Good to know. I'll pick up an SP meter and do it the old fashioned way. Would you recommend not even striking it up with the audyssey settings I had before? (and just flat it out and start over?)


Running it as is (not running a new Audyssey calibration) MIGHT be OK but why take the chance? At this point I would just turn Audyssey off and use the old fashion SPL meter approach. Good to have one of those anyway. ;\)

What sort of cables are you using for interconnects? (and does it matter?) \:\)

I am using balanced cables (Blue Jeans Cables). The only advantage I can see with balanced is fewer ground loop (hum) issues. While I don't believe that cables should cost hundreds of dollars each, these are expensive components and going cheap on the interconnects isn't a good idea either.

I just saw your post on the A1400-8 over at the AV123 forum. Thanks for posting it over there. It's good to see friendly, respectful comments on products other than the home team's. \:\)

Yessir I do remember us talking about the 600 now, that's been well past a week ago and now that I'm over 50 anything much past, uh, oh I'd say a day or two gets very difficult trying to store and refresh for later use ... I can't even fathom how Jack manages. \:D

Pen and paper are necessities these days. Problem is, I can't remember what I wrote down or where I put the papers.

Thanks Jack, I posted that I was getting the A1400 all over the place and generated some interest. Then after the problems with the first two units I posted that ... so now I feel obliged to make sure that I cover all of those bases by posting about my satisfaction with this excellent amp.

If this question was directed at me, I have the Integra DCT 9.8. It replaced an Emotiva DMC1, that replaced a Parasound C2 (you get the idea ;\) ). No one could ever accuse me of being a brand fan.

Yes, it was directed at you!
Thanks for the response. Slowly looking into this. Very interested by the Athem D2... but if so, it will have to wait as I have started saving for the biggest HT improvement of all for me: a house (no neighbors!).

I understand completely. I just built out a dedicated HT space this past fall and it has given me the freedom to do as I see fit with all of this AV gear. No WAF issues .
