Majik, in the 3808 there is a 2 channel settings mode that needs to be set up, I beleive it is in the options section. Once you find it you have to set up the system for sub and the crossovers for the mains as well. I think this might be causing your lack of bass when listening to music.

Majik, try what jakewash just said. There is another place in the setting menu to set the stereo mode as well.

House the helicopter effect is neither nor.. the drivers extend continuously in rapid succession - as if a the sound of a helicopter was being sent to the drivers... sorry, it's the only example I can come up with. and it happens at medium to high volume levels when there is a big boom (like when a Transformer lands after jumping in the air)...

The humming/vibration happens when there is a rumble... like when the cars are driving by in Tallegeda Nights...

only two things can stop it once either starts:
1- I cut power to the sub
2- I turn the crossover dial on the sub down until it stops.

Do you have sub cable connected to the line level INPUT (Line In) on the EP800? Do you have the cable connected to the subwoofer output jack on the Denon? Make sure to read the Denon manual to double check.

For the music CD you have to go to:

Manual Setup -> Audio Setup -> 2ch Direct/Stereo -> Custom.

The Basic setting will take the settings from your auto setup (or by default), which was probably Large for the M80s.


Edit: This is assuming that it is a Denon setting problem and not the PS3.

If you have a spare cable I would swap out the one you are using now to rule out a faulty RCA cable and I would also try a cheater plug on the power cord of the EP800 to see if that solves any of the humming/drone/helicopter sounds. Other than that I dunno what else. Time to call Axiom if you have not already.

I'd get rid of the PS3 and IPod. \:\) Maybe call Axiom.

The PS3 is an awesome device for Blu-ray, dvd, c.d playback and even SACD. The iPod on the other hand I would use for portable use only driving low impedance headphones (not good for much else).

I don't have any sort of problems using my iPod as a source. But I don't have an EP800, either.

I hate to say it, but I suspect there's still something wrong with the 800.
