Hi,

LOL! I tend to be the opposite. I think of it as being pragmatic, but then again, I'll probably be the one electrocuted by a defective design.

I remember your struggle to make Audyssey work, and I have read, on a couple of other threads, about your alternative approach. I have long since become convinced that Audyssey can't work well for everyone, in every room. But, like you, I would expect it to work better as the overall frequency response in the room improves due to acoustical treatments. Still, in the end, it comes down to what sounds better to you. I hope that you will be able to get some benefit from it at some point. I remain convinced that it can be helpful in the modal region in most rooms, although there may potentially be trade-offs in other parts of the frequency range.

Hopefully, your acoustical treatments will neutralize any negative effects higher, while letting you enjoy the benefits of automated EQ below about 200Hz. In my large room, I don't have any real issues with early reflections, but even with bass traps, XT-32 provides some additional clarity that I would hate to be without. If I had to trade that for some issues higher up in the frequency spectrum, though, I'm not sure what I would choose.

Regards,
Mike

If Audyssey had a switch to limit EQ at say 200, 300 and/or 500hz it would be perfect...... Easy to use, no external hardware other than the AVR and mic needed and fully automatic. Just need to be able to eliminate the harshness that some people hear with Audyssey in their own rooms.

Sorry Guys for this off-topic again, but I need to come back to the issue (read: pain) on non-functioning of the Edit feature. I've already reported my own post to the admins (mods) but still no resolution. Meantime, recenty I've posted on other threads and to my greatest surprise over there the Edit button works. It seems to me to be a glitch only at the this Audyssey thread. I'm on Firefox (45.0.1), but I don't think its a brower issue.

Anyone with any idea? Thx.

Same here Feri. This is the only thread that I can't edit, and worse yet, it sometimes takes my 3-4 tries to actually get my post to go through........ and if I don't copy it before, and it doesn't go through, I lose all of my post and have to start over.

Only this thread.

D Bone, for this purpose once on this thread I recommended to put MultEQ at second place after XT32. It has the same 128x filter resolution for the subwoofer channel as XT, but does less in the satellite department (2x instead of 16x). Just a thought!

Did you also report the problem? The more report the more attention we may get. Hopefully!

That's one way I guess, but I like my idea better.

Hi Feri,

I think it's been going on for about two months now, and although I also use Firefox and can't edit on this thread with two different computers, I don't think its a browser issue either. I can edit my posts fine on any other threads.

A couple of months ago, the whole website was experiencing problems, including notification issues. I think it was at about that same time that it went from sometimes being difficult to edit posts on this thread, to being impossible to do so. I may look back at some older posts of mine to see when I was last able to edit here. But if I find out anything, I will have to put my results in a new post.

Regards,
Mike

Even though I hit "Like" it doesn't mean I like it!

Only this thread.
yes I see it too, and reported it

the issue is simple: the first post in this thread is from 2007

thread is simply too big....

Dear Mark,

Me thinks the other threads are too small! Kudos to AVS for allowing and maintaing such a thread where particular enthusiast can congregate! A minor problem like this Edit malfunction I'm sure can be easily healed!

Best!

That's funny, Feri! I went back in the thread, and it appears that we have been unable to edit for only about a month, although it seems longer to me. This thread has always had some glitches due to its length, but completely losing the edit function seems to me to be related to the overall website issues that we were experiencing a few weeks ago. If nothing else, there was a coincidence of timing.

Someone create a Part II thread. The software is bogging down on this which will continue to get worse.

Mike, that would be a great idea. Meantime, can the admins at AVS support the idea to put "Part II" into the "Sticky" right below "Part I" and keep it there. That would help enormously, I think, since this is the very most popular, long time and most frequently visited thread here on AVS. Seed for thought! Thanks for your help!

Mike,

If someone did do that, would there be any drawbacks that you can see? I assume that links to the Set-Up Guide and the FAQ would still work, or perhaps they could even be imported into the beginning of the new thread. I wouldn't be too worried about losing thread search capabilities as the thread is so long as to make those pretty impractical anyway.

If you closed this thread, once the new one was up and running, would there be some kind of message re-directing people to Part II? Unfortunately, I am just trying to explore the issue, and not volunteering to start a new thread. Compared to many people on the Forum, I'm a bit of a doofus about this sort of thing. But, we have plenty of tech savvy people on the thread who could probably do it if the posting/editing situation is not going to improve, and may as you suggested, continue to worsen over time.

Regards,
Mike
