Yeap I’m a newbie, first post --- as such please excuse my stupidity.
I recently brought the A8, i had a 2.1 PRIR done for me in a recording studio - I hooked it up at home only to find i confused the heck out of myself....
Currently i have the below set up;
PS4 >>>>> HDMI >>>>>> (HDMI in) Realizer (HDMI out) >>> HDMI >>>> Denon AVR1912 >>>>> HDMI out >>>> TV
i also have my turntable through my realizer as below
Turntable >>RCA leads>>>>> Phono Amp >>>RCA leads>>>(line in channels 1,2) Realizer (Phones out) >>>>> Headphone amp >>>>> Hd800s
I then change between the 2 by using the mode->menu on the Smyth remote switching between line and HDMI input
This works great with my PS4 and Turntable using my existing 2.1 PRIR BUT...
My blu-ray player and sat. tv (all direct HDMI outputs to my Denon AVR) completely skip the A8 realizer, and, as my Denon AVR then drives my loud speakers i cant do any PRIR measurements on my 5.1 surround system at home.
I believe i have to position my Realizer so its after the Denon AVR so to speak but i don’t know how...
do I try ?
Blu ray, PS4, Sat tv >>>HDMI >>>>> (HDMI's in )Denon AVR1912 (HDMI out) >>>> (HDMI in) Realizer (Chanels out 1-8) >>>>> loud
whilst HDMI out on the realizer goes into my TV that way I select the source on my Denon?
If so how do I fit 10 L/R speaker channels into 8 out channels from the realizer???
Again apologies for the seemly stupid question but i am very new to this.
thanks in advance
