Just got this receiver the other day. It replaced a Pioneer VSX-D608 which I had bought back in '99. (which was my very first receiver and my foray into HT) Couple things I've notcied with the Yamaha... in the menus there is an LFE setting for both the speaker and headphones. I just left this at '0'. (for the speaker, i don't use headphones) Then there is also a subwoofer setting along with the rear and center channel settings. So basically there is 2 sub settings? I did a quick spin of Episode 1 and set the sub setting to -5.0. I also noticed you can't individually set the Mains? With my Pioneer you could individually set speaker settings for both normal stereo and when watching in DPL/DD/DTS. I noticed when setting the sub to -5.0 that when watching tv the sub setting stayed there. I watch tv with my sub on, but I assume this setting will be like this for when I listen to a cd with my jukebox? So I basically have to adjust my sub every time I switch between dvd/tv/cd? Also, does the bass extension, bass and treble contorls (knobs on front) have an effect when watching tv in stereo and watching a dvd in DD/DTS?
