Thanks for everyone's input on this thread. It's been a big help for the last couple of years owning my SR5005.

Generally very happy with it, but as of late, it seems to be acting a bit weird. It's almost as if Audyssey is either self-regulating, intervening, or simply forgetting settings. Should it need to be rerun on a regular basis?

e.g., the center channel volume sometimes is so low as to be almost silent. Dialog is so low, you have to turn on closed captioning. I thought maybe the cat had knocked the speaker wires out of joint, but they were fine. Sounds was coming out, so it was in straight 2-channel stereo mode.

I've rerun the Audyssey setup a few times, with inconsistent results. Now the center channel is bumped up +10 dB, so it's dominating in volume, but the quality is shoddy at best. Boxy, someone else mentioned, like Loudness is turned up way too high.

I can related to what Patrick relayed in post #794 , so I played with the custom / manual EQ. Seems better, but the levels are still funky by speaker. Can I re-run Audyssey without it goofing up the EQ? Couldn't find an easy spot on the on-screen menus to adjust each channel's level manually.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks kindly in advance.

You shouldn't have to run Audyssey again. Try setting Dynamic Volume to OFF if using it. Could also be the center channel amp is going out. Try doing a soft reset by unplugging the power cable for 10 minutes.
