Question for you guys. I recently bought a used denon 1911. It is equipped with audyssey multeq. I also have the anti mode 8033 sub eq I was using since my previous rotel AVR did not have room correction.
I ran audyssey with a mic stand and am happy with the sound but read that all prior forms of audyssey except XT32 heavily correct the upper frequencies over 500hz which can effect speaker performance and hardly correct the sub. I checked the eq corrections under the audyssey menu and saw that the upper frequencies over 500hz are in fact boosted 3-4 dB.
My question is, since I don't have XT32 in this receiver, am I better served with turning the eq off and using the anti mode for sub eq, using the audyssey eq, or using anti mode and copying the audyssey flat curve to the manual eq and changing all corrections for frequencies over 500hz to 0.
Regardless what I do, I am still using the levels and distances set by audyssey.
My speakers are the B&W 685 for front, B&W HTM61 center, PSB S5 for surround, and Tannoy Di5DC for front height. My sub is the HSU STF2. All speakers are crossed away 80hz except the Tannoy which are crossed at 90hz.
