Okay, I have a few questions for the Yamaha 1400/2400 owners. A friend of mine is in the process of buying a new receiver. My question is regarding EQ/Multi channel settings. On my Pioneer, for stereo sources I have two modes. 1. Stereo - 2 ch with sub-woofer 2. Direct - 2 ch no subwoofer Does the Yamaha provide 2 channel with subwoofer? The second question is.. Does your receiver allow you to have different speaker level controls for multi-channel inputs? For example can you use the speaker level controls on receiver to calibrate audio output from dvd multi in? If so does this effect the channel levels on other sources (ex. DVD opt. or TV input)? Last question.. How does the auto calibration work? Does the receiver allow you to customize your eq settings and use the YPAO? For example with my Pioneer ELite, I can use the MCACC and still have 2 other custom EQ settings that I can configure to my liking. I can also copy the MCACC settings to another custom setting and make any changes I want w/o effecting the auto-calibration. These features are important to him, he is a tweaker and would love to have some versitility when doing this. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
