I agree those speakers should do well. What Marantz model AVR is that? Am i right in assuming you are running a 2 channel system only?

Of the auto EQs I've had, I do not like them for music. And most of the time not even for movies. I also do not use Dolby volume...just total compression.
That's why I like my P7, pure analog. And if I do listen to music thru the AVR for L7 or dts neo 6, its set to EQ-off, tone controls-off, mains-full range.

Custom, one of a kind pair, MJC212 mains, mod PT800 center, PT800 surrounds, SUB1500s. Parasound P7, Citation 19, Parasound HCA2205A, HK AVR3600, Marantz TT, Denon disc player, MacBook Pro w/ DragonFly usbDAC.

I had an Integra AVR with Audyssey and just like everyone else is saying, I would turn it off when listening to music. My current setup is an Anthem MRX510 with a Parasound A51. From what I've experienced, room correction does have an effect on the sound of the amp, but it doesn't take away any of the good characteristics of the A51. In my opinion ARC is a way better room correction than Audyssey and I found the sound is better with it left on. I really can't say enough good things about my current setup with Anthem and Parasound.
