I have yet to even try any version of Audyssey...
What I found if your room needs alotta room correction then XT32 is better than the standard Audyssey but if your room doesn't need much at all then as in my case it was really hard to get it right with XT32 ( I never could get the center channel right at all ) even with multiple tries ,plotting a grid on mic placement to insure that I was using the prime recommended 8 point pattern , using a boom mic stand , doing the cal @ midnite (no background noise) . Just never came out right, changed out the mic twice thinking I had a bad mic . I was having issues with loss of vocal dynamics in the center channel ,loss of over all dynamics in my heights & wides . I was having a feeling that my seamless soundstage was gone . I went back to a manual EQ , setting the EQ settings flat & damn there was that great horn loaded sound & seamless soundstage was returned .Minor tweaking on Db levels & I was good to go ..
Now I'm not saying this will work for everyone in fact for most it will not . My room does not have many problems to begin with & my placement of speakers is very refined for optimal coverage . The room correction just didn't work in my situation .
I feel that it was over-correcting & I was losing depth & clarity.
Do I mean that Audyssey is useless NO .. Just didn't work in my room that's all . How it works for other rooms that a completely different story & a different out come .
That is what I mean by "Audyssey is not ALL it's cracked up to be "
