Can you expand a bit on "off the charts?"
Sure, I'll try.
I guess by "off the charts" I mean that it is far more enveloping now. I feel the surround channels are much more active than when I had my Denon 3808 running.
They just seem much more detailed than before. I have read that because of the Dynamic EQ the surround channels are better calibrated. I am not sure how Denon implemented MultEQ XT, but the difference between it and the MultEQ XT32 seems to be a big difference, IMO.
After doing the Audyssey calibration, I level all channels with an SPL, so I know that my rear channels are not any higher than before. I have always had everything set to 80db with the sub at 83db on my SPL. So there is no difference between calibration other than the version of Audyssey.
On another note, I need to do some more playing around and testing because when we watched How to Train Your Dragon
last night, the audio kept varying from loud to quiet within scenes. I need to try another TrueHD movie and see if it is an issue with that codec or not. I have not noticed this issue with any DTS Master HD encoded movies.
Let me know if you have any specific questions.
