Silent Cinema & Dolby Headphone comparisons - Page 2

post #16 of 67
any other products out there that have the Silent Cinema option? I do not have speaker, so a stand alone unit would be great.

KBI I found some of your posts on the AVS forums about the room sizes. Also the music enhancer DSP that you mention, is that the Straight Enhancer mode? Because for mine Silent Cinema isn't available for that DSP.

No, but you can always buy a cheap yamaha receiver.

Have you fiddled with the parameters or other DSP's..Chamber is actually pretty good for gaming modified.. Has the brightness and reverb, which allows for more weight, realness, and 3d imaging.

It's not. It's made to extend the highs and lows lossed with compressed audio. It does, however, expand the left and right width, more up front, and better dynamics to these ears.

I'll give that a go. Thanks. If I figure out anything that sounds really good I'll post some settings. Also should be getting an x-fi HT within the month to do a comparison of CMS headphone and silent cinema.

Not to sound like I'm blowing you off..I just haven't found the ideal setting, since I change them frequently. You have a 360/PS3..Ninja gaiden has some reference levels which demonstrate sound coming from the back exceptionably well. The Alma battle, when she is throwing pillars at you, and level 13..Aquduct.

No I understand. I myself have been searching for a decent setting but just need some direction to follow. However one thing I noticed about the Yamaha receiver is that it has great synergy with my Denon MD5000s in Pure Direct mode which is basically bypassing everything else and going straight to its amp. Absolutely crisp detail and transparent background.

EDIT: I've found that action game with these parameters gives a fairly good 3d environment as well as not adding too much echo to the sound:

-DSP = +3
-P. INI. DLY = 10ms
-P. ROOM SIZE = 0.6
-S. INI. DLY = 20ms
-S. ROOM SIZE = 2.0

found a BIG limitation with my Yamaha receiver. It doesn't accept PC resolutions unless they're the standard digital television resolutions. The awful thing about this is that unless i decide to give up 5:4, 4:3 and 16:10 resolutions altogether, I must bypass the HDMI port for use with my PC. Not too much of a loss in that I can use the Pure Direct mode straight out of SPDIF input whereas HDMI shuts the screen off to use this mode. But I sacrifice the DOLBY True HD that I would otherwise get from the Auzentech HT. But then again, the PS3 would be the only thing really taking advantage of that anyway. Which begs the question... Prelude instead of the HT?

Found some good settings that work for the Action Game DSP:

P. INI. DLY 8ms
P. Room Size 0.6
S. INI. DLY 26ms
S. Room Size 2.0


Settings tested with Far Cry 2 on the PC. The old settings I posted made enemies chatter appear closer than it actually was. This creates a realistic amount of distance between their voices and your position.

I'm trying to change the parameters of a DSP on my RX-V663, but it just keeps resetting the parameters after I initialize it. The Memory Guard is turned off, so it should work. What am I doing wrong?

Thats the problem. it goes back to the default settings when you use the initialize function.

So, I should leave the Parameters menu after I changed them without initializing? Is that the way to edit the parameters? I feel stupid I though the "*" before each parameter had to disappear before it actually changed it.

No problems with my PS3 at all! I watched a couple of Blu-Ray movies and played Metal Gear Solid 4 on it. I liked it. It could be a bit better, but I was too lazy to edit the parameters back then.

Yes.
