If it hasnt been answered, hes also hearing the direct source as well. Bad source +no EQ = Not great sound.
To be honest I wouldnt even mess with pure direct. Also theres another trick but you have to go into receiver settings and select 2.1. Some give the option of phantom center, some just defualt to phantom center. I run this mode in my living room since my center had to be in a cubby and sounds crazy bad and boomy.
I dont know if denon saves the audyssey calibration for each mode, like say if you flip from 7.1 to 5.1 and 2.0 on another source, or 7.1 to 2.1. I dont know how that all works, if you need to recalibrate for each setting?
