onkyo tx-nr818 as a pre/pro and using audyssey xt32

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
first of all, i don't know whether this needs to be in the official audyssey thread or the official onkyo818, so i thought i'd just create it's own.

anyways, i've recently upgraded to an onkyo tx-nr818 from a 9yr old H/K AVR507LE (which i loved to bits) and unfortunately, i'm not happy with the onkyo's sound. it's been well broken in and i've ran audyssey on it multiple times, i'm just not impressed with what i'm getting out of it.

now, i'm thinking of resurrecting my H/K AVR and just use the onkyo as a pre/pro for it, now my question is, will audyssey still work? will it still be able to correct the audio in the room even though it is not controlling the amplification (or am i wrong to assume that?)

'coz if audyssey is useless in that setup, i might as well just sell it (can't it return it to shop as it's been a few months already)

nope it will still use the audyssey...you just wont be using the internal amplification...that will be done by your new seperate amp

If you haven't already, review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig to ensure you are properly setting up the mic to get the best results from XT32.
