Hi All,

I just wanted to let you know that I received the M60ti 500 7.1 system, and all I can say is WOW … these speakers sound good flat I can’t wait to hear what it sounds like when I calibrate the receiver.

Question,

What is the better way to setup the receiver Auto (MIC) or Manual? Or just set to the default settings.

Thanks,

John

ps, does anyone know how to reset to factory defaults for the Yamaha RX V2600?

On my Denon I found the Auto Setup which sets the speaker levels, delay, and polarity check did a pretty good job. I did make some small adjustments once I got my SPL meter.

My Denon also has an option for Room EQ, which is a built in equilizer that takes the Auto Setup results and adjusts 8 frequencies to your room. I have found it made my 60's sound worse, so I don't use the EQ part.

I've also found that I've needed to bump up my Sub and Center levels a bit from the mic AND spl calibrations. To start follow the pamphlet for your 500 on starting volume/crossover/phase/etc... Turn the sub on bypass as most likely you will control your crossover from the receiver. Also, put the sub volume on about the 6-7 o'clock position to start. I have a large room and I think I have mine on about 7-8 o'clock and the receiver on -2dB's for the sub.
