I have a deno 3311 which has audessey xt and also an onkyo with audessey 2eq and honestly i have to say i dont noticed any difference at all. I ran audessey on both receivers using same Speakers, same sub, same room and for me audessey is just "excellent on papers" but in real life are pretty much the same. Cant say nothing about xt32;
On the Onkyo the sub is tighter than the denon and on the onkyo I can hear better details from surrounds than with the denon!!
