My question is related to the MultiEQ & ref.level.offset setting on my denon receiver.
Can you define some examples of WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE? I listen to only to 96/24 SACD and DVDA discs as well as DTSHDMA albums. Should I set MultEq to FLAT and REF.OFFSET to 5dB even though the music isn't classical? Is this the right setting for any 'hi-res' media? My Denon let's me see the AUDIO INPUT SIGNAL. Can I use the quality of the signal (ie FS-48kHz, 96kHz) as a measure of 'wide dynamic range'?
As important, I'm doing alot of sim-racing in a Formula One car, the game gives me 7.1 channels. Just as beautiful as a symphony, the formula one engine you know! I've been setting Multieq and ref.levels like the CLASSICAL setting. What would you do? I trust the Audyssey technology but should I switch off MultiEQ, listen via PURE AUDIO in the case of the game since there is no reference level standard as you mentioned.
One-word answers will only encourage me to ask more questions to qualify and all I'm really looking for is your opinion. Hang up your lab coat for a minute and throw me a bone here would ya.
