Thanks Jerry, I'll probably never have any use for them anyway. Sorry to be so persistent about nothing except my own curiousness....

I am not a Windows user so I cannot answer this. But I am thinking that if you don't know how to do this then there's no way to ascertain if your audio output is set up correctly.

Is the mic that comes with Yamaha receivers good enough for this? I'm asking because I read it was calibrated and fine to use.

Forget about that for a minute. Can you get any sound from your PC over HDMI via your receiver?

Set your HDMI output to the default sound device and go watch a Youtube video or play an MP3. If you don't hear sound I'd suggest making sure that your X2000 is actually using the HDMI input, not the RCA inputs on the front.

Frequency response curves at 0°, 45° and 90° angles of incidence. TIA, sorry for the simple question, it's not in Jerry's guide (the only thing that isn't)...

Cheers Jeff
Most pro (and home, if anybody uses them anymore) equalizers are 1/3-octave designs and a lot of venues are, or used to be before the DSP revolution, EQ'd in 1/3-octave bands. That was/is considered sufficient resolution for most venues, and is a compromise between frequency resolution and cost (noise, power, etc.)

Ignore them for REW. Use the high-resolution 90 degree cal file.
