Has anybody used the Denon to stream audio (like FLAC files, especially) from a server? Is the GUI satisfying in that regard?

Tom,

I was just messing with that a couple days ago. It seams to work fairly well. It sees any PC on the network and after I gave the Denon access, I was able to use the Denon to navigate through my music files and play what I want. It is pretty slow, but not too painfully so.... I only use Media player, so I can't comment on any of the other formats.

Cool, Mike. Does it let you compile (or access) playlists?

However,I feel like I am missing some bass during action movies and games. I think I need to experiment with both the crossover and the sub placement. I was hoping for my couch to rumble during explosions, and right now it is not.

I need to find a good HD-DVD or DVD to test the LFE...


Keep in mind that you HD-DVD/Bluray may be at fault. My Marantz SR8001 cannot decode any HD audio. So I let XA2 and BDP1400 do the decoding (minus master audio) and shoot it out over PCM. Until recently, a but in XA2 *killed* LFE/BASS. Transformers was very weak. I fixed the XA2's config and the bass came back.

So keep in mind that all may be well with your setup, but the players may not be keeping up.

Hansang, What did you do to the XA2 to get the bass back?

I have a toshiba A2 and I am using bitsream for the audio I think.

Yeah, Hansang, I'm curious, too? I have an XA2 and have been underwhelmed by the "Transformers" HD DVD. I've done the most recent upgrade and have also taken a look at the AVS thread.

Yes, Answer!! NOW!!
Sorry, just kidding, but I am curious.

I wish one of you sub experts would come over and tweak my system. I have my other speakers exactly where I want them but I am never satisfied with the sub. It rocks but I'm always tinkering.

I know its all mental so I don't need it to really sound better, I just have to trick my brain into thinking that it has been set up by an expert so it is CORRECT.

All the free lobster you can eat if you come in the spring or early summer!!! heh heh.

Unfortunately, it won't help you since you are using HDMI/bitstream. My SR8001 can't decode HD Audio so I use analog outs. I used to use HDMI/PCM, but bass/LFE was really lacking. I then switched out to analog output on the XA2 and analog inputs (AUX2) on my SR8001. Then did what it said in this first post:
