Several dB? Wow. This is such a basic measurement and very easy to get right. 1:0 for Audyssey.

That probably didn't sound very good. Flat in-room is wrong. Living in an anechoic chamber would be an exception :)

No, I'm not ok with those limitations and I do not want to spend more. That's why I don't buy an XMC-1 nor a Yamaha :)

Sorry, I don't buy gear based on "brand promise", I buy gear because it does what I want it to do. Currently there's no AVR/prepro out there that does what I want.

It would just be a massive waste of my time. It's more helpful to explain how EQ should be done and not waste time showing that Emo-Q is useless.

Are you sure the object audio samples themselves are delivered lossless? If I remember correctly the patent application describes techniques that don't seem to be lossless.

The filter was just for illustrative purposes. Just because you could match it within 1dB doesn't mean the PEQ in the Yamaha has the resolution I'm looking for.

Thanks a lot kriktsemaj99! Unfortunately that makes the Yamaha useless to me.

*rant on*
Is it really that hard for manufacturers to include a useful PEQ? Even the UMC-200 does better.

And yet we virtually never see how good a pair of speakers match each other. Consumers would be surprised how large variance can be. Professional reviewers should test this.
