Over the years I've found alot of problems with receiver/processor test tones even among the same models. With my current processor for example an Arcam avp700 the test tones are too low, not enough signal to properly calibrate and the opposite of Randy's problem. Also running tones or sweeps using the player aligns both the player and reciever/processor thereby removing any inconsistencies with the player. All you need are some descent test tones. I like the Discwasher Calibration Disc best. It's accurate and has constant 5.1 tones making it a more practical audio tool than Avia or DVE. Besides its only $3.

Yep, the Denon is what I've always used to calibrate the tones, but it is causing grief, read above. \:\)

I've got the discwasher also. My question is where do I put the master volume before starting to calibrate the speakers. The receiver automatically locks to "0" on the dial when doing the pink noise tones.

I assume I reset all the levels to "0", then turn up the master dial to a point using the discwasher cd that is pretty loud, before adjusting the denon levels? Even with the discwaher cd, you still have to cycle the Denon by pushing a remote button in this order LF, C, RF, RS, RRS, LRS, LS, SW. And it times out if you don't keep it active, really sucks.

What about the sub Jakeman, do you use the discwhaser for that as well?

Time for a new processor. Yes I use it to set the subs as well.

I think its safe to say I will never guy a Denon. I am sure they are great receivers, however this is a problem that can potentially cause alot of grief.

I actually know a guy named Denon, and I don't think he would like you to either....

It might cause his test tones to be way out of whack.

As John noted it isn't just Denon that has the issue and easily bypassed with test tone cds.
