Now I know that everywhere else it's just EZ Set/EQ
, without the II
part but that could be also due to lousy writing... probably you're right, it's not the high-end version - we'll just have to wait and see, I guess.
That same mistake was in the 2650/3650 manuals as well, that section was copied from the 7550hd manual text. Typical for HK.... :d
We already know the 3700 is based directly off the 3650's platform, which means porting over the TI-DSP based ezset/eq II is not possible. Will have to wait and see how the 3700 will eq the subs. Anxious to find out if they are done as a single channel or independently (which could mean possibly a 'dumbed down' version of original ezset/eq2's low frequency eq - which would be great)

M code has made same great posts about the ezset/eq2 correction over the years, a lot of info the old HK avr 745 and 7550hd owner's threads.
Ezset/eq ii was developed in-house by JBL pro team which included Dr. Toole. Consists of both a near and far field eq designs+measurements, which allows the system to determine speaker performance independent of the room acoustics (near field) and with the room interaction (far field)
A big advantage ezseteq2 has or had was that rather than boosting holes and dips it would instead pull down the peaks for a smoother, flatter frequency response while allowing greater headroom for the dynamic range of the DSP.
has seen applications in their high end JBL synthesis line and also used on the lexicon rv5 receiver, besides the HK applications (e.g. Avr 745, 7550hd, HK 990)
This eq program requires significant DSP resources, necessitating dual TI DSPs in the AVRs - which is why it has only been seen on their higher end models ( same for full-process logic 7)
However the "high end" ezseteq2 is now several years old, the 745 was a 2006 model... How it compares to the competitor's newer systems I don't know.
