Denon Receiver set to "Pure Direct"
(Iv'e used the microphone on a tripod for automatic speaker calibration)
I only want the highest quality from this receiver to watch my Blu-Ray movies According to the manual "Pure Direct" is the mode to achieve this. Especially now that the PS3 decodes DTS HD MA, my system should now be complete Is there anything else that I can do? It seems simple but sometimes things can be missed.
By the way, I would DEFINITELY recommend using the microphone on a tripod for the automatic setup, I have a fair bit of knowledge in setting up systems and speakers using various EQ methods, however the results from the automatic setup are quite amazing. Just follow the instructions word for word
