I have a Pioneer VSX-1014TX receiver with a Pioneer DV-45A player. I have hooked up all the RCA cables into the multi-channel inputs (correctly I assure you) and when I listen to a DVD-Audio disc like REM's "Out Of Time" the sound is pretty stunning....EXCEPT.....there's hardly any bass. I thought there might be a flaw with the player so I took it to the dealer and we hooked it up to a Paradigm speaker system. It sounded fine there and I listened to the subwoofer by itself. When I get it back home again the bass sucks ass. I put in NIN's Downward Spiral DVD-A and the bass sucks. I change the player to read it as a DVD-Video and using the coaxial cable and the bass shakes the house. What is wrong? Just to see what would happen I took the subwoofer cable out of the receiver and plugged it directly into the subwoofer out from the back of the DV-45A. It sounded almost identical as it did from the receiver. I have to turn the subwoofer right up to full and set the channel at +10dB to get it to sound like a DVD-Video does with the sub at 1/2 volume and +/- 0dB on the subwoofer channel. Not that it matters but I'm using JBL 5.1 speakers. The MCACC has crapped out too. I think the subwoofer processing on the multi-channel is dead. What do you think? I'd like to call Pioneer and then see if they will arrange a 1015 replacement through Best Buy rather than have the same issue happen 3 times before I get a replacement. Any thoughts?
