thanks, and splitting the signal wont make it too week? just want to make sure before I return my current sub and get an amp and build a custom enclosure.

It won't be too weak. People use Y-cables with subwoofer outputs all the time.

thanks for the reply. im new to home audio, what amps are recommended? I need it to be under 500 for sure. it has to have rcas, and more than 1000watts per channel rms at 4 ohms. are behringer amps decent? it doesn't have to be the best amp, it just has to work and be cheap. also not break the first time I use it. there epx4000 is less than 400 and claims 1200watts rms per channel at 4 ohms. so probably 1000 realistically. that sounds like it would be good. and it is one of the few home audio amps ive found with rcas.

I'd ask that question in the subwoofer forum.

what is the lowest frequency my RX-V375 will put out through the LFE pre out to my sub? will it go lower than 20hz?

The pre-out is not going to limit the LFE.

right, but sense its the sub out, I was wondering if it would put out lower frequencies than the normal speakers that are 20hz-20khz.

It will put out as low a signal as it receives. Whether your sub can play it or not is another matter.

New owner of v675, Fry's had it on sale and it was cheaper than Denon/Sony, Onkyo was out of consideration so I picked it up.

- I see Yamaha has a lot of unique dsp modes named after concert halls etc, are these just gimmicks and different names for what other companies use or do they really make a difference?
- I've read that YPAO often sets all speakers as large, and doesn't eq the sub, so is it better to just set them manually to small and then set sub crossover according to brand?
- does DLNA work reliably on this? I want to play music from my laptop and don't have an Apple device. I could always install iTunes if Airplay is better but would rather not

I have the RX-V375 model. Does anyone have theirs hooked up to their Xbox 360? I've got a nice set of Klipsch speakers (5 channel) set up with a Sony sub (at the moment) in a small room. I've done the initial setup with the microphone to let the system "listen" to my room and speakers. I haven't really decided on what pre-programmed setting to use for when I'm gaming. I don't like a lot of echo or what sounds like a large hall, so I typically set it to Roleplaying Game. Wondering if there is a better option or if custom settings are available that would suit me better. Thanks, in advance.
post #251 of 1035
If you don't like a lot of echo then just set it to Straight and be done with it. The game sound designers spend a lot of time and effort crafting those sounds. Why mess with it?

Same goes for movies and music. I guess I just don't understand why anyone likes to add artificial echo to their sound playback...
post #252 of 1035
Yea I was also wondering that. I have just been keeping it on straight because none of the other settings sound natural.

IMO all the budget amps sound similar. Some sound better than others, by a small margin, depending on the calibration.

I probably don't know how to do calibration properly (just used MCACC and YPAO and then flipped through the presets) but I tried the 375 next to the Pioneer and found that the Yamaha was much clearer. I could hear a lot more detail in music and it all just sounded less fuzzy. Needless to say, I returned the Pioneer!

They are proprietary DSPs, but much the same as the ones used by other companies, using delays and echoes to simulate room characteristics.. Try them and see if you like them.

Lots of calibration systems set speakers to large when they should be small. You can make that change and you can raise the crossover after running YPAO. What do you mean by "set the sub crossover according to brand"?
post #255 of 1035

I'm not getting any sound from my SVS sub. YPAO set the speakers to small and set the sub level to -5dB which I increased. But the sub still barely outputs any sound, even with test tones in the setup. I previously only had to set the sub to 1/4th gain, now it has to be turned all the way up just to hear a faint hum and the receiver is definitely not sending proper LFE signals.

My sub is also very quiet. I tried connecting it directly to the audio out on my tv, and that makes it significantly louder gegaurdless of what I have the gain set to. Also it sets my sub to -7 almost every time. Which is rediculously low IMO. I'm actualy returning the sub and am going to build my own setup with 2 15s, because of how pathetic the bass response is.
I currently have a jbl es250p subwoofer.

Return your receiver.

Fry's has the RX-V675 in their weekly ad for $399 (until tomorrow)

I had been planning to pick up a Denon x2000 at Best Buy (price matching Rakuten's $549 price), but now this has me thinking.

Assuming Best Buy would price match that sales ad, at $150 cheaper than the x2000, would the 675 be a better choice, is the x2000 that much better?

Spec wise I dont see that the x2000 is any better. Am I missing something?

Audyssey XT would be one improvement in the x2000. I'm not familiar enough with both to know all the differences though, which is why I'm looking for a little feedback.

Its unlikely you will find someone very familiar with both models. I would look at all the specs and go from there. Personally I would get the 675. Especially for the money. Good luck.

Would Best Buy honor an out-of-state in-store ad?

Unlikely but worth a try.

I don't know yet.

They will honor the online price from competitors I know, not sure about a sales ad.

I am currently having them price match the x2000 using the Rakuten (Buy.com) price listed on their website, and they match that.

Supposed to be in the deals section but Fry's has had the RX-V675 for $299 and the AVR-E400 for the same $299... they keep rotating the hits.

Do they have that listed on their site anywhere? I didn't see it.
post #267 of 1035
I just purchased the 675. Frys had it for 299 back in June, missed that deal. The 399 is an in store deal only. Although I have an issue with not getting sub output from the receiver.

Hey All,

Wondering if someone can suggest a work around for this. Trying to figure out how to output Chromecast Audio from a HDMI input to Zone B Audio? Is there a cheap device that I can use to get this to work? Or can I plug the Chromecast into something else and output the audio to Zone b some how?

I'm I screwed and need to upgrade to the 775 to get Party mode?

Curious if you ever got ARC to work correctly......
I recently bought a Panasonic TC-L58e60 and a Yamaha v375 and the ARC worked on initial setup. But after power cycling units it won't. You have to go back into Yamaha setup and turn HDMI Control off and then on again to get ARC to work again, Did you find a way to get it to work appropriately, please share if you did.
Thanks

It may have to do with the order in which you power on the devices.
