Sorry, the graphs were lost on a PC crash. But, in essence, my after graphs look exactly like target curve #1, within less than 1 dB. That is all that really matters to me. Independently measured before graphs are not particularly useful or interesting, IMHO, since I do not listen that way.
I did a friend's room with XT/Pro. We tried both mid compensation on and curve #2. Neither of us liked it at all. But, we liked MRC off and curve 1 very much. YMMV.
Music is our interest, so that is what we used exclusively. It is more continuous than movies, and not interrupted by dialog, which is not particularly useful in judging SQ. That is, unless you have a dialog articulation problem, which we do not. In general, you will not have that issue if the after graphs are close to target.
It s a good idea to use hi Rez music if you can for subjective evaluation. We do. Some CDs may have more of a tendency toward "digititis", at least in my experience. But, it may depend on what sources you listen to most and wish to optimize for.
