I understand that XT has better resolution filters, I get that it's better. What I'd like to know is how much better? How can I value it? Can anyone testify to how much better XT is over the vanilla? I tried searching for some actual comments on the percieved improvements but didn't have any luck. I'm sure it's buried in this thread somewhere, but it's hard to search for.
Hi, according to several experts Audyssey MultEQ XT32 is the true beneficial Auto Room EQ.
Anything else below (inferior flavors, including XT, MultEQ, and 2EQ) are missing some essence.
When Audyssey was first introduced to the mass population in our AV receivers back in 2006, it was revolutionary.
With years passing by, XT32 was the most impressive improvement, and we discovered how much more, compared to the other Audyssey flavors below. ...Also, a receiver that is Audyssey MultEQ Pro Capable is another higher notch if you are going to buy a licence with the Pro kit (about $600 extra).
Audyssey MultEQ has a very fair amount of filters in the bass (subwoofer), very good, as a fact as much as Audyssey MultEQ XT (I believe).
The thing with less than XT32 is the less than perfect EQuing all around; mids, highs, and bass too, plus only one sub.
Nowadays, we have YPAO, MCACC, AccuEQ, ARC, and Audyssey. ...Plus MiniDSP and Dirac Live.
There are several others too but those are the mainstream ones.
Audyssey MultEQ XT32 is the way to go. I think. ...Less in the family is ok, but less nonetheless.
