It's not heresy. In fact it is recommended and sensible. The reason is that at no time does Audyssey ever measure the combined response of the subs plus mains, so it cannot get the response around...

IDK if this is relevant or not but I found that my levels were all over the place if I used the individual channel level adjusters (sliders) in any way. Keeping them at max obviated the problem. This...

Audyssey should pull most of that down. If it isn’t, then there is another issue. You may need to optimise speaker/sub locations, experiment with different positions for MLP and so on, assuming you...

I do have a loss of about 4dB. I put it down to the cuts that Dirac Live is making during the filter creation (I believe it favors cuts over boosts for sensible reasons). As you say, it is no big...

It depends how big the peak is. Audyssey has limitations on how much it can boost or reduce frequencies. What do you call a "huge peak"?

The majority of people will not notice any significant difference between balanced and unbalanced. I use unbalanced because it is easier (for me). Others use balanced because, well, they can.

Not really - see above. This is a common enough technique when the character in the scene is not supposed to be able to understand the other person's language, for reasons of the story. If a subtitle...

There is no subtitle there but that is deliberate. Lucy is shown as listening intently to what the Mob Boss is saying, but clearly failing to understand him, which adds menace to the scene as neither...
