My AVR A100/4311 lost its current Audyssey calibration due to a power outage. It's a known occasional odd glitch of the 4311. The quickneasy fix simply requires using Denon Network Load to restore the Saved Denon settings file. That is, if
you've remembered to do a Save.
Apparently in the excitement of the new speakers and the press of day-job work I'd forgotten to do a Save.
No prob. I just got out the laptop and fired up Pro. I reloaded my last Pro cal measurement file and recalc'd the filters.
The short story and bad news is that, just as AustinJerry has reported, the "2 subs get the same settings" bug has not been fixed and is indeed evident on reloading a filel.
The long story and good news is that this led to more experimentation and better SQ for me. Some of the below is also posted in the 4311 thread but I thought I'd include it here too.
So this time I decided to calculate using the Pro top-ranked (below Large) xover, which for my gear/room is 40 Hz, rather than the 80 Hz I'd been opting for prior. I wanted to hear if this would sound any better. In addition, I'd chosen 80 before, primarily to send more of the lowest freq signals to the subs. This helped keep the subs "awake". And it offloaded some significant work a tough octave from 40-80Hz from the fronts to the subs. Neither of these factors is really important to me now.
One, I ran a cable connecting my Velo subs as "Master-slave", so a single touch of the sub remote turns both subs on or off and digital Vol adjustments. Therefore I no longer have them in Auto-off mode and they can't fall asleep at inopportune times.
Two, each of the front R/L speakers has two 8" woofers so they can easily handle the lowest octave of music from 40-80Hz. And I have an Emotiva XPA5 driving the sats so there's plenty of power.
So how does it sound now? It sounds fabulous. Subjectively the bass is certainly as good and may be even better. Solid, impactful, tight and palpable, just how I like it.
Not only that, but this 40 Hz setting helps me with a new agenda item: correcting the 10 dB loss in DSD LFE from MC SACD. I've posted more on that in Bill Mac's thread
on the topic.
