3. Poor wording indeed, but no, you won't lose Audyssey by adjusting speaker/sub volume levels.
1. I used the dual backup memory function and also remembered an earlier discussion using the web interface to perform a system backup so I also backed up the settings to a file on my computer.
2. I was able to adjust the speaker levels as desired thru Manual Setup - Levels as advised. When I entered this menu earlier and saw the Test Tones heading, I incorrectly thought it was a new manual speaker setup... This worked great for me.
BTW, Sgt. Peppers did sound much better to my ears with the higher rear levels in relation to the LCR and sub.
Hi there. I do have an inexpensive SPL meter I bought from Radio Shack a few years ago and I've read the follow up posts concerning the test tones. I have the test disk mentioned and may try for fun to see how the SPL meter results compare relative to the Audyssey configuration results. I have to say, the last time I ran Audyssey and configured my speakers, I got the best, almost magical sound balanced around my seating position. Just outstanding sound, and have not touched the configuration in years now. I have changed out my TV and a small chair in the room but have held off re-running Audyssey until a few more upcoming changes in the furniture are complete.
Thank you all for your help! As always, this is a great forum full of knowledgeable, helpful people!
