Thank goodness for this Genesis release! I discovered a couple system problems when I did the new Genesis calibration. I knew something was not right with my bass, but I've been to busy to dig into it, lol. Mostly I was starting to blame it on my sub "downgrade" I did a couple years ago. But I also messed up my MSO calibration a while back and that was something I thought could be contributing. That's a bear to do new measurements though, so I just never redid the MSO cal.
But it turns out my balanced miniDSP took a crap and half my subs were not even working anymore! When I looked at the Genesis sub curves I knew it was not how I remembered it, lol, and the bass was "slightly" anemic. In reality though it was "very" anemic, I had just got used to it!
Oh well, miniDSP HD on it's way, which is an upgrade I've been wanting to do ever since I ran MSO. Kind of excited now to do the measurements, run a fresh MSO calibration, get all my subs back on line, do a phase alignment with the mains, and then rerun the subs on my Genesis calibration(which is a very sweet feature of Genesis!).
I also somehow had two different input gain settings on the amps for my LR mains, resulting in a 6 dB difference on the prepro gains after calibration. WTF! Man, I've ignored things far too long!! But I took the opportunity while fixing that to optimize my gain structure by maximally reducing my amp input sensitivity down to like +23 dB, which is quite low. Prior to this I was reducing the output gains on the amps -8 dB to reduce CD hiss, which is NOT the best way to do it! I was able to move my prepro gains from -3 to +6 with my output gains at max with no audible hiss a 2 ft.. Nice!
Gonna be like a new system, haha!
Sorry for long, rather pointless, story. Maybe I'm the only derelict system owner on this thread?
