Hey All,

I finall hooked up my Rear speakers. I feel fronts (Alons) and a lot betetr then my center. For music DVD such as teh US Vertigo, I just changed center width from 3 to 5. What do you all use for center width?

I order a HDTV so I have not set the speakers distance yet. How much better once I use this seeting can I expect?

I've used a center width of 4 or 5 a pretty fair bit. Keep in mind, though, that center width only matters when using Pro Logic IIx Music and a two-channel source (stereo analog, PCM stereo, or Dolby 2.0).

Even with the TV still missing, I'd go ahead and set speaker distances and levels. It only takes a few minutes and the benefits can be worth it.

You started this thread by stating you're an audiophile, yet are looking for pseudo-surround instead of plain stereo for music? I would have expected you to go stereo bypass into floorstanders or, if you had small speakers and sub, to use 7.1 bypass with only the analog crossover...

HI Chas.

I just hooked up my HDTV today with service. Changed the setting in the HDTV box to use Dobly Digital Out with the SPDIF. I have my Illuminati D60 hooked up and Wow!

The 1070 is a Great unit, I am having so much fun with it!

Hi Chas,

Yes, I received the denon 3930CI last week. They had sent me a refurbished unit that did not work so I called and complained. I have my original back with a full year warranty.

I was listening last night to SRV, Couldn't stand the Weather remastered, it was awesome.

The Mets game in Surround sound , Donly digtal was intense when the crowd was cheering.

Glad Denon took care of you finally. Are you still listening to CD's in two channel through the multichannel input using the crossover switch?

Hi chas,

I may hook the mult channel later. Have not have the chance yet. I love listening to HD baseball games and Dolby Digital through the 1070.

Was your 1070 'new' or 'B stock'?
Do you have the dreaded 'no audio' problem?

I was 'really' considering the 1070 or 970 until I started reading about this no audio thing. The price drop on the 990 muddies the water too. I'm going to replace my aging Sony DPL receiver and get a large screen HDTV by summer's end. I managed to get three Niles Audio SI-245 amps (2 ch, 45W/ch 8ohm RMS) and an SI-275 (2ch 75w/ch 8ohm RMS) 'out of the garbage' (I work for Niles) so the pre-pro route is tempting. (I DO have to repair these units. Mostly find replacement heat sinks, since they were removed for prototyping work. I even bought a cheap band saw to cut down raw heatsink stock to make replacements. I have two more to fix.).

I wish someone at Outlaw would chime into the Saloon and give us an honest update on the 1070/970 dropout problem/fix. Right now I'm keeping the 970/1070 on the back-burner on my short list. I would jump on a used 950 or 990 at the right price (and if a B stock 990 shows up I'll probably have a nervous fit). Otherwise a high end Onkyo (700-800 series) is possible.
