Being that these universal players need to wear so many hats, it is quite difficult to make them do all things well for a fair price. Even most of the $1000-$1500 universal players have their flaws....

I had this same issue

I experienced this same issue a few months back when I got my VTF-3MkII. Some of you may remember my posts trying to describe the "staccato machine gun fire" like blasts that were eminating from my...

Woah! 11:00!!! I had mine at about 10:00 in a 23x19 room and I felt my head pressurizing. The walls were flexing, the panels in the crappy drop ceiling were snowing. My fiancee' thought an ogre...

Forgive me, that is insane 16hz bass. I still don't believe how much output the VTF-3MkII has at this depth. Simply fantastic.

Really, it is safe to play that song. Just keep your sub output at the receiver level flat (0dB), and keep the volume knob on the sub only slightly higher than nominal (which you will probably find...

jephdood,

Once you got the volume dialed in right, did you notice that the deep organ notes produce a "staccato" effect with the bass, where you actually hear the air driving the pipe organ shooting...

I'd try it as well

I think the professional consensus is that unless you have a large sized room, at least 15 x 15 x 8 or larger, the advantages of the 6.1/7.1 setups diminish.

I personally run a 7.1 setup, and found...

But do you have the ability to selectively choose the crossover point per each speaker? If so, set it to 60 for the Minis, 80 for the Atoms.

What's the rated response on the Mini's?

I can't remember the specs on the Mini's but I thought that they are flat somewhere down to the low-mid 50Hz range. If so, 60hz would work well as a crossover freq. It's always best to use as full...

Mini-monitors, use an 80Hz crossover, unless you could use a 65 or 70 hz one (most receivers don't have this option).

You should be fine

surrounds really don't get that much of a workout, unless you are using sources such as DVD-Audio or multichannel SACD. also be very careful using surround modes similar to 5, 6, or 7 channel...

Dumb Question

Dumb question, but when you run this calibration tool, how high do you have the master volume set? Or does this YPAO take over master volume settings as well. From what you are saying, it sounds...

Hmmm. . .

I have a pair of Paradigm Mini Monitors (v.3s) that are currently relegated to my surrounds, but I did run them for break in (and to hear just how beautiful they sounded) as my mains. I am...

Upping the budget

If you had an extra 400 for the speakers, (total 800), I would probably tell you to upgrade the mains over moving up in the subwoofer. Everyone says that these Hsu's sound fantastic (I am not yet an...

Good solid midbass

Boomer, you are completely right by focusing on a system that will first sound good in 2 channel stereo. If a system sounds great in stereo, it is easy to build it into a good surround system by...
