Yes ARC will set the crossovers in bass management to the values it calculates.

The first one although in a crowed area gives the best response. This one is around 8-10 dB below at 100 Hz and starts to roll off at 60 Hz. This is losing a good deal of the punchy LFE you want in movies which the servo can deliver as you see in the crowded position.

So i guess i have to sacrifice look for pleasure, you think the new arc measurement will give me alot more LFE than the one im currently using? i don't have to many more options on were i can place it,i have the sub set to inverted when its behind the couch,can i switch it back without messing up arc if i put it in the front of the room, i know i can set the distance without upsetting anything,I know it's alot of questions, thanks for the help.

Try it in the crowded area and then listen to it. If it sounds better then use it. If no, nothing to lose. I think you will hear a diff, I did.

jay why do you think im losing the 10db when it's in the front of the room, do i need to use my spl meter again and set it for 75db because its in the front of the room and then run arc. im wondering why my starts at 65db and when i look at your chart it's 75db

Oppo is releasing updates that need a lot of attention. Nothing has changed recently on the D2v. I'm following the thread, but the other experienced posters seem to have things well in hand.

Hi Nick,

Coincidentally this week end I am having an MRX500 for testing, along with my D2v. While uploading ARC measurements to the MRX it also crashed on BSOD.
I eventually solved the problem and I thought you should know the solution.
As I said, my USBtoCOM cable always worked with my D2v and my previous Lenovo laptop. So of course i was suspecting the Toshiba.
This Toshiba is loaded with features and some of them were dubious (I am a network engineer, I have a knack for these things). So I disabled the CPU overclocking, and the Virtualization CPU enhancement.
After that I was able to upload my measurements fine.
Later i will be posting some graphs that compare ARC measurements between the D2v and the MRX500 in the same room, same speakers, same power amps.
That should be interesting.

Regarding crossover. The correct crossover, isent that where the
- 6 dB curts are?
post #32232 of 42682
can anyone give me any advice as to why after running arc my charts have my db set so low, before i ran arc i followed the instructions as far as using my spl meter and 0 out the left speaker and raise noise level to 75db and changed my sub to 75db using it's volume control.

I thought we had come to the consensus that there is a charting error and we haven't yet found the circumstances where this occurs on some systems / computers.

If it still sounds the same volume and you aren't setting the main volume a lot higher than you used to listen to things just ignore it.

I am in the same boat but I have read here several places that it is nothing to worry about, are you using Vista?

That's a new one! Thanks, good info. Are those features on by default?

He said 1600x1200 video OUTPUT (probably driving a CRT projector like me) which is regardless of the source input. I was actually planning to run my Barco at 1600x900 (because 1080p is too much for it) and the glossy brochures for the 50V said any resolution could be done.

Now I find out from ANTHEM Tech support that the LiveVideoSettingsEditor software is currently broken and doesn't work at all on the 50V. So regardless if the hardware can support it there is no software or firmware that can set up the custom resolutions. Apparently engineering is too busy working on the MRX software and we will be waiting for a while.

I consider this to be a deficiency in the current product and plan to bring this to ANTHEM management. It would help if other customers pressed this issue too. There are many other uses for the software which I haven't even got into yet.

Besides my last post it's an unannounced soft launch so to clarify adapters were added to new production recently but as for how much time it takes for a new unit to go from production floor to the factory's warehouse then to US customs and to our customs broker's warehouse in Buffalo who keeps stock, and from there to your dealer, which is normally via ground... I don't have a very good idea.

John, I knew Nick worked for Anthem but just missed Bob's know all posts, if he isn't getting paid by Anthem or Oppo he deserves to be. There is no one on the AVS that is equal to him or his knowledge.

I guess Bob has decided to take a break and see how well his training has paid off to the other thousands that he has always given advice to. I think we will still be in good hands until Bob decides to return.

Does anyone know when the final version of firmware 1.47f will be released for the D2? I haven't seen it mentioned here for a while, and I'd like to be able to take advantage of the HDMI handshake improvements in final version.

Also, I notice that a password is now required to access downloads in the D1/D2 archive section on the Anthem Statement website. What's up with that?

If your D2 has the correct transformer or video card I would not hesitate to use firmware 1.47f. i have been using it since its original release and it works excellent.
I emailed Customer Support to ask about the new password protected archives.
It does seem silly.

The whole Anthem line missed out on the latest Sterophile Buyers Guide? Wonder who missed the boat on that one?

Just picked up the latest, (2011) Sterophile Buyers Guide, (www.stereophile.com), and not one listing for Anthem in the Pre/Pro or Amps.

This is really a bad miss one would think?

I didn't touch anything and all sounds fine.

I posted the observation of the ommission to the Stereophile web site forum and got the following response back?

Picked up my 2011 Stereophile Buyers Guide and as I leafed through, noticed that my beloved Anthem D2v Pre-amp,($8,995 list), and Anthem P5 amp ($5,595), were not listed and in fact, none of the latest new releases from Anthem in the Integrated section are listed????

thanks for the compliments bob

regarding anthem, the BG is collected in the following manner: Manufacturers are sent spreadsheets to complete/update their product lineup (their lineup is updated if the spreadsheet has been completed in the past). Anthem did send me their completed spreadsheet, but it did not include the products you list above.

I believe the D2V and P5 represent some of the finest examples of their respective audio sections and am so surprised at the ommission from it seems, Anthem.

I can only assume this is a simple mistake and not a product marketing notification of direction for Anthem?
