my mistake again sorry
The owls are not what they seem...
I had DTS HI RES show on my avr last night,it was an HD master audio blue-ray......any idea why?
Dont know why its so difficult to post a new thread to what it use to be with me not being computer litterate but here goes again i just bought a arcam avr600 coming from a denon avca1d (oldie but still a goody ) to be honest havent noticed a signifficant difference from dts master audio compared to dts core from my denon or am i missing something by the way i paid £1500 for the arcam any advice would be most appreciated Regards Garry
First question obviously - is it all connected up and configured correctly? Are you getting an indication on the Arcam that DTS HD Master Audio is being decoded?
...and what speakers have you got?

This is a continuation from this thread, where I was trying to help, so I'm sure all other inputs will be greatly received:http://www.whathifi.com/forum/av-receivers/arcam-avr600-ex-dem-£1500

Garrynic,on my avr i have to turn the dsp off to get master audio,i do this by pressing the straight feed,maybe your avr is in dsp mode?
I tried to setup on auto set up but it keeps telling me there is an error on eq room correction so i set up manually using a spl meter with crossover at 80 and at 75decibals i have mission 753 freedom fronts 75center m&k k4 rears and a bk electronics monolith sub tomorrow is the last day i can return amp for a full refund if i want so must decide by then thanks
The display is showing dts master audio CnoEvil all your advice is much appreciated thanks
My screen reflects the format that it's decoding. The standard stuff on the AVR600 should sound dramatically better than the your old Denon, and the Hi-Res stuff should make it sound broken.
IMO If this isn't the case, it needs properly set up which is difficult to do remotely. Please bare in mind that technically, I'm not a mile ahead of you......I still think you need to make contact with somebody who can help you set it up correctly. A well set up cheaper amp can sound better than a badly set up expensive one.
All I can tell you, is that this amp is worth persevering with, as properly set up and calibrated, it sounds stunning.
Thanks again CnoEvil proffesor hat and big boss your comments would be much appreciated thanks Garry
Thanks CnoEvil at least somebody was prepared to give advice anyway i decided to keep the arcam after more extensive listening it excells with music and with more tinkering today is sounding a lot better in surround modes for movies one last question did you set yours up on auto setup or manually as at the moment i have done mine manually using a spl meter or maybe i should try both as my sub a bk monolith can only be sited in one position a dreaded corner Regards Garry
Initially, I set it up with the EQ...but now I have it manually set up, as I have the pre-outs going into a Class A stereo amp and couldn't get the Auto set-up to work, with this Stereo amp powering the front L&R. The more acoustically awkward your room, the more crucial the EQ is to getting the sound right.
If your AV room has a suspended floor, it will greatly help to get something like an Auralex Gramma (or at least a granite slab) to isolate your Sub from it.
Have you tried/managed to get Dolby Volume working, as I think it is very beneficial....and am happy to slowly talk you through it again, if confused by my instructions on your other thread.
