First off, this receiver is a tweakers delight. You can make it sound anyway you want!!! Every receiver should be this flexible and adjustable. Anyway, I need help w/ the setup of my Sony DA5ES receiver. To begin with, I'll give you my room specs, speakers (along w/ distance from the listening position), and the current receiver setup that I did last night. In order to "help you help me", the areas marked *** are the settings that I was unsure about. They may be wrong, but I'd appreciate your input. First, my speakers and their positions: Fronts: Paradigm Monitor 7's - 12ft from listening position. Center: Paradigm CC-350 - 12ft from listening position. Rears: Polk LS/fx Bipole/Diploe - 10.5ft from listening position and 7ft high. Subwoofer: Sony SAW-M40 Room size: 20ft long (front to back), 16.5ft wide, and a sloping ceiling 12ft to 8ft (front to back) Current receiver settings: F/C/S is set to: [SMALL] Subwoofer: [YES] F/C/S Distance from listening position: Actual is 12ft, set at 8ft Surround Distance from listening position: Actual is 10.5 ft, set at 6ft Subwoofer distance: Actual is 13ft, set at 8ft Subwoofer Phase: Normal Surround Position: Side Surround Height: High (Actual 7ft) ***Front Crossover Freq: 60Hz ***Center Crossover Freq: 80Hz ***Surround Crossover Freq: 80Hz ***LFE High Cut: Standard 1) Does this all appear correct, taking my room into account?....Did I set the crossover frequencies correctly?....To what do I adjust the crossover on the sub after done w/ the receiver settings? 2) What do you recommend as far as setting the equalizer for each channel? I favor a leaning towards the upper frequencies so how would I adjust the EQ accordingly? Sorry for all the ???'s. I know I should know most of this. Makes me wonder how I setup my previous Sony 777ES receiver. Anyway, these are the only questions I could think of for now. I'd appreciate your help. Thanks.
