Yes. I did the bitstream setting and my receiver displays only Dolby Digital but not DTS-HD.  Wonder what's wrong.
My bluray disc has diff audio setting:
1)When i choose Dolby Digital the display will show Dolby Digital
2)When i choose DTS- HD Master audio the display changes to PCM

u use auto surround decoder?
try straight mode. solve a lot of kind issue

Hi guys, I have underutilized 15 years old Yamaha HTR-5230 bought by my dad back in 2001 with McLaren 5 channel speakers . Anyone know how to recabling this thing? It has been in storage room about 5 years already.

EDIT:

Ok, Now I know a little bit about Tag McLaren Audio. It's High-End HiFi Speaker around 1999-2003. Dayumm..

Got an A850 for a decent price as a secondary receiver for my secondary small bedroom setup, pairing it up with a SVS 5.1 Prime Satellites.

Did some half-assed YPAO without proper mic placement, only single point measurement instead of multi (didn't have time) and no bass traps put up yet. Pretty impressed with the result.

Hopefully have some time this week to tweak and optimize things more, but so far the A850 with the Prime Sats is pretty good combination.

congrats on new machine. a850 has atmos

I thought anything that is good for audio should be good for HT. However, not the other way round.

amp that tuned to slow trancient speed cannot fit ht action movie right.

i am new to receivers.
I am planning to get 1 unit of A850 at RM 3700. will use it to drive a pair of Dynaudio Focus 140. not sure if A850 has enough juice to drive this 4ohm 86dB speakers.
was considering A1050 if not for the price difference. after will use it mostly for stereo plus mid for movies, with future upgrade to satellites.
also considering V479 but reasearch shows A850 adventage uses better components rite and newer.
*
that would depend u run as large (no crossover to subwoofer) or small (filter out bass to subwoofer).
large setting may require u enable biamp mode to fully push without affect the tweeter performance

mistake. A850 is RM 3450.
how to biamp ? need 2 units of A850 ?
*
its a function to assign unused speaker terminal.
so that tweeter has own amp, big cone has own amp independantly.
u need to remove the jumper link from speaker side, run extra 2 cable.
im using this method

QUOTE(SSJBen @ Mar 16 2016, 09:32 PM)
Are you sure RM3450? That was last year's price, this year is already RM36xx.
Just use the presence speakers output + front out into the speakers. You can't run 2 A850s side by side into a pair of speakers.

thank you sifu for pointing out the actual step thumbsup.gif

it sounds more wide if front pair are match eq. i run pioneer mcacc symmetry mode to obtain the avg between left--right.

not good enough to beat audyssey multi seat calibration.

im trying to read some information about it few days ago from some of the website, below showing those i read:-
Power handling: An often misunderstood specification. Measured in watts, it is best represented by RMS (root means square.) This figure tells us how much power the speaker can comfortably handle for a sustained period of time. Also referred to as continuous, or nominal power.
Some speakers only list a peak power rating. This can be measured in many different ways. It’s essentially a rating for the mechanical limitations of the speaker, and often represents how much power a speaker can take before it produces audible distortion. Depending on the type of signal being played back, the speaker may reach its mechanical limits at well below its rated power - for example, bass-heavy movie soundtracks and extremely high frequencies will challenge a speakers mechanical ability. For this reason, power handling doesn’t necessarily translate as a speakers ability to produce sound as many would have you believe.
PMPO (peak music power output) is essentially the measure of the speaker operating at or near its absolute limits on the verge of serious damage. It is not a useful rating, and easy for manufacturers to inflate - so avoid it completely.
Often speakers will simply say "power handling" and a number measured in watts - this may mean peak or continuous. If you’re ever unsure, ask the manufacturer/sales person the question.
When power matching speakers to an amp, a good rule of thumb is to power them with a little more juice than they’re designed to handle - around 10% should do it. That way the amp doesn’t have to work as hard to drive the speakers to their full capacity, resulting in cleaner, more dynamic sound. Speakers are designed to handle fluctuations in power levels, so this extra bit of juice won’t cause any issues.
From this webiste:-http://www.gizmag.com/how-to-choose-the-right-speakers-for-your-amplifier-or-av-receiver/9737/
*

u can read about at class a, class ab, class d & etc if u like complex stuffs.
pmpo?? i dont even... nvm sleep.gif

av receiver has 1 big transformer shared among the components. the more channels you run, the sooner distortion limit will reach.
so dont believe in 100w x 7.2 channels unless it is very expensive one.

i never read watt spec behind speaker unit because i know any amp can push it. just low ohm to worry its possible make amp over heat.
driver size, port, sound signature are more important than watt value

high watt amplifier give u the volume flexibility and headroom to play speaker unit before distort happen.

Hi Sifu,
Just bought RX-V579, previously was using onkyo TX-SR Series (pair with Jamo s606), and using my PS3 to play bluray movies. I realize the AVR never show the DTS-HD indicator ? My ps3 had set to multi channel.... any idea ?

If want to force dtsma, just disable all 5.1 and 7.1 in manual setup, sound better than pcm process

I got the yamaha ns-sw300 sub for RM1300. It is loud but I don't feel the impact power from the sub.
I looked for sw300 review online. Not many out there. Specification is not technically clear.
I don't think it got 250w RMS output though. Way lower.
However it is better than my old sub from 5.1 pioneer home theater system, because the pioneer sub is passive sub
I believe 500 is a discontinued sub. 300 is the latest.
*
same though. have not tune it yet. do u switch the movie mode and music mode?

need some advice from sifu here regarding the RX-A3060. i m planning to use the AV amp for 7.1.4 (external power amp) with zone 2 and zone 3 pre out for in ceiling speaker around my house with musiccast.

Do you think such configuration is possible? i have asked several shops but they are not sure if this is possible.
*
7.1.4 already use up all available amp terminal + 1set pre out for external 2ch amp.

so u left 1 set pre out but im not sure u want same source or switch other source.

music cast is another thing, doesnt require multi zone.
