For that application the short answer in my books is no, at least not without room EQ in the mix. Having said that I do believe strongly that the Audyssey in the Denon and Onkyo is better than the HK's EZSet EQ and Yammy's YPAO specifically in the bass correction.
I don't know which Audyssey applications the 606 has but I do believe the 1909 has both Audyssey Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ which are worth their weight in gold for both for TV watching and lower than reference volume use IMO.
