Hi guys, I have a question. I have a AVR-S910W and was wondering if it's normal for my Audyssey setting to HAVE to be enabled (set to reference)
If i turn the EQ off, everything gets super quiet and to get it back to the levels of Audyssey being on, I have to turn the volume to about 70-80...that's 3/4 full, which doesn't seem right at all.
Overall, with EQ on, the bass is WAY louder coming out of the SVS subs...with EQ off there is no punch...which I really don't like...not sure I want my subwoofers EQ'd.. the .1 signal is supposed to be pure and handled by the sub, NO?
I watched Mad Max (EQ on) and had to keep turning the sub down, it was boomy, borderline annoying, but turn EQ off and it was barely there....why is this receiver messing with LFE output when there's no setting to adjust it to my knowledge?
Another example. Watching FRIENDS, the brief music in between scenes, there are some great bass moments where it gets really low and loud and deep...and again with the eq off, it sounds like TV speakers...just no bass, no substance overall from the rest of the speakers.
My old Pioneer (Vsx-1021k) never had this issue. I could turn EQ on or off, and there would be minor difference in sound, but nothing this drastic and volume overall remained at a constant level.
I have turntables hooked into the receiver so any Audyssey or eq crap puts a very noticeable delay between the sound output and the headphones. So when I play music I have to turn it off and pump the volume to like 80...this seems really weird to me.
Is there something wrong with my receiver???
My Bluetooth quit working too..it will connect, display the ID/Time but nothing comes out of the speakers..

I did set all speakers to small. Odyssey sets them to large, because they are, but everything i read, people say to set your speakers to small and x-over at 80, which again, I don't really understand, when you have 4 big ass towers capable of producing great sound down to 36HZ, why cut them off at 80...wouldnt bookshelf speakers serve the same purpose?
Hope to hear some feedback from you guys, thanks!
