You are right, Audyssey DSX would not be needed. Maybe they could come out with an Audyssey Lite, just for EQ. Like Heinz Ketchup or Hellmann's Mayonnaise, there is no substitution for the best, but...

Atmos decodes and sends content to 7.1.4 speakers. Audyssey takes care of equalizing the speakers to the room. Two different tasks. I for one would want both.

Yes, very good explanation! Could you perhaps expand on the word focus. Maybe in terms of volume or balance. It would be great to get a list going describing differences between modes. I can start. I...

There is no set level for me. I usually set it loud but not too loud, in the -20 to -10db range. I have Audyssey Dynamic EQ always on. It seems to work well. I have tried different reference levels,...

I think that it is a global setting. If I set it higher on the cable/sat input it is also higher on the blu ray input. It would be great if each input was independently adjustable.

I have the exact same thing with my X4000. Match 2 subs to 75db and after calibration, the subs are set to -6.5 and -7.0. When I go to the speaker levels, it is very low, however, when you crank up...

Well, it happens fast. One day it worked and the next day it didn't. My January 2010 purchased NR807 died. Waiting for a response from Onkyo. I too am looking at a Denon x4000.
