Hi John,how does the AVP18 processor compares sonically to P20 or the P9 analogue preamps? Regarless of bass management, it seems a processor for two chanel is a no for hifi.
Does anyone have the dimensions? The website unhelpfully says "17"Also, the most unique feature for me is the digital out--I like the option of sending it to a higher end DAC or DSP. I assume it sends two channels to the digital out? If so, could it send the other channels to the existing preouts?

This is intended for Mr John Casler.I'm new to this forum after searching for threads on the AVP-18 (they are pretty limited so far). The other day I placed my order for the AVP-18 processor and the MCH-300XSEC7 high-end multichannel amp (installer version). Upgrading from a Denon receiver (2009 model) and returning to separates again for the first time in 12 years this is bound to be a killer kombo, I'm hoping, taking my speaker system to new heights.I have a question about a feature that is important to me, relating to the possibility of independent and/or on-the-fly speaker level adjustments - is that a possibility on this processor? Or are those settings always global and affect all inputs and all soundfields? For example, when playing Blu-ray I may wish one particular level setting on the center channel and surround channels, but another when watching HDTV through a different input. This is an extremely useful feature, one that many processors sadly omit these days.
I have a question in regards to one of the suppose features of the AVP-18.."Front channel bi-amplification capability"...But from looking at the reviews online I haven't seen any other mention of that. Only bass management options in the menu screens. Could someone confirm high past low pass crossover adjustability for the front speakers? And what extra channels will the active crossovers be sent out on?
I believe the new firmware may even eliminate the XO function as it was originally designed for a limited speaker application.If you are looking for the AVP-18 to serve as a XO function for your main speakers, I might suggest that it is limited in that aspect.
Hi Ricky,Sorry, I didn't get notified of this question by the normal e-mail Those settings are "global" and do affect all soundfields.However, you have several PEQ settings that can be saved, where you could boost the Center Channel only on all bands as needed, and simply select it when you use that specific input. So PEQ 1 could be Bluray, and PEQ 2 could be HDTV, PEQ 3 could be another input.It is easy to change to any of the PEQ settings from the remote.I think I may have not thought of this when I responded to you on AVS, so I will also go there and mention how this can be accomplished.Hope that helps.
Hi Ricky,Yes, I would put about 150 hours on both units and then get serious. Some even report 200 Regarding the PEQ; While not a perfect solution (and I haven't tried it) you would want to raise the 11 bands of equalization for the CENTER Channel Only. Adjust all 11 bands upward, using the broadest Q setting available. Again, I haven't tried this, but it should allow you to boost the Center Channel Bands and save that setting. Then select that setting when you use the input you wanted it to adjust.
Hi Ricky,We just received a note on that. It is for a highly calibrated mike that is now being tested, and not yet available, so the download was put up prematurely.While the current mike is better than most other mikes, NuFORCE is now testing these "calibrated" mikes to push the envelope of AutoEQ.This would probably be an "after market" mike for the most fastidious users, since the present mike is actually excellent.
Hi Ricky,As of now they do not have a price, and certainly the dealers should be able get you one when they are available.The CTO is testing them right now, so the firmware listing was premature.I'll announce them here when they become available.
