My initial Report
Been very busy. First chance I had to report. I resolved the Vintage Audio issue with a quick phone call to the supervisor.
More details to come when I have more time to listen & plan on using my XTZ Pro as well. Below is my summary.
The Vanity, Oppo and Trinnov combo works perfectly.
The sound is amazing, clear and very realistic.
The VNC viewer (phone & PC app) is the best way to control/calibrate the Trinnov. The web page is only good to set up the i/o and some configurations like BM.
The (VNC's) GUI is more than I could have dreamed. It gives all the Meta data I could ever want. The bitrate. I love the meters. I was considering getting amps just because they had meters. I might just get the touchscreen so I can see all the audio's metadata.
Everything coming out of Tivo is 48khz, even non HD 2 channels & Netflix. I didn't know TiVo resamples everything. I wonder if I could turn that off. I will email TiVo.
Netflix from Oppo is 44.1khz. I had some SACD's that registered as 88khz. Every BD I tried is 48khz.
The installer calibration (I had 2 people advise me) was what I pretty much predicted earlier, just leave the defaults & run. The installer claimed that most of the installer time is spent on connection issues.
I had 2 errors/issues that my installer could not resolve though. One error a quick search in AVS solved. Thanks Curt!
My surrounds are pretty close to the MLP & gets annoying so I turned them off axis. Trinnov didn't like that and could not calibrate. Interesting, Audyssey has no problem.
The other issue is that the optimizer claimed my sub was too low. I think the (balanced to RCA) transformer makes the volume lower?
Possibly related: JL sub's auto turn on doesn't work with the transformer, in fact it shuts off while it's playing if I leave it on auto. I'll have to email JL Audio on how to install the transformer correctly.
For now, I turned the sub's volume to max and then the optimizer worked.
The only weird thing about the Optimizer is that target curve is straight? Is there a place I can download other target curves? My speakers have a rolloff design, I would think it is counterproductive to *force* it to not have a rolloff?
Also, my VP is not compatible with the Optimizer so I have only one input now. The audio is just not syncing properly. I will email Lumagen if there is a solution. Mentioning this so people should be aware of possible issues installing Pro device with consumers. Although, at less than a third the price of a full blown Altitude, I think worth the little stuff.
Sincerely thank you Trinnov!
