    A couple months back I tried a Denon AVR-3805. If I remember correctly, it integrated the sub for 2 channel CD playback even when the fronts were set as large. Is this correct? Does the 2805 work in a similar fashion?

    Denon's have been able to do this for a generation or two. The sub can be ran or it can be turned off. Your choice...

    Yeah, I'm currently running a 3803 (as a pre/pro) and it can do it for Stereo or Direct mode. I know the 2803 could do it too. But as I think about it, I think my 3802 (I still have in the closet) could only do it for Direct mode. So it must be just the generation before the xx05 series...

    It's a very nice feature that you don't see in every line of receivers. Definitely adds to the musicality of the unit.

    I have the 3805, if I press "direct", the sub out is off. I should read the manual in case I missed something.

    Check the lower half of page 72 on how to adjust each channel. You should be able to adjust the sub in both Direct and Stereo.

    Let us know what you find out... [​IMG]
