I have a Pioneer 45A DVD player, Pioneer 43TX receiver, and Infinity IL60/IL36/IL10 speakers. The 45A has limited bass management for SACD, but no channel delay, and according to two reviews I've read (including S&V) DVD-A has channel delay but no bass management. What a mess--but the 45A was still more capable in terms of bass/delay than almost anything in this price range when I bought it, and nowhere near the cost of combos like the Pioneer 49TX/47Ai that bring the audio digitally into the receiver for processing. Buying an Outlaw ICBM is tempting, but I'd rather save the $ for a next generation DVD-A or SACD player with full channel delay and bass management built in, or better yet, an affordable digitally-linked DVD/receiver. I'm trying to make the best of what I've got. Making the speakers equidistant worked well as a channel delay solution. The biggest question I now have is about DVD-A bass management. If I set the 45A subwoofer setting to off, low bass and/or LFE (sub 150Hz) appear to be directed to the front speakers (which is fine for the IL60s which are good down to 28Hz). This yields good sound but I'm still not sure what's going on with the other channels. I would like to know if the 45A can also redirect low bass from the small speakers to the large ones (as it does for SACD -- crossover is 100Hz). The manual doesn't say it won't. I don't have the ear/equipment to figure it out. Since the IL36c and IL10s handle down to 55Hz and not too much deep bass is being sent their way on most multi-channel recordings, I can live with occasional lost low bass in those channels, but I'm still curious as to what is actually going on. I plan on emailing Pioneer on this but wondered if anyone knew for sure. BTW, it would make life a little easier if all DVD-Audio and SACD discs came with a "lowest recorded frequency" number for each channel so buyers could adjust systems accordingly! Even simply an indication of whether LFE is engaged would be good.
