My home-office is 12'x12' and I've had a Yamaha 6.1 + 2x Front Presence[Height] speaker configuration for 3+ years. Depending on the source material,
the DSP/Presence/Height effects can sometimes make a (very positive!) "night and day'' difference; however, as with all post processing
, the results vary wildly with the source material! and can sometimes be truly dreadful. But this is nothing new:
If Audyssey 'Height' or DPLIIz sounds 'bad' in a particular soundtrack, disengage the height processing, and stick to in-horizontal-plane
post processors, e.g., DPLIIx, (or none) for that particular soundtrack...
