Upgraded my 8.9 to a 80.3. I have 2 issues:
#1 I think the answer is no, but in my 9.8 when I rand Audessy, it let me redo a section if I didn't like it. So if I got the the 6th seating position and a dog outside started barking, I could do just that section over. ON the 80.3 I think it makes you start over from the beginning. Any way around this?
#2 After Audessey is set and it saves, it asks me what EQ Cure it should follow. Music or Movie. Doesn't Audessy just set it for what is best automatically? Do I have to select music or movie on the remote each time? When I go to the setup menu it asks me to select "off" "Music" "movie". If I select "off" does that mean Audessy is off? HOw do I know Audessey is being utilized? Is it always being utilized unless I turn the manual EQ on? A bit confused here especially when it comes to the "off" setting on Audessy in the setup menu. I always want Audessy on. To further complicate things, I watch a ton of Blu Rays that are Concert Videos. So I would assume I select "music" and it selects the Audessy music settings even though its a movie?
In short, how to I quickly switch between the music Audyssey setting and the movie one and where is it displayed once I switch so that I know I m listening to the right setting
Thanks in advance for your response
1) You will have to rerun Audyssey. Total silence is the best. I'd also turn off all the lights in the room and any air conditioning, shut the heating vents. Maybe it's a little too extreme but it works for me and needs to be done once. Late, late night when all is asleep is a good time. After the saved calibration, I'd go in to the speaker setup menus and write down all the calibration configurations just in case I lost everything and had to redo the Audyssey setup. It saves time too and 6 positions is good enough. I've heard better details in my movies with 6 positions compared to 8 positions unless you prefer a more spacious surround sound effect I'd stick with 6 positions. And remember; according to Audyssey, Audyssey needs at least 3 positions calibrated in order for it to kick in and work.
2) I've never personally heard of the EQ Cure feature or have I ever encountered it. To check if Audyssey is working, look on your 80.3's front menu. As soon as you turn on your 80.3 the Audyssey label should be visible on the left side of the display in small print showing that it is active whether your listening to music or movies from discs or tape and also when watching shows in digital. Make sure Dynamic EQ is always on too.
I hope this helps you out.
