Hi,
I've upgraded from a Yami V2600 to V2700. As I have not had much time to play with it yet I've just used the inbuit YPAO feature to "auto setup" all the speaker settings (I can report that this does a much better job with integrating the Sub than the V2600).

I'm going to check and adjust the vol levels with my SPL metre but I was interested in any feedback on if I should keep the YPAO modified EQ setting or revert to an unadjusted "flat" setting. I know I could try both and compare but I don't have the time at the moment.

Thanks
Nathan

Hey Nathan, hope your doing fine down in the back country. I would say you'll have to experiment with different types of music/movies and see what you think. Most people that have AVR's with the built in setup and eq options have found the the setup portion that addresses dB levels and distance (delay) is pretty accurate. With my Denon 2805 the EQ portion gave my m60's to much midrange, so I leave that turned off. I also followed up with my SPL meter to verify the dB levels and distance, and it was pretty close...

Nathan, when you reported about the 2600, you were using the "Natural" room equalization setting. If that was pleasing it would seem that doing the same with the 2700 would be as well. One of the advances in the 2700 over the 2600 is the ability to equalize the sub and, especially since you already note better sub integration, taking advantage of it would appear to be advisable.
