I currently have an anthem and have been interested in moving to an altitude 16. I don't care about more than 7.x.4.
Some reasons that altitude is interesting to me are:
- Anthem has 1 sub output. I'd like ability to control crossovers separately for my shakers vs my subs. I think altitude will allow this, can anyone confirm?
- Anthem doesn't have that "double bass" feature that some AVR's have. I would use it (again for my shakers) mainly for my games preset. In other words, I'd have my fronts crossed over at say 60hz. The subs at 60hz. But then the shakers, which are sub #2
to the trinnov would be crossed over at 100hz and receiver all sounds from 0-100hz. Possible?
- One of my main features I use on anthem is virtual inputs. I read the trinnov manual and think it works the same. Basically, I can create an input, assign this input a physical HDMI in lets say HDMI1, then on that input I can tell it what to do with 2 channel (leave it or upscale it), I can set which speakers are enabled or disabled, I can set which crossover points are used etc. Then I can create another input and also assign HDMI1 to it. Physically it's the same, but I can reconfigure all the above.
- Ideally, I'd have an input for "PC Movies". This would have 7.2.4 enabled, movie crossovers, and upscale all my audio to atmos.
- Then "PC Music". This would output in say all channel stereo. I'd enable my front left/right, my rear left/right but at -6db, disable my surrounds and ceiling speakers. Enable center at -6db, enable subs crossed over at 40hz but sub #2
crossed over at 100hz. Is something like this possible?
Looking at the manual, it appeared to me that all this was possible. It also looked like the IP control allowed for basically full control of picking presets, volume settings etc.
