I got this thumping sound from my sub after connecting an extra center speaker to the amp of the R-972. I only use the R-972 as a pre/pro normally but I wanted to boost the level of the center channel even with Trinnov on. I turned the R-972 off then I tried disconnecting the extra center to see if the sound came back and it didn't but the a/v room gets too much use for me to do a proper comparison.
Could there possibly be a relationship?
BTW, the boosting by adding another speaker worked great although I admit it's a bit unconventional. The additional center is where the 6th speaker would normally go, about 2ft behind and above me.
The sub thumping usually happens when you switch the unit into standby and the sub is still on. It's a known issue that they all supposedly suffer(hence the pun) from with the R-972 and don't know if there have been any other situations where it would happen as far as speaker configurations.That may be something new.
I have had my 972 for 6 months now and still learning how to fine tune it.
Just finished a Bourne marathon. The first 3 are 5.1 and the last is 7.1.
Before the 972 I was using 7.1 analog into a Denon 4800/5200 combo.
Using the processor in my Oppo I was able to output 7.1 from a 5.1 source.
I have yet to find this ability with the 972. Is it hidden in a menu that I haven't
One more question about the bass targets. I try loading them into my 972
and the display flashes loading and jumps to empty. I have tried reloading
the usb a few times still with the same result. I do only have one target
loaded on this thumb drive. I even tried another thumb drive with music on it
with the exact same results. Any suggestions?
Thanks for the help
If your bitstreaming from the Oppo into the R-972 with HDMI using Hi-Rez audio,I don't believe it will let you upmix to 7.1.I believe it will play a native 7.1 soundtrack if it detects it via bitstream though. I think you have to switch the Oppo to output Hi-Rez PCM to the R-972 to upmix a 5.1 soundtrack to 7.1. Also make sure that auto-surround is set to off in the R-972,otherwise it won't let you pick the surround mode you want to use.It will choose the format that it's set to use.
Make sure your thumb drive is FAT16 formatted.I had the same issue and it was due to using a FAT32 formatted drive. Also make sure that the drive only has the bass file you want to load on it and nothing else.
