They explain it on Onkyo's site. It's not an Audyssey rebrand. It is a very crippled minimalistic version that only measures at 1 position and ignores your mains and subs. A MASSIVE step backwards from XT32.

It just brings me to the last page... even though I click on the little arrow. Lower quality here than the Onkyo with the 24 Hz bug

It's working for me. It's about the only thing on the forum that works the way it's supposed to anymore......

Hi, all.... I'm having a problem with my 818 receiver's output. I had something similar happen with my 905b years ago, and don't remember what I did to fix it.

I have a 5.2 surround sound system consisting of Polk Mains and dual SVS subs. I love lots of bass, and the SVS's don't disappoint. The wife and kids went out of town, so I primed myself for a good movie, popped it in, and had *no* bass. None. I checked the level calibrations and founds that very little sound was emanating from my subs. I checked the wiring, and sure enough, one sub cable seemed to have a bad connection. As soon as I unplugged that one sub from my "Y" cable, the other sub sprang to life. Wanting to watch the movie, I decided I would limp along with the one sub and get a new cable today. I exited the level calibration setup and went back tot he movie. STILL no bass. I cycled through every single audio menu (for some reason it was set on "all channel stereo"), but nothing I did brought the sub online.

Any thoughts? Again--the one sub is working perfectly in the audio calibration menu, so why is no signal being sent to it during movie playback? Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

Further proof of what I said.

For those of you that don't realize that AccuEQ is junk compared to XT32, here is a comparison with graphs proving it: http://www.hifi-forum.de/viewthread-101-1645.html

I was going to sell my nr818 for the nr838, but this move by Onkyo will force me to look elsewhere. I might even wait for the 2015 model. Will AccuEQ hinder sales for Onkyo? Only time will tell.
