So I ran a second calibration with the carpet after the first, made some adjustments and it is the best it has sounded. From when I started the first two months to now is night and day. I thought at first life with this system was optimized using dynamic EQ and volume. I could not understand why you guys all said you did not use audysee settings and left it off. I can tell the difference now with audysee on with my new calibration but off sounds great too. There is a noticeable difference off and on but it is far from VERY. The difference is where the dialogue seems to come from. It's pretty cool, they both sound good. I listened to music and found with Audyseey on the parts singing are more centered. With audseey bypass it's less centered and left right distinguishable. Off is similar to Audysee. Now, also the bass is at -.05 and is very nice and vibrant without EQ. With EQ it is very immersive. Simply fantastic this calibration. The carpet was a tremendous help for the center speaker. I really understand now the importance of eliminating reflections. I also paid very close attention to precisely centering my tripod and mic to the millimeter each test. It pays dividends. Thanks very much to those who responded.

What is / are the preferred settings (Trust me I know opinions vary) but I just went from the X4000 to the 5200 and I am not impressed at all yet.
In the audio setup menu, select Audyssey MlutEQ XT32 (On), and select Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume On or Off as you desire.
If Dynamic EQ or Dynamic Volume is On, or both of them are On, then Audyssey MultEQ XT32 is automatically On.

The preferred settings are the ones you prefer you, not me.
But if you want to know; me I prefer Audyssey MultEQ XT32 On, and Dynamic EQ Off, and Dynamic Volume Off. ...For movies.
For music, it depends; sometimes XT32 On, and other times Off. ...And in stereo music and in multichannel music listening. ...Music videos too, on Blu-ray, and Blu-ray Audio, and hybrid SACDs, and DVD Audio...it all depends.
Dyn EQ and Dyn Vol always Off for me, for both movies and music.

But! Check Dynamic EQ On, most people like it best. Me I'm just different than most, that's all. I'm really me, nobody else.
