I stick my finger in the sub and my toe in the receiver. So there.

That's how I perform ECT!

I have found that the best CD for that is "Thunder and Lightning"

And David, the second one has a "fancy connector". As I said in my previous reply, the RG59 cable is fine.

Yup they will both work just fine. Personally I would go with the RG6 but it really doesnt matter. The big difference between the two can be seen when being used for CATV. You definetly dont want to use RG59 for that purpose these days as it will degrade signal quality.

I ran audessey with my m80'sd and wasn't terribly happy with the results. I changed the setting on my sub and re-ran it.... I had adjusted some of the channels after the audessey set up (fine tuned things with my SPl meter) and for some reason audessey just kept reverting to the old settings.

Acouple of weeks ago I did a hard reset and manually adjusted everything without ever running audessey. So far I like things much better without it...


terzaghi, what did you do to do a hard reset on your avr? My Axioms should arrive within the next few hours and if there is a chance that the avr may revert back to the "old" settings I may want to do a hard reset also.

from the denon manual:

microprocessor reset (master power off, hold down both the DSP and the Standard button, master power on, wait for three flashes, release buttons)

standard reset (master power off, hold down both the 'up arrow' button and the 'down arrow' button, master power on, wait for the flashing, release buttons).

I did a standard reset, it resets all of your channel levels, any audessey results, video settings/ input names and assignments, ect.- basically puts it back to its factory setting (without downgrading any firmware updates that you may have installed.)



not sure if that is really necessary if you plan on running audessey. I would do a reset first if for some reason you decide to do everything manually after you have already ran audessey.

Thanks terzaghi for the fast response. I'm standing with my nose against the window wondering "where oh where is that FEDEX truck"
