It was me who made that recommendation. While I know it is a PITA to remove the unit and change the settings, not doing so may mean that you could have better results with an optimized gain...

The typical AVR with Audyssey can adjust channel trims by +12dB to -12DB. If your starting sub level is too high or too low, Audyssey may not have room to make the necessary correction, given the...

It is confusing to me why your experience is different than others. To make sure I know what I am talking about, I just ran a test. Upon launch, the individual volume sliders are all at Max. I...

The measurements labeled "front" show improvement, but still fall far short of the Antimode with Audyssey off measurement, and are still not that good. While I understand all this tinkering can be...

The 88A has a bypass mode that disables Dirac, if that is what you mean. But in bypass mode, it simply passes the signal. There are not any configurable options like on a 10x10.

I continue to experience dropouts with audio configured on HDMI2. So in this respect, the audio is absolutely "gimped" for me. All I can do is listen to 2-channel audio up-converted to PLII Cinema....

First of all, the subs measured very close to 75dB along with all the other speakers. I wanted to emphasize that Dirac is doing its thing with expected results. HST, I typically add 5dB to the bass...

If you follow the Audyssey thread closely, not all Audyssey users use DEQ. So just because you may be using an 88A now (are you?), it doesn't mean something is "missing" just because it doesn't have...

No. Single-point calibrations have been shown to sound lifeless. Tight mic spacing, on the other hand, can have some benefits, if optimizing for one seat.

Yes, turn Audyssey off and zero out all trims and delays. I use physical distance of the subs to set the delays in my MiniDSP, not the Audyssey-calculated delays. I don't recall whether there was a...

What is the purpose of a single-point measurement? Is this just a test, or would you consider a single-point measurement as a permanent solution?

Another test, of course, is to disable the Antimode and see what Audyssey does on its own. This still doesn't explain why Autimode+Audyssey is worse. I have used PEQ to present Audyssey with less...

Yes, you can increase the trims in the AVR, but best solution is to understand what is going on. I still would present your situation over on the MiniDSP forum before spending $2,500.
