Thumbs up Lastest firmware 2.5 XA2 fix bass issues.

Hi everyone, the lastes firmware 2.5 for the XA2 fixed the bass issues just update your device and change SPDIF to Bistream and HDMI to AUTO, Speakers set large and distances / db to Zero.

And you are going to be surprised and happy with 5.1 analog output for enjoy DD+ and Dolby True HD.

See you later,

Charolin, are you using the XA2's analog out? How does the SPDIF and HDMI affect that?

Just curious...

Yes, I am using the XA2īs analog output and the HDMI just for video to my TV, SPDIF = Bistream and HDMI = AUTO.

Works very good and sound better.

Firmware 2.5 does not fix the speaker management issues regarding selecting a phantom center channel. I would be very skeptical that any audio changes were made at all.

Hmmm..if you have all the speakers set to large, withe distances zero and levels zero, there was never a problem anyway even with the SPDIF set to bitstream. Only those that had speakers set to small will be aware of bass issue changes.

My experience using the 5.1 analog out (my pre-pro has a great analog section but an obsolete DA and can't handle 24/96) was that there was no change at all in the analog, which has been running just the way it should since I got the unit...
