Not to my understanding, strictly a decision the avr manufacturer made based on the info Audyssey gathered; Audyssey would still not set speakers to large if it had been left up to them. Not a big deal but not the intent of Audyssey "Small and Large is one of the greatest disservices the industry has brought to the consumer" https://audyssey.zendesk.com/entries...w-mic-results-
But since it has been incorporated into the avr routine labeled "Audyssey" and the avr manufacturer not going with this Audyssey recommendation....
