Hi guys, can i check if sc-lx59 can do bass eq? The SW eq onky got 36hz n 63hz, my crossover is 80hz so only 2 bands i can adjust?
Nope. But why you need to adjust the EQ while the mcacc ald tuned and optimized automatically? Or you believe you can do better than calibration system or just wan to tune to the sound you think suit to your taste?

Better check again there is no short in between those pre-out rca. You can switch off the Main means the power amp in LX57 is completely turn off. Do isolation check by disconnect one by one pre-out channel connection to filter the actual root cause.
One last thing you can do a factory reset follow by full mcacc.
Please update your finding so that we can help further.


thanks bro joagib and bro kelvinsin for some of the advices. Bought a usb laptop fan and put on top on my avr as bro joagib mentioned that it might be due to heat. Factory reset also done and a full auto mcacc calibration. Watched some movie scenes which have lots of impact, no tripping. But while changing disc from my bluray player, my avr suddenly restart. About 3 sec, another restarting. It happened a total of 3 times. Hmm...i think its time to send for servicing.

i dont think mcacc  adjust anything in the LF, REW showing messy peaks and nulls, SW eq is flat as well, dont think its auto adjusted .

Its does. Can you imagine if the mcacc or audessy calibrate the whole frequency range but leave LF and require all user to manual adjust the sub EQ? Do you think is possible?

I think this could be the reason why you found no seen sub req compensation in mcacc.

"Subwoofer
The subwoofer EQ feature allows you to adjust the subwoofer tone. For Auto MCACC, the subwoofer EQ is automatically adjusted with EQ type ALL CH ADJ, while manual adjustment is available with EQ type SYMMETRY and FRONT ALIGN. As
with other EQ, the manual adjustment can be done on the AV receiver’s GUI."


If you used Auto MCACC with "keep all sp", you should have 3 different sound mode which is ALL CH ADJ, SYMMETRY and FRONT ALIGN. Choose the ALL CH ADJ mode and you should able to see the different.

I believe bro joagib has advised you to do some isolation test to find where is the potential root cause right? At least you will have basic idea even if u tell pioneer service center to narrow down the range with useful and detail description.

yup will do more trials to find out the root cause. But kind of busy this week. Will continue next week.Thanks alot.

Which connection did you use from bdp to Avr?
I believe Hdmi cable to Avr.
Any other connection for your stereo listening? Like RCA /OPTICAL/COAXIAL to Avr?

Can we set front height and top ceiling config for 5.1.4 set up?
My current config is top front n top rear ceiling speakers.

Another setting avail is front height n rear height but no mixture of front height n top rear.

Playing ard to see front height or top front is better.

Certain scene, there seems to be a gap at the front height area btw top front n my front LR speakers..

Alas, my 6+ years old LX83 failed me last night.  The audio simply stopped, only video was displayed. Tried the headphones also no luck! :P

Any Bros here had similar problem?  I assume the amp is fried!  Has anyone sent his for repairs and what was the damage like?

Or it’s not worth repairing it :).  Time to upgrade? ::) :)

Tks

Not advisable to repair. At least 200-300 required. Even used Lx58 should better in term of functionality and sq

6 year +  AV amp is like 6 year old entry level DAC.
I doubt it can even fetch $350.
Time to upgrade to maybe another Pioneer which comes with 2 yr warranty with home service and energy friendly Class D amp.

Tks for the input!  I was just about to post that my LX83 is working fine now :)

I spent the afternoon yesterday to clean all the contacts, vacuumed the internal modules and blew hard thru’ the headphone jack, and voila, it’s sprang to life again :)
Guessed it’s a matter of overheating! :)

Not that I have heard but i think it does help if you have already run a Dirac Live room correction before calibrating your HT channels! :)
