AV receiver with Mid range tone control

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi

I have the HK AVR 2600 and under tone control I have Treble and Bass.
Is there a receiver that has Treble,Mid and Bass under tone control?

Even my car has these three, and it is annoying to not have it.

Thanks

Most modern receivers do not have it, but many have EQ which would allow you to alter mid frequencies.

Most all of them have eq instead of tone balance these days. A few offer both, most if not all current yamahas allow both to be adjusted.

If you want more mid-range frequencies, then turn down both the bass and treble controls. This will raise the mid-range.


Just my $0.02...

Which ones have an EQ that i can tweak manually? I'd prefer that.

Much of this adjustability is different with the different AVR manufacturers. I will use Onkyo as an example since I know their features the best. Most Onkyo receivers have an adjustable manual EQ. They also have tone controls that can be adjusted along with the manual EQ. This is the part you need to remember. If you're using Audyssey you cannot use the manual EQ. You can however still use the tone control. Which is bass and treble only. No midrange control. I don't think any modern AVRs have a mid control in the tone control. Just bass and treble. So with an Onkyo you could adjust the mid area with the manual EQ if you weren't using Audyssey.

Yamaha has a pretty good manual EQ, it is a limited parametric EQ but it has a lot more flexibility than most receivers that have a manual graphic EQ. You can also copy the Yamaha YPAO settings from its auto EQ and then tweak from there if you like. Most receivers you have to choose between manual and their auto EQ like Audyssey.

Which models of the Onkyo and Yamaha are you folks talking about?

I know the mid range to upper Onkyos are like this. The intro receivers are more limited as far as adjustability. I think this is available starting with the 609 on up.

The basic Yamaha's have a graphic EQ, I think the 671/673 and above as well as the Aventage series has the parametric EQ.

I think I no longer am in the need for the mid control. I discovered Logic7 Movie mode and it has erased my need. Read about it here.
