So, I bought a Yamaha HYR-7065(An RX-V773 equivalent) from Costco yesterday. I ran the YPAO multi-listening setup for 5 positions, basically just 5 seats on two different couches. I then tested out some tv and noticed this annoying kind of digital sound coming from my center. I went back into the audio setup and saw that the Parametric EQ was set to Flat. I tried the different settings and found that I like it without the parametric eq. The problem is that the volume is way too low with it off. And, add to that, Yamaha tech support told me that if I turned off the EQ that I may as well have to used the YPAO setup. He also claimed that if I set all my speakers as small so all the bass would go to my two subs, that it was wrong and would also mess up YPAO. Is this true? I am coming from an Onkyo TX-SR608(has HDMI issues and out of warranty), where it seemed to have more power than this receiver. Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
