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....

It sounds like you two are really saying the same thing.

(good thing because you're both correct!)

Yeah its just a slight distinction but one I always found interesting as Audyssey gets "blamed" for this when it wasn't their intention. What avr manufacturer wants to tell their customers their junk is small, though?
