The "Official" Denon AVR-4311CI/AVR-A100 thread [NO PRICE TALK] - Page 667

I took it out of it's box. It was so heavy I could hardly lift it but I'm not very strong. I think I hurt my back getting it out. I'll need help getting it into the rack.

^ Maybe every 4311 should come with a free gym membership biggrin.gif.

LOL, maybe so.

Oh sure. I didn’t mean to take away from ALL of the terrific help on here - just to comment on the legendary status of you two guys :)

Getting it out of the box, into the rack, and hooked up will be the most difficult part of the process.

 

Theresa - see this bit of the MultEQ FAQ for a good example of what I mean - the part about Dynamic Volume being ON by default on Denons. If you weren't aware of this and didn't spot it, it could make you think your new AVR sounds really odd...

 

g)1.   What is Dynamic Volume?

Thanks for the tip. I wouldn't have thought it would be on by default.

On Denon AVRs, it is set at the end of the Audyssey Setup process ... defaulting to ON (Yes)(Evening) unless changed to OFF (No).

post #19989 of 23176
Thank you for the heads up. It really is so heavy that I'm going to need to find a guy to lift it. I volunteer at a community center so I will ask one of the guys there if he will help in exchange for $.

I ran into Dolby Volume, did any of you use it?

Here was pandora's response for those wondering....

Here are some specs regarding audio quality on Pandora:
Pandora One subscribers get the option of 192k MP3 on the Web and when using the Desktop App.
**Most Home-listening devices get 128k MP3 – whether the account is free or paid.
Cell phones get anywhere from 24k to 64k in mono or stereo, depending on the phone, carrier, connection type, and in some cases the user setting.
The primary benefit of upgrading to Pandora One is no commercials.

^^^That seems kinda weak.
post #19993 of 23176
quick question, how do you know if you setup Audyssey right?. Is it when you can't tell sound is coming from which speaker?
post #19994 of 23176
If you have used either a camera tripod or mic boom stand to support the mic, and you have followed the guidelines listed in the Audyssey 101/FAQ listed in my sig, then it's likely been setup correctly.

Yep I did use the tripod.

Help. Got 2 new matching subs today to replace single old sub. Waiting for 2 new front mains. Connected 1 new to SW2 with old sub still on SW1 just to check if new does work. Get nothing from SW2. Connected new sub and cable to SW1 and new sub and cable work. I don't want to rerun Audyssey until new Fronts get here. I see that I will need to tell Audyssey to measure 2 subs when I do the rerun but I thought the 4311 would sense the SW2 and just use it. This is not important as I now know for sure the new subs and cable work but I am now worrying that when I get the new fronts and run Audyssey that the SW2 out is not working!eek.gif Do I need to worry or change something else or should SW2 work when I rerun Audyssey with the proper settings?? SWMBO is not enthusiastic about the $$ I am spending so it is extra important that this project goes well.biggrin.gif

Thanks for any advise.

EDIT: I am running 9.1 now and going to 9.2

no, it will not just "sense" the new subwoofer, it's not a Jedi wink.gif

you need to change the configuration settings to let it know that there is a 2nd sub, in which case it will want you to re-run Audyssey. You can test this by changing the setting temporarily.

THANK YOU Soooooooooooo Much MR Batpig! smile.gif

Now Please forgive my laziness but what configuration setting. I looked in the manual index and checked all references to subwoofer and I only see references involving Audyssey..

Under Audio Config, select Speakers, and change the setting for the subwoofer from 1 to 2. As Batpig mentioned, this will turn off Audypssey until you re-run the calibration.
post #20000 of 23176
although, as an FYI, changing the setting back from 2 to 1 will restore Audyssey, so it's not like you jump off the cliff of no return when you change the setting to test.

The specific location is Manual Setup > Speaker Config > Subwoofer

batpig, you have to revise your last post. I mean 20,000 posts in the thread and yes, you were the one to hit it. Next time perhaps Powerball instead!!!

Yeah, coming up on 700 pages. Now someone needs to go through this entire thread, then cut and paste every crucial post to a new 4311 fact thread and tips thread that is locked...not allowing any comments. I mean I can't even keep up with this thread and I am a 4311 owner. I know I will dive into this thread, with its info hidden throughout it, in the future, because no I don't have it all figured out spec for spec...feature for feature...but plan to try to get close eventually...I hope. This dude currently abides with his small amount of know how.

I'm looking at this graph after my measurement, I have no idea what it means or called. Anyone care to post a link or explain it to me?
post #20007 of 23176
What graph?

FYI -- when you post something on the Internet, other people can't see what you are looking at. It's similar to talking on the phone in this respect.

Was excited to see an update to the denon app in the AppStore. I was sure I was going to get to use it in landscape mode on the iPad. Silly me. The programmers seemingly have not figured out how to use their iPads in landscape like the rest of the world yet.
