Quote:But...but...I was using auto calibration before!
My receiver is a Yamaha RX-V867 and it did get the surrounds and the subwoofer noise levels at a good level but I was "fighting" with the fronts for quite some time. The center would barely have any dialog and then when an action scene comes on, BOOOOOM!
I decided to buy this SPL meter and it showed me just how much changes I had to do. For example, YPAO set my L and R speakers as 0.0 and +1.0 but once I calibrated everything, it was +2.5, and +3.5 respectively. The C was +2.5 compared to -1.0 from before.
I can hear things in songs I never heard before. Almost like I'm hearing everything for the first time.
I do wish I had Audyssey MultEQ XT though. But I kind of swore not to buy anymore AV equipment right now. I spent too much already!
