Re: Manual SUB EQ and Dolby volume

What i mean by the audyssey advanced feature is, that i have all the power in the world to make excellent EQ.. I just can't acces it, and that is quite annoying :/

A MiniDSP looks like alot of fun though.. many different possibilities?

Re: Manual SUB EQ and Dolby volume

Even though i can't really afford it, i bought the UMIK-1 and a miniDSP.. This thing is too awesome.. Ruler flat subwoofer response!

But i already want to play with this DSP alot more.. Is it possible to EQ the front speakers with mini DSP, with out an external AMP?

I have a Denon 4311..

I wish this unit has the same feature, as my dads old harman kardon.. The connection between til processing stage and the amp was physically connectet with two bridged phono connecters on the back..

"Right out - Right in"
"Left out - Left in"

And from the factory, it came with a plug between these two..

This would be TOO perfect, to the miniDSP

If I am not mistaken, your Denon has preamp outputs and external in for the front left and front right, exactly what you were looking for. There is no external jumper because the connection is automatically made internally unless you connect to the input connectors. Doing all of the EQ plus crossover in the miniDSP, however, would bypass your AVR's LFE management, not sure how well that works for you.

Thought you might like the mini DSP, though, pretty ideal for manual EQ, if it fits your configuration.

Does that work?
Pre-out -> miniDSP -> ext in?

That would be awesome to play with..

It's AWESOME for subwoofer correction

looks like it should work, if I understand correctly from the online manual.

Good luck. It looks like you are finding, as others have, that a little bit of manual tweaking leaves you with the character of your speakers but without the annoying extremes, where a lot of auto-EQ just squashes the life out of the sound.

Happy tweaking!

Re: Manual SUB EQ and Dolby volume

MiniDSP makes so many nice things! But i think i will stay with my current configuration..
I finally, after 2 years, found the sound i want.. It's not perfect, but i can enjoy it all day long, if I want..

I manually corrected my centers and rears, to sound like my fronts, and with the subwoofer EQ'ed to flat, my movie experience is just fantastic.. My rears was way too loud, with audyssey dynamic EQ.. Dolby volume does a way better job, with everything movie related.. I'm SO happy!

THANKS GUYS!
