Any suggestions on my initial setup of my new CATS?  I actually received one of three today.  The other two should land tomorrow!  Looks like their are three mute buttons and one DSP button.  Where should one have the DSP button at least initally?  Also where should the initial gain be set at?  Is it worthwhile to run Audessy from my Marantz processor?
Thanks for any input!

As indicated next to the mute buttons, mute is engaged when the button is out, so you want all 3 in their lower of the 2 positions.  There is only 1 DSP program on the Catalyst 12Cs, so might as well just go with all buttons pushed in.  Also double check you haven't accidentally let the 80Hz high pass filter switch on.  Again the switch should be IN or depressed.

Level will be very much system dependent.  In many systems I have been able to set up with the level at 0dB, but there are cases where -10dB or lower was warranted.

Enjoy,

Thanks Mark!  I have to say that the fit and finish of your CATS are quite impressive.  Once I get them setup, I'll leave some pictures and feedback.

I also had some good input from Peter C.  Thanks!
