It's a 525, the same one as kcarlile's. Getting kind of old but I love the Logic7 decoding for a lot of classical recordings. I don't use the main power amps in the receiver, although they will drive the M80s without problems. The pre-outs go to an old class A/B power amp with 200 watts into 8 ohms, more into 4 ohms. Much of the time, I run the M80s and M22s on an A/B switcher, both with the EP500.

Alan I'm using a 635 in almost the exact setup you are using and am very happy with it ... I too really like the Logic7 decoding. I've always thought the H/K made a great processor.

I've just started using the Logic 7, after realizing that I was dissatisfied with Neo6 on the 80s.

Alan, I have had precisely the same experience with an older Sony megachanger (CDP-CX400, I think). Very frustrating.

Hi,

Sometimes it's amazing the differences--depending on the source recording--between DPLII, dts Neo6 and Logic 7. I switch around between the three to see which one delivers the most believable soundfield. Sometimes Logic7 throws too much information into the surrounds or I have to reduce the surround level. Other times, it seems to add a third dimension with lots of depth and the speakers mostly disappear.

The H/Ks have had very sophisticated bass management on the multichannel inputs for years, which is a nice feature for SACD/DVD-Audio playback, so you don't have to rely on the sometimes primitive bass management of the built-in SACD/DVD-Audio decoders in the DVD player.

After I wrote my earlier response, I remembered that during the EP500 development, I was changing out individual circuit boards with the wiring harnesses. Tom Cumberland would FedEx me a board, I'd install it and check out the performance. I still have a leftover EP500 board sitting on a bookcase, so my EP500 is some kind of Frankenstein hybrid of boards and amp modules of different vintages.

Regards,

Alan
