    I'm considering one of these two units but from what I can tell neither of these units has any type of Bass/Treble adjustment. I downloaded the manual and it is not even mentioned. An ES product and no basic sound contour controls? I'm also a little disappointed by the Bass Management, Small/Large that's it. I've owned 1 Sony ES a STR DA777 and that sucker had more flexibility than you could almost use. So whats up with these? I think I just talked myself out of them.

    Likely the controls are the same as my last 2 Marantz receivers were - controls are digitial and adjusted in a setup menu somewhere. I have setup a DA3ES, and I know the controls are only available in the menu system.

    The AVDs are not combo units, so I'm sure they had to make some compromises to package everything.

    Then again, I also never adjust my tone controls so...
