Nobody is recommending that anyone use an Audyssey mic with a Yamaha receiver. I don't see how that would be a good idea. Definitely would be best to get the same model mic that comes with the Yamaha.
I was referring to lulimet' comment that the Audyssey mic discussed worked fine with a Yamaha receiver, which suggests a lack of understanding of the necessity of mic calibration with room measurement software.
