To use your sub woofer with a stereo setup you have to use Analog Dig which also turns on ARC.
For critical stereo listening with good audiophile sources anything but Analog Direct is detrimental to the sound.
To maximize the system for stereo you should be using the two stereo RCA output connections on the OPPO into the Analog inputs of the D2v.
For SACD Stereo listening you can set the OPPO on PCM and use the HDMI connection from the OPPO to D2v. For Multi channel use the OPPO 7.1 analog outputs to the D2v multi channel analog inputs.
When you have everything setup and working properly the way you like let me know and I will turn you on to playing the ultimate audiophile sound DSD.
DSD is amazing. Nothing like it and far exceeding Hi Rez 192/24 downloads or upsampling.
Thanks "thestewman". My problem is sound, and I am trying to optimize that. If you have not read my earlier posts, this is my equipment:
Sony 5400ES (CD, SACD)
P5 from Anthem
All Paradigm Speakers, S-8's, S-2's, C-3, Sub25; basically a 5.1 arrangement.
I know when you say no sub under Analog Direct, but if you do Audio Processing setting in Oppo and say ON to Sub, set speakers to small, and set a crossover setting, then I think Oppo will engage the sub, correct me if I am wrong, or maybe you mean to say to be pure analog say OFF to sub, and set speakers to large and just play pure Analog Direct.
In my Sony 5400ES there is no choice; when you go analog, no crossover, etc., but it has Left and Right channels only as Analog outs.
Now as of SACD's and DVD-A's also I can and would like to use Anlg DIR, therefore I have the Oppo Analog Output connected to the D2v 6-ch analog inputs, but I am saying ON to sub, and applying crossover, if I say OFF to Sub under Oppo Audio Processing Speaker Configuration, then I will lose the sub channel from the SACD's, DVD-A's also, so I think you have to say ON to sub and apply crossover, and that sort of defaults to saying Small for speakers. Please help and advice. Thanks.
