This may not be related to your problem, but because your RF7iis are rated at 101dB @ 2.83V / 1m, more than 10 dB higher than the sensitivity of the typical speaker (approx. 90dB@ 2.83v /1m), I'm...

I've noticed a few complaints that Audyssey makes the sound muffled &/or less dynamic on this and other forums lately.


Muffled. This surprises me. "Muffled," to me, means the treble or...

As far as I can tell, all is well. I agree with Mike and David.

Whether your amplifier has high enough power for speakers rated at 84 dB/1W/1M is another question, the answer to which depends on...

Hi Mike,

Because I am biased, but not necessarily prejudiced, against DEQ, I would prefer a blind comparison of DEQ v.s. sub volume/bass control conditions. The trouble is that there is at least...

I think I know what you mean by droney. I hate that. I like the bass to have snap or boom or highly detailed texture, and not be an amorphous blob. I have probably never heard excellent bass with...

This will be a little serpentine. I think Chris K. once said that (some?) AVR manufacturers were worried about headroom if Audyssey (itself) and the virtual graphic sliders were used together, and...

Sounds good, and for those who want a DEQ-like device for music, I think this would be an improvement over the movie targeted DEQ that exists now. I'm still concerned with the veiling and slight...

It depends on the crossover frequency. In a two-way speaker design (one with a woofer and tweeter only, and no midrange speaker) the crossover is liable to be somewhere between 1,000 Hz and 3,000...

RE: post number 2957

Wheew!

I should have had some coffee before reading that, David.

I still wonder if a continuously variable RLO (kind of like the Centralab or Yamaha two knob loudness...

If, before calibration, you turn up the volume knob on your sub (itself), allowing Audyssey to give you a -11 (but not -12 !!) trim setting on the sub output of the AVR when it calibrates, you can...

And with DEQ off, but Audyssey on, you can probably trade in your 90 Hz dip for a 100 Hz bump by using the bass control. Try it; you may get a kick out of it!

But feel free to turn up the sub after calibration, if you want to, then evaluate the EQ.

Hi Mike,

I'll have to wait, too.

Both my center channel situation and my solution for the "too much bass in the voices" anomaly are different from yours. My center channel is quite large...
