When you disable Audyssey, the Graphic EQ option (under the Audio menu) should no longer be greyed out. Go into the GEQ setup screen and you should see a "Copy" menu least that is how it works on my Denon 4520.

Thanks, I think my plan of trying Denon first and having Yamaha as a close 2nd in case I'm not happy with the Denon is a good plan. I would really like to be able to use XT32 but if it behaves in terms of boost eq like my current EQ options than it won't be usable for me.

I know YPAO volume on the Yamahas is like Dynamic EQ on the Denons. Does it require YPAO to be on to work just like Audyssey must be on for Dynamic EQ?

Also, can anyone link me to the official thread for the RX-A870/1070 and 860/1060? I have some questions about the various 'flavors' of YPAO.

What's funny how people describe audio. Warm means what? Fuzzy, muted highs and thick bass? A fellow avs guy came last month to hear my canton. He was like wow they are so thick and warm. It's amazing. Lol. Canton are sharp and clinical. He thought warm was good highs.

People use these to describe audio but don't really understand meaning.

Yamaha and onkyo have similar sound. Detailed sound with full of life.

Audyssey flattens the sound to much. Takes the excitement out of it. Best thing you can do is turn audyssey off and eq yourself. Marantz 7011 sounds exactly like denon 4300 after audyssey eq.

Yamaha has the best eq to adjust. Yamaha just needs to strengthen preout gain to over 3v rms. It would be perfect after that!

Audyssey is great for people that can never figure out how to setup their system. It'll take you 90 percent of the way there. Will never get you to perfect though.

A onkyo or integra with no eq with just ch level adjust will sound better then most audyssey avrs. Why they really dropped audyssey. Was no advantage to keeping. Other then a marketing move to say we have it.

Pioneer also does a great job customizing eq. They've been doing it same way for over a decade. Pioneer was criticized for years for being to bright or clinical. So they adjusted to sound more like a denon or marantz. They really changed in 2014 year. Since that change the pioneer elite line has been on a steady decline. The sc68 or sc57 is much better then sc99 or lx901.
