I will be very interested in you posting your findings, and if you need help on the configuration or set up, let me know.
Holy crap!!! You were right. This thing is sweet. My Dynaudios are telling me things the Lex was hiding. EVERYTHING is better. Movies sound awesome. The steering is clearly better when using the same codec as the Lex and the DTS-Master and True Dolby HD codecs are just great and I'm happy to be able to finally access them. The analog is what really excites me. Hearing instrument resolution I've been missing for a long time. Really, it's like buying new speakers.
Set up was pretty easy for the most part. Got the LAN connection quickly and it's nice to see what the panel looks like from another room. I do have a question though. I have my Ayre DAC connected via single ended input (CD). I normally used it in bypass mode before and am currently. I select 2-channel bypass and then the CD input below. My question is if I want to, can I use some of the surround modes the SP3 has for stereo inputs? If I select Stereo up top I lose the signal. The manual says (page 4 Surround Mode) when addressing these modes that " These modes derive surround modes from stereo (2 -channel) analog DVD inputs." So are they referring to older stereo codec movies entering via HDMI, just the DVD single end input, or any of the single end inputs? I see that stereo audio from my TIVO DVR can be adjusted, so thinking it must just be that, but if analog music can be manipulated please advise as to how it's done.
Only other observation is that when I first started watching a movie it seemed like the picture was a bit sharper and I thought it a bonus for getting the on screen processor, etc out of the loop. I was fooling around with my K-scape video and audio output options though and started to get a little video noise. Small flecks noticeable against black. That had me worried, but I've been unable to replicate it this morning. Ever had any issues with that? I
