Air in treble is a funny thing isn't it? Once I played with a tubes I understood air. I had never liked treble until I heard a tube render it so sweetly with ambiance. After hearing what tubes could do I look for it in all my equipment now. Dangerous game tubes tho. I have $5K worth of spare NOS* tubes.

*New old stock.

I was teasing you. I do however know all about tubes. In the guitar world it's called "chasing tone"

I knew you were. However I'm the type of guy that would have passed you some. I often do at headphone meets.

Chasing a sound is fun. I bought loads and loads of tubes before having the desired arrangement (power, rectifier and drive tubes). Once I found my desired sound I purchased 14 sets of everything. 70 years worth. My lifetime.

You're a kind soul I totally get the "desired combination" thing...... it's very similar in guitar amps. I wish I had stockpiled a bunch of NOS tubes years ago. Guitar players seek a different thing tube amp wise than audiophiles....... we want some break up at the right point in our power tubes......... that singing sustained harmonically rich guitar sound that permeates classic rock ........ tube distortion Sorry if I've temporarily derailed the thread

Brain fart here. I had been using my display for a few days, and just setup some new gear. I ran XT32 setup with the tv cranked up pretty good, but I am assuming the test tones go to the pre outs and speaker terminals only and would have nothing to do with anything passing thru the displays speakers and mucking with auto eq? I usually leave the displays speakers disabled.

Just second guessing myself. Wanted to make sure audyssey sweeps werent passed on to the tv speakers thru HDMI and messed with the auto eq for my speakers connected to the AVR.

If I understand your question correctly, Audyssey test tones are played only through the speakers hooked up to your AVR and enabled in your Speaker Configuration Menu. You can track the sweeps as they play through the speakers, and see the virtual speaker display on your screen. If your TV has built-in speakers, those are disabled anyway once you turn on your AVR. So, you're good.

I am trying to improve tonal balance for music listening.
My whole music library has ReplayGain tags calculated for 89dB reference.
However Audyssey's DynamicEQ works with 75dB reference.

Do I need to somehow account for the 14dB difference?
