.

I hear that some Blu-ray manufacturers roll-off the treble on the BD itself, so if you used Audyssey Reference, with its roll-off, you would probably get too much roll off. Rumor...

BTW, I think IMAX's sound is overrated. While it is plenty loud, and would read that way on an SPL meter, it doesn't seem to have the frequency balanced impact of the old multichannel...
