Hey Ken,
As I follow this thread, I keep thinking that you may have inadvertently engaged one of those cheesy-sounding "Hall" modes. Virtually all receivers have them, even your old HK. When I use my old HK, I sometimes push the wrong button and the hall effect pops up. . .

Also, in using Audyssey for setup, ignore any "out-of-phase" alerts for the surrounds. Audyssey can't deal with bipolar/dipolar surround speakers like the QS8s.

That's what I was thinking, too, Alan, but those effects are all in their own surround modes, independent of DPL2, which is where I've been sticking, at least for now. Well, more experimentation is called for, but my in-laws are in town.

Makes them sound great. I was reading some other information about it and it seems to me that it was designed more for movies anyway. The marketing doesn't say that, but I too get odd, exaggerated reverb when listening to music with it turned on. Thus the "messed up". Alan describes it pretty much spot on that it sounds like a "hall" or "cave" mode. Even when not selected. I will have to play around with it some more tonight. Maybe it is an Onkyo thing. I've got a new Onkyo 709...

Again, open invite to come and hear what I am hearing.

the only times when i thought there was exaggerated reverb is when i tried music with "multi channel stereo" or when standing near one of the surround speakers; so i don't understand what may cause this problem.

if someone would like to hear exaggerated reverb, just come and pick up (for free) my former processor which had "Dolby Surround" and "Hall". it's a Yamaha SR50.
after using it for more than 20 years, i never succeeded in setting it in a way that was remotely satisfactory. it was barely better than my previous setup, which was the "Hafler surround":

There's gotta be an easier way to cover your ears from that reverberant sound.

I just noticed the pink socks. Now I can't stop giggling.
