I know this will likely cause "controversy", but i am looking for the pros and cons of each. I currently run the Sony ST-DE575 receiver with a set of RT600i's for fronts, a CS245i center, two "older" (they will eventually be updated) bookshelf rears, and a seperate Velodyne CHT8 subwoofer with options for line level or speaker-level and a switch for direct/internal x-over.
I don't believe that I can turn off the built-in x-over on the receiver. It seems I can only alter the signal sent to the Sub by setting speakers to "small" or "large" which activates Sony's bass redirection circuitry.
I am looking for a solution that will give me the best possible "clean" output for DVD, yet will still give me the depth in my music (without sounding like I am inside a giant woofer).
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thank you to all!
