RE: Gave up on HT...

Old thread but...well, I'm in the same boat.

Was 2 channel tube/vinyl. Took a long break from audio, got a 5.1 system, got back into music and now ugh.

So my issue is that the AVR wants to digitize everything to allow room correction (fine), but also for the sub.

Room is too big for the bookshelves and a sub is needed. I could hook up the sub via speaker terminals I guess. There is a 'direct' mode on the AVR to allow the analog signal to come through (but no sub).

Room is dedicated to movies, family loves it. Didn't go big- just a 75" screen and 5.1 since well, budgets and at heart I'm a 2 channel guy.

BTW a center channel does make a big difference (for us in our system). Dialog is crisp and clear. On other systems we had to use subtitles a lot.

Sub is an older Velodyne FSR-12.
