5. set level to 0 db?
should i run audyssey to get the distance and level first and after that disable audyssey before i run Dirac?
If you are asking when you need to do before running a calibration, the answer is "None of the above." Calibration happens between the 88a, your amps, and your speakers...meaning that everything before the 88a can even be powered off.
After your calibration is done, the answers largely depend on your particular setup, and what you are trying to achieve, but, in general
, the answers look like:
1) Yes, assuming you have at least one sub.
2) Depends on your available choices, and your speakers/subs, but as I recall 120 is typical?
3) Depends on your available choices, and your speakers/subs, and is ultimately determined by looking at the measurements, and knowing your speaker's capabilities (aim for 80 or below to avoid localizing the sub, if possible)
4) Zeroed out, since Dirac takes care of this.
5) Dirac will take care of channel level calibration, so zeroed out is appropriate.
Unless you are playing with having some speakers uncorrected via Dirac, you don't care at all about measured distances, so no need to run Audyssey. But do make sure that Audyssey is off once you are running your Dirac calibration filters.
