I don't expect a lot of feedback on this, but any input is appriciated. And yes, before you ask, I have read a lot on calibration, including this great thread: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/uub/Forum14/HTML/039226.html) What I did was place the Meter in the listening position, set the volume knob to 0db and proceeded to calibrate to 75db using VE (80-82db on the SUB). My end results are: L/R: -1 C: -2 LSL: +2 (speaker little farther away then its counterpart) RSR: -1 SUB : -8 Now, this really suprized me because before I had done this, I had all the speakers at 0, but my sub output was at +5! (+8 in DTS). I had no idea that i was listening to DVDs with the sub that loud. Of course I thought that I had done something wrong, so I calibrated again, but i got the same exact values. Just for clarification, my mains are set to LARGE, the center to small, and the Sub to L/R + LFE. Now my question is, does this sound right to you guys? Since this is my first time calibrating with VE, I'm not sure if I did this accuratly or what, or if there is something wrong with my speakers/dvd/receiver. I played a couple of passes from some favourites (Toy Story 2, Mummy, Titan AE). And even though the bass is quieter, in Toy Story it still sounded very good. Actualy it has never sounded better and the bass is still there (i usualy listen to movies at -20) Now, for DTS, what I thought of doing, was just to copy the same settings that I had for Dolby and test things there. I've always thought that DTS lacked bass compared to DD, and once again it showed itself. I had to boost the sub to +5 in DTS to get the same type of bass sound that I get in DD (I used the last chapter of mummy ue when the temple is crashing down to evaluate the bass levels in both DTS and DD). My receiver allows for -/+10 adjustments in all modes. So my second question is, why is my DTS sound always lacking in bass? Even before I calibrated, I had to boost the sub level to get some unf. And in turn, how do you guys calibrate your DTS settings? Is there a DVD with DTS tones that can be used to calibrate DTS sound? Should I buy a new receiver? (although I am pleased with the AVR 110, lots of value for the money there. I'm thinking of upgrading it next year, maybe sooner.) I'm going to live with these settings for a few days and play a few more titles in a "normal" listening week and see if I get used to these settings. I tend to have a ear for bass, but that value did shock me. Thanks for any input and my apolagies for the long post.
