Yes I have the latest firmware. I tried this on roku 3, apple tv, and Comcast. All different hdmi inputs. Comcast I am connected via optical.
Anthem logic does not show up in the mode menu with any 2.0 pcm signal
I can only surmise its a defective product. Or the firmware update went awry. DId you check to see if you have these modes before the update? If not, why not try updating again? Nothing to lose.
Mine was defaulted to Anthemlogic Cinema out of the box.The only think I can think of if is that the firmware update didn't happen properly.
Its a bit fussy. Rejected my older 16GB USB 2 stick. But ok with some freebie 4GB stick. Won't be surprised if sometimes it doesn't update properly.
Yea, why not try updating it with a different stick. The factory reset will not revert the old firmware as it should be overwritten.
Try reinstalling the new firmware. Nothing to lose.
In theory no. The DAC is acting as a passthrough and just passing digital signals to the AVR for conversion. So it really means the DAC is not being used, only as a media streamer. HDMI like optical bitstreams the data through.
Having said that, there have been talks about jitter and clock syncing issues with HDMI. How much of that is really perceptible is debatable.
What is evident is that when playing music through HDMI, there is a half to one second lag before playback starts. Whereas there is slightly less lag through optical. So there you have it.
The point is though, unless you use the analog out from your external DAC, and then enable analog bypass on the AVR, the DAC is not really doing very much. You may as well use HDMI or any basic media streamer to feed digital signals through.
Having said that, the MRX is a capable stereo amp in its own right. And if your room response isn't too bad (check the ARC graphs), then it may be worth using the external DAC and the Anthem just like a stereo amp. Otherwise the Anthem's DAC is very capable in its own right and you get the benefits of ARC and bass management.
Thank you for the answer...
I noticed the lag in HDMI. But I think is better to choose just hdmi connection in order to avoid cable mass and maybe also noise (I think: more cable should means more noise)
As the stereo performance for an AVR is very good for now (I also don't want to spend money) I will not use any external DAC.
I there any site where I can read or see (video) about ARC? I'm verry new in this topic so I'm not sure what and how I should do the ARC.
For example I don't know how to choose the point for the measurement, how to proceed step by step or how to read the graphs and where to pay attention and so on...
As I begin to use the AVR there are some points that I cannot solve...
1) First of all when I listen to the music and I raise up the volume there is a little "tic" coming from the hop that distrub me. Do you know why is it?
2) The volume button has physical a problem. When I raise up and press the button rub again the plastic and it seize up (I hope that I'm clear in the explanation). Is there anybody has this problem?
3) What do you think about video scaling? Should be processed or not? My video card is good enough but I'm not sure about this option. If I use processed, should I do some adjustment on PC?
4) I watch the movies from the PC (I use Splash Pro Ex player). When I pause and then replaying the movie I loose the audio and on the screen of the Anthem it's written no signal. If I stop and play again there is no problem. What do you think? Could be a problem of the Splash player?
Ahh, well, that's mystery solved then! I don't know why Anthem Logic is affected. Maybe they're just critical of your setings!
I just set my speaker config to have to backs. Well it automatically detected I have only 5.1 anyway. So didn't really matter.
All 7.1 content automatically down mixes to 5.1 or 4.1 as necessary. "Phantom Centre" is just a processing thing for 4.0 or 4.1. AVRs are quite capable these days.
Don't worry too much about ARC
Once you install the software, it will take you through step by step on where to place the mic etc. Most important thing is to make sure its pointing straight up and at the listening height. THe autosetup will take care of the rest.
As long as your corrected curves are close the the target curves, you're pretty much there. You can post your results here and any get opinions on how to further optimise. Best part with the ARC1M is that you can do as little or as much as you prefer.
Hi all, I currently have the RF-82 and I wanted to ask if anyone has gone from the Klipsch paradigm (study 60 or 100) and note improvements combined with an Anthem 510.Io are very happy with the Klipsch but I'm curious to hear the Paradigm unfortunately, in Italy it is difficult to find and are very expensive.
First of all thank you Nick and JasonT
I have 4 pages. First page Report details in the second the graph in the third page Config 1 speaker Levels Front Lent : -1dB and Right : -1dB Same also sor Config 2. Config 1 Targets : Crossover : 40 Hz and same for Config 2 and in the last page I have the same graph. (Config 2)
I didn't change anything.
Equalization Cutoffs : 40Hz (Full Range is selected and I cannot change)
Max Eq. Fre: 5000Hz
Room Gain : 4000 (db).
What do you think?
Thanks a lot.
