    System Setup and Connection
    I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong place or if it's a repeat. I did some searching and did not find what I was looking for. I am using a Pioneer sc-lx801 in a 5.1 configuration. I start with full auto mcacc. It sets up my speakers as large. I change them to small with xover at...

  5. First listen with MCACC

    Audio Processing
    I have been using a Pioneer VSX-521-K receiver for about 2.5 yrs now. I did not bother to run the MCACC, because my surround speakers (floor standing Polk R50) were placed right beside my Tsi 400 mains. This was due to an odd shaped room, therefore I did not expect much surround effects. So I...

  12. MCACC - Specs

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I got the following information from Pioneer. What is disappointing to me, is that the 9 band equalizer is graphic, not parametric. When I did these adjustments manually, a graphic equalizer was useful, but when I could look at the frequency response on an oscilloscope, there were some sharp...
