Why are you having a difficult time?
Thanks for the info.
As to your question, I think it's a case of teaching an old dog new tricks. All the issues get my head swimming. LFE needs a 10db boost, provided by the amp. Some music sources have the bass 10db down, some don't. HTMI connections get bass management at the receiver (Onkyo TX-SR805) analog connections don't.
I'm using two disc players. I had hoped to be using just one, the new Oppo BDP 83, but with its fan coming on to keep it cool, I'm thinking of just using it for movies, and keeping the Oppo 980 for music. The players have some bass management capabilities built in. I could use different connections for different types of discs, if that's what I need to do to get optimal frequency response from each source.
But it's just hard to keep it all sorted out in my head. ;-)
