You can re-assign the two "spare" amps to either rear, heights, wide, zone 2, or bi-amp your mains, but bi-amping really doesn't get you anything. Most here will agree. And with the Rti12's you will...

Great speakers, but be aware they are larger than you would think. Also they cannot be used (practically) as fronts should you ever try them in that position. They do spread the surround sound...

Yeah, as I understand it, Dynamic Volume is comparable to volume compression... it boosts low levels and limits loud peaks. On some AVR's it's referred to as "midnight" or night setting. Dynamic EQ...

Familiar story. Seems to happen to a lot of us here!




Same here... I have the A9's set to 40Hz for HT, and full range (no sub) for music.

Denon 4520 at a minimum. I just bought one new for $1100 so I'm sure you can do better. I tried my A9's on the 3312 and they sounded anemic, so added an external XPA-5, and recently bought an XPA-2...

I can attest to the superiority of the Rti line over the Monitors. Heads and shoulders may be an understatement.
I started with M50's and a BIC sub, moved up to M60's, then M70's. Also had CS1,...

I am moving and need to sell an entire 7.1 Polk sound system, consisting of two M70-II's, M40's, a beautiful CS20 center and a pair of CS2's I was using as surrounds, plus a DSW660pro wireless 12"...

Yes, I noticed on my 2012 model that Audyssey now asks to turn on D/V as the last step. I see this as being like asking if I want cheese on my hamburger. If I wanted cheese I would have ordered a...

Sounds like dynamic volume is on, which Denon sets on by default, and makes everything sound muffled.

Traditionally speakers are measured from the edge of the frame. Seems unfair, as woofers with a wide surround can be advertised as being much larger than they actually are (e.g., BIC-F12) , whereas...

The 12's are beasts though, big and heavy. Read back a few pages regarding speaker break-in... i.e., don't judge your new speakers til after you've used them for a few weeks.

Csi5 is a great match for the 10's and 12's. You can use the Tsi's for surrounds for the time being, but I suspect that eventually you will want to have Rti's all around. Things just work out that...
