I also has hollow and distant sound. I cranked the sub, and my fronts (all I have -- Klipsch RF-7, SW-310 sub) and it sounds better + plus will get pretty loud at 75 or so.
Shouldn't the Audyssey come up with equalization band changes? When I go to that screen it shows 0db for all bands.
I'm using an old Carver TFM-35x on the fronts. This coupled with my old CT-6 preamp rocks. It seems there is no way to get the preouts putting out the same levels as the old preamp.
I've tried using the internal amps and it sounds basically the same, except amps clip a bit at high volume.
Amazon is sending me replacement unit to try, but I'm looking to see if I can get this one working.
Mine is acting similar. Huge lack of bass from anything DTS related (straight DTS, Master HD 5.1, 7.1, etc)
Chatting with Amazon right now to setup a replacement.
I still wonder if its my PS3 but Ive set it up as best I can find on Google.
Game-wise, playing Need for Speed there is almost nothing going to the sub (oddly enough, on the game opening screen there is more bass than in the game itself)
Movie-wise I checked out Dark Knight (Dolby TrueHD), Cinderella Diamond Edition (DTS Master HD 7.1) and two Diary of a wimpy kid movies (DTS Master HD 5.1)
The Dark Knight seemed to have decent bass. The other 3 lacked it (granted, they arent bass heavy movies, but I wasnt hearing much at all)
Not sure if the Onkyo isnt working correctly on the LFE channel, if the PS3 isnt outputting correctly, etc.
