Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Are you just using 2.1 channels? Spacial mode and 3D/2D remap only works if you have a full 5.1 or more speaker setup. In 2.1 channel mode I have spacial mode off and room eq flat as well and its sounds great. No hum.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Thanks, Tony. "Flat" with no Spatial is better, just playing with the other settings. It sounds like surround users are getting reduced bass with the 2D-3D mapping, just wanted to check it out.

Reran calibration, until the subs were 3 dB hotter than the mains. Cranked the gain another 3 dB or so on the sub amp, it does sound much better. No hum even at +5 dB on the AVR, which is much louder than I normally listen.

I'll give it some time to grow on me.

Surround users are not getting reduced bass. The user that had the problem was not getting a good sub reading during measurements. He corrected it and now is very happy. He posted in the other forum. The key is making sure the unit is making proper calculations. It seem you are having the same problem with gain on the sub amp being too low.

Trinnov spatial correction or remapping is of no real use for those that just have a 2.0 or 2.1 setup.

For those that have a 5.1 or 7.1 setup and listen in 2.1 with spatial correction and remap, the system will use the other speakers to correct for speaker placement angles. You will hear some information coming from the other channels. It provides a very spacious and open sound.

Tess, with only 2 speakers, IMO, you are not benefitting from Trinnov's power.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Running 2.1 for now, the plan is to eventually go to 4.1. If I cannot get satisfactory sound for 2.1, I might not bother.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

I have a question about the video scaling on this receiver. If I have it set to upconvert everything to 1080p, such as the cable box but I also have a 1080p source (bluray player) is it doing anything with that signal?

I really wish you could set the scaling per input.

If its already 1080p it will leave it untouched.

Ahh! There is another potential issue....on the other forum, someone had a problem with a 4.1 configuration and could not get it to work properly. You should research that.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Update on my progress. I posted this on the other forum's Trinnov thread as well:

"Success! I finally had to keep the subwoofer level just barely high enough that it would register on the Trinnov mic. This brought the sub level on par with the rest of the speakers. My room must be reinforcing some of the bass harmonics. Once the computation was done, I turned on Flat+3D and raised the sub level dial about 6db. Now I am getting the most mesmerizing presentation I have ever heard. I watched the clips from the Disney WOW blu-ray, and I am still speechless. For the first time I've felt like I am being physically immersed into whatever movie I am watching. All credit to Trinnov and the solid pre-amp/amp on this receiver. Thanks to all for the help."

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Thats great that you got it to work so well. How low did you end up running the level on the sub during Trinnov?
