    Running 5.1.2 . Klipsch all around (rf3's and rc3 rs3.. Klipsch ceiling heights) Denon 3500x. My sub sounds good most of the time. Music bass sounds tight and clean. For movies most of the time bass is good. But at times(hacksaw ridge gunship shooting scene for example). I get some rattling when...

    Audyssey mt32.. and speaker setting(largevssmall)

    I broke out my old radio shack sound meter. And went in the manual levels. The fronts and center seemed fine. The surrounds were off but a few db. And the height speakers. Seemed to level out fine on the meter. But I turned them up. Because alot of the time I was standing on the couch to hear if...

    Audyssey mt32.. and speaker setting(largevssmall)

    Yeah that kinda what I was thinking. Everything else was small except the mains and ceiling Atmos speakers. If I recall it had 80hz set as cross over for the speakers set to small.. with the mains set as small. I should get bass out of the sub for stereo content(music) or do I need to choose...

    Deion 3500x and which dolby format to choose

    5.1.2....so from further reading it sounds like dolby surround is the best choice then to utilize the height speakers? if its not a true atoms signal..like netflix or cable tv.

    Samsung 65 4k tv and uhd setting..

    i ended up running everything thru hdmi 1 (non- arc) and running optical to receiver. Since the only thing i needed sound out from the tv was netflix/amazon. i leave HDR on hdmi 1 and it doesn't seem to mess with the picture at all for non HDR content

    Deion 3500x and which dolby format to choose

    So obviously dolby atoms is the first choice. But say if I'm watching regular tv or netflix which gives a 5.1 signal. Which is the best choice dolby digital or dolby digital plus. The manual isn't clear which is the better choice.. see attached pic from manual

    Dolby Atmos upgrading? From older Denon

    There is a lally column support post right there to the left of the couch. So the right surround is as far as it could go. So the left one to me just kinda had to be where I put it for my OCD .lol.. but yes I know what you are saying.. it's a basement hard to work with..

    denon 3500x hdmi monitor 2 out question

    So i have have everything running thru the avr using the arc out channel from avr the arc in channel on the tv. The one problem is the arc in channel of the tv doesn't support uhd deep color. This is primarly only a issue for my 4k samsung bluray. The hdmi 1 port on tv does support uhd, could i...

    Dipole Klipsch rs-3ll

    I upgraded my older Denon to a 3500x. Rf311 for fronts rc3ll center and Klipsch 2500 ceiling speakers and svs sub. I'm kinda stuck with my rear surrounds being rs-3ll. I have been reading that dipoles arent ideal for rear surrounds anymore. Will that sound horrible? Any thoughts?

    Dolby Atmos upgrading? From older Denon

    3.1 pounds. The only difference is 105 vs 95 watts a channel. The 3500 does multi room HDMI output( I don't need it) and playback from digital audio inputs.. 3500 has it.. 2500 doesn't.. not real sure what that means.. I see these ceiling speakers at a steal. But I would have to get the cheaper...

    Dolby Atmos upgrading? From older Denon

    So I was looking at the Denon avr x3500h(2018) it's 600. The 2500 is 400(both are close to half off being last year's model) the only real difference is 3500 is 105 watts per channel the 2500 is 95 watts. My old Denon was at 90 watts and I never came close to Max volume. I could go with the 2500...

    Dolby Atmos upgrading? From older Denon

    Yeah I was disappointed..lol..anything you can suggest that's reasonable. Like under 150 for a pair? It's Xmas time and most of spare funds is for the kids stuff.

    The room is in the basement and very little light comes in thru it, and besides 90percent of the time it's night time when we use the room and it is a pitch black room with out any lights on

    Dolby Atmos upgrading? From older Denon

    I don't really remember why I put the surrounds so close. I'm thinking it was because I was trying to keep them equal to the front speakers. Which I couldn't go farther.. since it's a basement that's finished the room with the tv isn't very deep. So the surrounds are as far back as they can go...

    Dolby Atmos upgrading? From older Denon

    I think those are vintage k horns? Nice.. anyway.. so ditch the rest center completely and lower the rear surrounds. I thought at one time that was the desired height? Like 15 yrs ago?

    Dolby Atmos upgrading? From older Denon

    With the Onkyo I could use the rear center also I believe, and the ceiling speakers..8.1.2..i believe. I'm not real sharp with Atmos. In your opinion would the 7.1.2 using the Denon and eliminate the center rear be abetter choice?

    Dolby Atmos upgrading? From older Denon

    Lol.. the plant was my wife and it was a battle I gave up.. sometimes you have to pick and choose. Not really sure of the quality of the speakers in the ceiling and the right one is a bit off for placement. But maybe move it over down the road. My budget is about 600.. the Denon is a 2018 model...
