My 2309 showed up today
Anyone that has seen my posts knows that I'm a total noob but I'll throw out some early impressions along with some dumb questions..
Nice lookin reciever, seems heavy and well built. Was a little underwelmed with the text on the reciever and extremely underwelmed by the setup GUI, I would feel ever worse if I got the 2909 like I wanted!
Audessy setup seemed quick and painless..
Ok, dumb questions...... I don't have rear speakers so am intending on running a 3.1 setup, front R/L, Center and Sub.
What is the best surround mode for 3.1 setup?
I was expecting to see Dolby digital or one of the fancy new settings but didn't see those options available?
I only looked at a DVD which I have connected through hdmi and it originaly set the audio to Stereo, when I turned the volumne up I had to turn it WAY up to about -10 dB to get a decsent volume (just like gamer2600), is this normal? Same volume on the FM radio and that's as far as I've gotter.....
I'll post more tomorrow after I've really played with it but wanted to get a post out
