    I'm curious to know how many of you SACD fans are using...

    a) Outlaw ICBM

    b) Sub wired as a speaker

    c) Nothing

    ...in order to hear LFE when listening to an SACD.

    I have only 2-channel SACD. I connect my sub (SVS 20-39PC) via speaker level inputs. My mains are B&W N805s.

    I'm very pleased with this arrangement.

    For multi-channel SACD, I am just using bass management on the 'C555ES. I am not doing anything to control the crossover frequency.

    I use DVD-A, but it faces the same problem as SACD. To manage bass I'm using the Outlaw ICBM. Works like a champ.

    I use the speaker level inputs for 2 channel base management from the 555ES SACD with a Def Tech 15TL sub.

    I just run my SV sub hot playing multi channel tracks from my 555ES.

    Brain fart question here. I have a 555ES, but I don't use multichannel at all (yet). If I play 2 Channel SACD's out of the Analog outs, does my receiver treat this as if it was the same as redbook and do an internal crossover of the signal or no? I'll worry about 5.1 when I get my new processor and that will have it's own internal bass management for the 5.1 analog inputs so I won't have to worry about it. This is simply a "for the time being" type question.
