I don't know enough about room correction software to know if "32x the filter resolution" is semantically equivalent to "32x the number of filters".
All I know is that it's probably easier to flatten out the frequency response when you have 512 control points to work with rather than 16. As for XT w/Pro vs. XT32 non-Pro; I just want a flat response. As far as I know, Pro just gives the user control of the transfer function, it doesn't magically give you a flatter response.
It seems like the appeal of Audyssey Pro is if you want to color the frequency response to your liking ("bright", "warm", etc), which I can understand for some people. Personally, I'll just trust the recording engineer and shoot for the flattest response I can get.
