As for Dyn EQ, it is designed to make things sound like they did in the mixing studio....by increasing bass and surround level based on what volume you listen at compared to reference level (0 on the volume dial). Most people look for this option in a new receiver and prefer it.
Click the link for the Audyssey setup guide in the first post of the thread below to get the most out of your system.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=795421
Primetime, thanks again for all the guidance.
I read through the Audyssey setup guide, followed your advice, and now my system seems to sound much better, cleaner, all the components are more in-sync with one another.
I still have 2 questions;
1. In the Audyssey setup guide, (part VII After Calibration) it mentions the following:
-Raise the speaker crossover settings, if desired.
-Lowering the crossover frequency from the calibrated setting is not recommended. Audyssey will not provide correction to the satellite speakers lower than the frequency it measures as the -3 dB point.
So, when I ran Audyssey, my L+R channel were set to "FullBand", which I raised to 80hz, and my centre channel was set at 120hz. I needed to lower the channel to get to 80hz, but the guide states that is not recommended, and will not provide correction. Should I leave the centre at 120hz, or bring it down to 80hz?
2. If I raise the gain knob on my sub for more impact, would that negatively affect my Audyssey settings? It is currently set at just below the halfway point? Should I simply leave it alone?
Again, any advice is very appreciated.
