A friend of of mine that also has LX801 but different other hardware than me has a strange problem.
His front speakers are Thivan EROS-9 horn speakers with 99db sensitivity and a Klipsch RC-64 mk-3.
Also smaller Klipsch surround speakers in a 7.1 setup with a 80Hz crossover.
He uses a 2ch integrated amp for the front speakers preout.
The problem he has is that his better half want’s to watch movies in really low volume.
When his LX801 is used in Symmetry, Direct mode (or any other mode) the dialogue is very bleary/vague.
When he goes from -35db to -25db almost nothing happens to the clarity.
or volume. But suddenly a bit higher the voices get ultra clear as they should sound. It sounds like the dialogue
is muddled by bass to me.
He suspect that LX801 does not handle ultra sensitive speakers well.. My question is, does anyone else with
Klipsch speakers have this problem?
Btw he had a smaller Klipsch center before that didn’t behave this way.
