5.1 with YPAO. It is quick and easy to use. I've already done it several times as my new speakers have arrived.


Nice frequency range on the surrounds at 38-23K Hz. The sub is 25-200 Hz. Depending on the frequency range of the mains I’d check how YPAO set the crossover and rest it to THX standard on 80 Hz – again, if the fronts have a good range. I‘d hesitate setting it too high (110 Hz) since the overlap with the mains and surrounds affects both.

Some would say set the surrounds as ‘small’ letting the sub carry the lower range but while that’s true it reduces the surround total response; I’ve argued for many years that surrounds be as wide a frequency range as possible.

Looks like your home theater is coming together, Kenneth.
