Thinking of upgrading my RX-V371 to the 373. Only thing I gain is OSD and YPAO calibration.

Is YPAO worth it? I mean does it provide a better listening environment?

If you sell the 371and get sme money to get the 373 then maybe. Otherwise both receivers are very similar then its not worthy.

The simple answer is yes. Room correction like YPAO should make your listening experience better depending on your speaker configuration and room environment.

The benefit of room correction depends on the room and the software. YPAO isn't considered the most sophisticated room correction scheme here. If you're upgrading take the opportunity to consider other options within your budget.

Audiosceptics accept audio trials using 25 people. A recent Oxford study with over 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials shows for every 1,000 people taking diclofenac or ibuprofen there would be 3 additional heart attacks, 4 more cases of heart failure and 1 death every year.

Which EQ setting do most prefer: Flat, Front, or Natural?

I've been experimenting lately and without a doubt Flat sounds best. What's strange is, it's the only way I get good bass out of my speakers. Very strange since I thought YPAO didn't do any bass eq.

Of course it does bass EQ. I wonder where others got the idea that it does not. The parametric EQ shows the graphs for all your speakers including your sub after running YPAO

I prefer Natural with my old RX-V1800, to my ears it sounds "richer" than Flat.
