Re: Those w/Dynaudio, do u leave it set to Dolby ProLogic Surround or 3 channel? (Lotus99)

I leave mine on Surround, but have to admit the sound from Sirius leaves much to be desired.

Re: Those w/Dynaudio, do u leave it set to Dolby ProLogic Surround or 3 channel? (Lotus99)

I generally hate listening to music w/ Surround. Only relatively newish music is mixed in Surround, and to my ears Surround generally muddies certain frequency bands too much. On my V50 w/ premium audio I always listened in 3ch Stereo with the center speaker turned way down.<p>But in this car, I have to admit, Surround sounds pretty good. I have a very slight bump on the low end and middle band and a slight cut on the high end for the front EQ, and I have Surround turned almost all the way down (3 bars up from bottom). Haven't listened to much yet (and no classical yet, which for me is generally terrible w/ Surround) but it sounds nice and full. I'm pretty impressed with the Dynaudio speakers--the XC70 w/ Dynaudio is one of the best sounding and well-balanced audio systems I've heard in a vehicle, but I'm not the thumping bass sort.<p>I used to be an audiophile but then life kicked in and I realized there were more important things than cryogenic interconnects. And in a car all bets are off anyway, particularly when there's a kid singing in the back seat <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">.

I leave mine in surround mode - but we have no satellite radio here ! I have played around comparing the options but ended up with the fuller and enveloping sound that surround produces. It is a very impressive setup IMHO...<p><br>

With Dynaudio..I leave it on Dolby Pro Logic..<p>I also found that to take advantage of the full range..of the stereo..you may want to change your<br>surround setting to front seats..also the equalizer<br>makes a significant difference..
