    Hi to everybody,
    i'm new here. I must say that this is a really great site, congratulations.
    I'm writing from Switzerland and i hope that you'll forgive my bad english.
    I own my hometheatre system since 1999 but untill now i didnt care much about calibrations (mean that i kept it standard).
    I own a Sony KV32FX60B,Dvd Sony 725D,Ampli Sony STR-DB930 and speakers SA Ve 705 Sony's, and even if it looks a bit older and speakers are not as good as big names i'm pretty happy with it (next year if Santa will bring me some money i'll probably change everything...[​IMG] ).

    I'm reading the STR-db930 manual but i can't really understand ....
    Is there someone so kind to help me/show me/lear me something about calibration with this:


    FRONT BALANCE: from -8 to +8
    REAR BALANCE: from -8 to +8
    REAR LEVEL: from -10dB to +10dB
    CENTER LEVEL: from -10dB to +10dB
    SUB WOOF.LVL: from -10dB to +10dB
    LFE MIX LVL: muting,or from -20dB to 0 dB
    DYNAMIC RANGE COMP: OFF,from 0.1 to 0.9,STD or MAX


    FRONT BASS GAIN: from -10db to +10db
    FRONT BASS FREQUENCY: from 100Hz to 1.0 kHz
    FRONT MID GAIN: from -10dB to +10dB
    FRONT MID FREQUENCY: from 500Hz to 5kHz
    FRONT TREBLE GAIN: from -10dB to +10dB
    FRONT TREBLE FREQUENCY: from 1.0Khz to 10Khz
    CENTER BASS GAIN: from -10dB to +10dB
    CENTER BASS FREQUENCY: from 100Hz to 1.0 kHz
    CENTER MID GAIN: from -10dB to +10Db
    CENTER MID FREQUENCY: from 500 Hz to 5 kHz
    CENTER TREBLE GAIN: from -10dB to +10dB
    CENTER TREBLE FREQUENCY: from 1.0 Khz to 10 kHz
    REAR BASS GAIN[​IMG]rom -10db to +10dB
    REAR BASS FREQUENCY: from 100 Hz to 1.0 hKz
    REAR MID GAIN: from -10dB to + 10dB
    REAR MID FREQUENCY: from 500 Hz to 5.0 kHz
    REAR TREBLE GAIN: from -10dB to + 10Db
    REAR TREBLE FREQUENCY: from 1.0 kHz to10 kHz

    is there any possessor of same system that kindly can put his calibrations or is there anybody that can explain me the above numbers cause it's like chinese for me.

    thanks and ciao

    Welcome, Jvan!

    Since you're asking very specific questions about a specific Sony receiver I thought you'd get a better response in this section. Good luck, and enjoy your stay at HTF.
