I doubt it. Like other users, I have measured my response to be very flat. If you want your preamp to color the sound though, it supports custom Audyssey pro curves (using the pro kit) or you can...

Thanks! I didn't realize regular 5.1 DTS-HD MA was always output as 7.1. I know my Onkyo didn't act this way, but it is 6-7 years old. It would be nice if the Marantz manual stated this somewhere....

Even in pure mode, 5.1 is being output as 7.1?!?

Does the stereo image have more envelopment when terminators are used?

I'm guessing I'd have a hard time placing them since I have side and rear speakers in the way of where they would normally go?

This is a neat use of the spectrogram plot. I'm guessing fixing this would improve clarity a little (while the impulse/etc plots helped me improve imaging)?
