Can someone explain how the home theater bypass control on the preamp works and how I go about making all the connections? I have a Denon 4311 AVR which, I believe, has all of the necessary inputs and outputs I need. Just not sure how to do it. It would be nice to have the option of using the sub in the two-channel playback on occasion. Thanks!
    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay. If you have an entrie like bypasse on your CJ ET3SE, you connect the Denon 4311 AVR with PRE OUT L and PRE OUT R to the BYPASS Entrie of your CJ ET3SE.

    Hope that's help you.

    Best regards

    You have to do the auto calibration everytime before you watch a movie?

    Re: Integrating Two-Channel Set Up Into a Home Theater

    May I suggest you refer to the owners manual that came with your Denon to accomplish a proper connection to your left front, center, right front, left rear and right rear surround sound speakers. Finally, how and where to plug in your speaker calbes and how to pre-set your Dennons is illustrated in its owners manual. Further, visit with a Denon dealer. The salesman or technician in that store or department can discuss this with you, point out things and actually show you how connections are applied (plugged in) and where they are plugged in and why. In my opinion, space does not permit most anyone to completely explain this to you in a reply on this forum

    I'm agree with DOC.

    As I told, you connect your PRE OUT to your CJ with entries BYPASS. This is the best connection to use only one time and only one time the auto-calibration.
    That's what I do with my system. I have a Pioneer SC-LX85 for Home Theater. I connect PRE OUT to BYPASS input of my JR CORUS.

    Best regards

    Re: Integrating Two-Channel Set Up Into a Home Theater

    RDS, I was wondering if you've done this and how you liked it?

    I wouldn't want to burn tube life watching movies and years back I had a CJ 2-channel system, the sound of the CJ monoblocks didn't even come close to timbre matching with the solids state amp being used for HT, I had Arcam, I'd imagine the Denon receiver would even sound further apart. The mismatch sound drove me crazy. I immediately, bought a 5-channel amp for the HT and kept the two systems separate. I physically switched speaker cables at the back of the speaker to which system I wanted to use. Not so difficult using bananas and easy to reach binding posts.

    Re: Integrating Two-Channel Set Up Into a Home Theater

    Hello Mr. Peabody,

    I got everything working with the CJ home theater bypass but then decided to keep the two channel and home theater dichotomy separate. I purchased a 200wpc 7-channel power amp and am using the Denon receiver as my pre-processor. The sound dramatically improved.

    No, I remember where I set the volume on my VAC Pre after running the calibration. My volume is in notches so it is easy to set to same exact notch each time.
