centre channel fine-tuning issue
May 18, 2006
To time align your centre speaker you will need to delay it by roughly 1.5mS, you will most likely find that you can only set it to 2mS, this will be adequate. As for level compensation, I would not bother, leave it at the same setting as the other fronts, unless you have a level meter to adjust it with, and then there is unlikely to be more than a ... more

Therefore you must enter time delay and level corrections into your SACD player. However each manufacturer does things diffently, so it pays to read the ... more

May depend what version firmware was in your pioneer, I understand that there were a few bugs a bit like what you describe in earlier batchs, latter ones came with new firmware fix them. The second player you tried may have latter firmware. Contact Pioneer and see if you have the lattest firmware, they may send you a CD with the upgrade on ... more
