sorry, don't mean to confuse you. Once again AUTO SETUP and MANUAL SETUP are two separate functions, that affect most of the same parameters-- especially "SOUND MENU" parameters.
YPAO automatically calibrates, and enables, the Parametric Equalizer (PEQ or "AUTO PEQ") function, as well as several other parameters. While the Graphical Equalizer (or "GEQ") is set, and enabled, during MANUAL SETUP mode only.
So when you go into MANUAL SETUP, after AUTO SETUP has been run, and select "GEQ" at EQUALIZER parameter (under SOUND MENU), the AUTO PEQ settings (from your YPAO session) are disabled or switched off, and the graphical equalizer is now enabled for you to manually adjust.
You can always switch back to your initial YPAO AUTO PEQ settings by going into MANUAL SETUP, navigate back to EQUALIZER menu parameter, and select "AUTO PEQ" (instead of "GEQ").
Or, you can select "EQ OFF" parameter to switch off all EQ function. This is what I'm meaning by going back in manually and "tweaking" as necessary, because there are certain parameters that YPAO chooses that need to be re-set, or re-adjusted- ie. for example speaker size (small or large), etc.,..I think this capability is pretty cool.
I have mostly preferred the graphical equalizer (GEQ) function, I have everything nearly flat, or @ 0db. However, later I plan to experiment more with the RX-V2700's multi-YPAO setting capability, and try switching around between various AUTO PEQ configurations.
