Hi guys, this is the first time that i write in this thread(and generally in this forum), but i've some question to make to the owners of 5004.
First, i'm a owner from the end of 2009, and, like many others, my unit was hit by POD in October 2011. My system is 5.0 without sub, because now i spent my money to buy the other speakers(last month): Tannoy Eyris 3 for the front, Eyris DCC for the centre(all in bi-wiring connection), Eyris 1 for the rear. Well, my questions about 5004: what's the best setting i have to put on the unit to make work correctly front speakers with lfe channel(large/small, LPF/LFE level) ? When i use SOURCE DIRECT/PURE DIRECT, does the manual equalatation of the speakers work or not? And with AUTO? In bi-wiring configuration, the best position of the rear button is OFF or C? Finally, i'm very proud for this receiver, the sound in Source direct(not a great cd player, but for my use works well: Toshiba HD-XE1) in very impressive, and i restart to listen my olds Cd after 6-7 years!
Thaks to all!
