Only other thing I adjusted was video conversion and I turned it off, noticed the screen was flashing black at times with the sound still going through.
But if anyone who has fiddled around with all their settings could post theirs it would be much appreciated.
I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong, but my understanding is that, if set to large, all bass (except that within the LFE channel) will be sent to the speakers, instead of the subwoofers, so I’m not sure what purpose setting the crossover is serving, as everything is heading the speakers way anyway.
That aside, I always thought the recommendation was to select ‘small’ as the speaker type, unless your speakers are truly full range - which 99.9% aren’t. I know that when I first started with surround sound, I was using decent sized floorstanders and so set them as ‘large’, when I should have set them to small (I think a better nomenclature should have been used, but we have to live with small/large).
I’m not familiar with the ML range of speakers, so did a quick google, and read a very complimentary review of the 60XTs; but I still don’t believe they’re ‘full range’ within the definition being used by the AVRs, so you may
be better off setting them to small, and crossing over with your subwoofers. Having said that, try both, and see which you prefer, as it’s your setup, not mine.
As for the rest of the settings, I’m keen, like you, to see what other people have done/recommend to see if I’ve missed anything.... or rather, to stop me missing anything, as I’m going to pick up my AVR later today!
