Hopefully someone here can help with a couple of answers:
When setting up analog outs on the Oppo BDP-103 going to a Lexicon MC12 where I intend to use 7.1 logic 7, I have the Oppo's analog down-mix set for 5.1 and speaker configuation set to Small.
Would like to find a correct solution via a question about when the Lexicon MC12 processor's speaker setup has the speakers already set to Small and the Center speaker crossover is set @ 120Hz and all the others speakers are set @ 80Hz.
If I choose the 80Hz crossover choice on the Oppo BDP-103, will that leave frequency room for the Lexicon to to additionally crossover the Center speaker @ 120Hz or do I have to set the Oppo's speaker settings to 120Hz for the Lexicon to crossover all the other speakers @ 80Hz ???
2nd question: What should be for the Oppo's distance setting for the speakers when using analog outs if the Lexicon already has distance adjustments for the speaker that are already set?
Thanks for suggestions.
Paul, you should not be trying to do Crossover processing in two places at the same time.
If the Lexicon is actually doing Crossover processing for its multi-channel Analog input then you should set speakers Large in the OPPO -- which will disable the Crossover processing in the OPPO.
Now, for the Lexicon to do that, it will need to digitize that Analog input, process it (e.g., for Crossover, but possibly other stuff as well), and then re-convert it BACK to Analog for output.
If the Lexicon is NOT doing that for the multi-channel Analog input, then it is likely that its Crossover processing is also not happening when using that input, so setting speakers to Small in the OPPO is OK.
