Just a thought, but have you read the entire audessey set-up guide? It's a common link on one of the usual suspects sig. Line here. Can't remember who and I can't look since the iPad app hides that stuff. Also have you red batpigs denon guide? I did and was able to get my setup running pretty much perfect after only a couple tries. My ht sounds better than the "modern" theater down the road, by a long shot. Anyhow you might want to read the aud. Guide it explains alot and has good suggestions and rules that will get you most of the way there.
