Multiple channel volume settings per input source?

227 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  avsames

Attached is my 7.1.2 home theater speaker layout. The highlighted area "A" is my desk while "B" is my couch. Sometimes, I like to listen to an input src, (ie: CD's) at my desk. I adjust the speaker channel volume settings accordingly, (fronts and center are set low while the rears are set higher, ...etc). Other times I will listen from my couch which requires setting the channel volume settings again. Do any receivers offer a way to save, load multiple settings so I don't have to adjust them each time?

There are many AVRs that allow you to save/load a config file via a web interface (although it is usually a painfully slow process, ~10 minutes or so). Alternately, there are many AVRs that allow you to control channel levels via an app...slightly easier than how you are doing it now, but still a pain.

If it was me, I would just live with the less-than-ideal sound at one location and optimize the system for where I spent the majority of my listening time.
The Audyssey app for denon/marantz should let you upload different setups pretty fast but its probably easier to set things up for one and only change for special occations.

Looking through the Marantz SR6013 manual (receiver I am interested in purchasing), changing the speaker(s) volume level might be something I can save as a macro with my Harmony Remote (Elite). Maybe it won't solve/automate the issue completely but it might help reduce a number of steps. I'll investigate this further
