You seem focused on using Audyssey as if it's just a basic single-point, parametric or graphic EQ. It is not. Audyssey is a ROOM Correction Algorithm. The standard microphone pattern is intended...

That's all great, and if I had access to all that, I probably wouldn't use Audyssey either. However, none of that makes Audyssey a "toy." IMO, (and I suspect in TH's opinion), Audyssey is a...
