Alrighty... So, here's the breakdown...I have a newer Samsung LCD HDTV, a newer Samsung Blu Ray, and a brand new pioneer 921 True HD receiver. The TV and Blu Ray are upper end and well equipped. A while back, my receiver's HDMI out unit blew so I was sent another brand new one. Anyway, I set up my system all over again and I have my Blu Ray's HDMI plugged into my Receiver and then from my Receiver's HDMI 'out', that goes to my TV. Picture and Sound are great. I have all Infinity Speakers...2 front towers and a center. NO sub and NO rear surrounds. Anyway, I manually input the speaker set up into my Pioneer. I set my 2 towers as 'large' and my center as 'small' because I have no sub. This tells my receiver to put the bass to my towers. Anyway...now I seem to have bass delay. What I mean is, let's just say a rocket flies into a building on a movie and the explosion goes off...the bass impact comes a second after it should making the visual effect quite annoying. Also, if during an action scene I pause the movie...I can hear a residual bass effect for a second after. I have all new 16 gauge wires (good quality stuff too) and the connections are perfect. Any ideas????
