Well I received my used 1070 from UPS today and got it set-up this evening. Wow.

I remembered the 1070 as being a great sounding receiver, but second impressions reinforce the fact that this thing is in a different league than the usual receivers found in the B&M stores.

I never have been satisfied listening to two channel music without a sub using other receivers (and I've had 7 of them)...even in so-called pure direct modes. The Outlaw in Bypass hooked up to a Denon CD player sounds full-bodied, rich and detailed. Voices and instruments separate nicely and bass is strong enough to satisfy without a sub.

So far I'm extremely happy to have a 1070 back in the rack.

Hey Chas,

Glad to read you are back up and running. Try hooking your Denon DVD player via analog interconnects into the Multi hcannel DVD input. Once you do that, slect DVD on the rEmote control then select the 7.1 button on the remote control. Be sure to move teh toggle switch for bass management all the way up before you do this.

Trust me, this is the best method!

Actually I have a Denon CD player...not a multichannel-out DVD player, so I don't think I can use that technique as I have no sub-out to connect to the multichannel in.

Lizard king's technique would still work with a standard CD player - just connect the left/right outputs to the left/right channels of the DVD input and set the switch on the back to "HPF/LPF". The 1070 will generate a signal for the sub and the signal path will be purely analog from end to end.

The crossover used when the switch is set to HPF/LPF is at 80Hz. I'd generally recommend making sure that the bass management in the player is disabled, but a CD player shouldn't have that issue. What you may want to do is try some test tones (my Devious Tiny Disc would suffice) to make sure you are providing a signal with content below 80Hz - a lot of music won't dip that low.

I'll keep playing with it. I thought some of the bass notes got low enough but maybe not. There's nothing else to set up other than the switch to HPF/LPF, analogs in on the 7.1 inputs unit switched to DVD and 7.1 Bypass engaged?

I'll break out the test tones when I get a chance. Thanks Gonk.

Hooked up to the analog cd inputs I noticed the sub was playing even though the speakers were all set to large and I was in bypass. I discovered I had accidentally set the subwoofer in the menu to "LFE". Does this need to be set to LFE to get the sub active on the 7.1 inputs?
