    Can any owners of this receiver please verify for me once and for all whether or not there is a LFE crossover adjustment?

    I have a Sony STR-DA333ES that is almost identical to the STR-DA555ES. I think the main differences are the 120Watt/ch vs. 80Watt/ch and a different remote... In fact they share the same user manual.

    Anyway - the only crossover adjustment is setting speakers to small/large and sub on/off. Setting speakers to small will send bass below 120hz to the subwoofer or to other "large" speakers if you have them.

    There are no selectable crossoverpoints, if that's what you are looking for...

    Yes I use my SVS with my Sony STR-DA333ES...

    I let the Sony do Bass Management for DD/DTS through the optical input for DVD viewing (using a Panasonic RP-56).

    For CD/SACD/DVD-A I have an Outlaw ICBM between my Pioneer DV-45A and the 5.1 on the Sony since I was unhappy with the Pioneer's Bass Management and the Sony can't apply Bass Management to the 5.1 inputs.

    The SVS sounds great both ways - a little more localized when using the higher crossover of the Sony but that's about it.

    Yes, the localization of the sub is my only complaint although it's really not that bad. And this complaint is only about the receiver. I have NO complaints regarding the SVS, it is an unbelievable piece of equipment worth every penny spent getting it!!![​IMG]

    I own the V444ES. Press the set-up button. Turn the little knob until you get to LFE high cut. It can be ajusted from 40hz to 200hz, in 10 hz increments. I don't know how similar the V series and DA series are though.

    Thanks DelRay...
    However, the DA555ES as well as the DA333ES lacks that adjustment.

    My STR-VA555ES has seperate cross over settings for FRONT, CENTER, REAR, CENTER REAR, as well as LFE CUT. My front's cross over at 50hz, center at 60hz and rears at 70hz. The LFE CUT is left at the default of 120hz so I can hear the whole of the LFE. What this means is that the bass that the speakers cant handle is mixed with the LFE and sent to the sub woofer. It works perfectly, i've tested it with a signal generator. The US version of the VA555ES is the DA5ES.
