congrats chex-

well, first.. it helps if we know what kinda receiver you got? also, if you have a subwoofer?

a good general setting to start would be: WITH SUB- put all your settings to small, and the sub crossover at 80mhz. WITHOUT SUB-leave all your settings on large.

and then check your manual to do any additional tweaks from there.

but let us know what kind of receiver you got, that way, the people with those types of receivers can help you out a lot better.

good luck.

do you have a sub?

pretty much follow as i have said above.. i just set up my 701 this past weekend, so i went thru everything you are going thru. your gonna love it when you are done.

the 701 manual is very detailed and explains the set up process very well.. just make sure you have a connection going to the tv(component/svideo/rca) so you can see the on screen displays. follow in the manual step by step, and you should be rockin before no time.

i was a little nervous, i feel you anxiety.. just breath slow, open the manual and get after it..

oh, dont forget to put batteries in the remote. (i am not speaking from experience)

Actually, the lowercase m makes it microhertz, which is somehow even funnier.

good point.. hate for him to blow out the 60's as soon as he hits the power button.

crossover at 80Hz.

just kidding on the blowing out the speakers chex.. your 701 will default to 80 anyway due to the THX standard.

OK BREN- i think you have made fun of me enough for today!! save some for tomorrow

OK. you might be listening in the "pure direct" mode which is just your fronts, or "direct" which will just be your fronts and sub. try and push the buttons on the bottom of the remote that say "surr" and "dsp". see if you get sound from them then
