Hello All,
I just bought an Oppo BD 83 from another member, connected to older Denon AVR 1802...I use the analog multi channel outputs to the Denon for DVD Audio etc.
SO..Question...Both the Oppo & Denon offer speaker size & distance settings...My reading SUGGESTS to make the settings in the Denon, and setting the Oppo to ALL Speakers large & ALL distances Zero.... This way full signal for all channels gets sent to Denon over analog where speaker size & distances will be set/adjusted. This makes sense to me, BUT also read lots of other conflicting information.
Thanks in advance for any help.

My thoughts would run along the same as yours.

Leave the OPPO and adjust the Denon.

I do the same with OPPO and Anthem pre. Seems to work fine.

Thanks, just did it as posted....turns out all this time I had both my previous Panasonic DVD and amp set for delay and speaker size...always thought it sounded good...but now everything sounds amazing...the Oppo sounds warmer, the surround sounds more real now delay is set properly, and the bass with my front towers set to large and sub set to +main is amazing and much "smoother" as the powered subs are in the towers themselves....I can't believe I had it wrong all these years..it's like a whole new system

further discussions with Oppo & more reading of the manual
It appears the Oppo Bass management ONLY affects the Analog outputs, so for DVD Audio & SACD you NEED to set speaker size & distance in the Oppo, For digital outputs you need to set the speaker size & distance in the Amp, confrmed with both Oppo & Denon now.
