This becomes a ridiculous circular argument as Audyssey takes measurements, levels the EQ to the room acoustics and the AVR does with the measurements what it will as it's all a symbiotic relationship between Audyssey and the AVR manufacture based upon previously agreed to parameters. Makes it hard to have a civil conversation if everybody's going split hairs over who scoops the ice cream.
I can reset to original manufacture's settings, run Audyssey and the settings will have changed but folks want me to believe that Audyssey has nothing to do with these changes and it's all the AVR acting independent of Audyssey. If I don't run Audyssey, the AVR factory settings stay the same. I for one, based upon personal experience of seeing first hand, changes Audyssey has made via a feedback loop to the AVR, will not accept the premise that Audyssey is passive. To me that's like saying I have nothing to do with the chlorine content of a pool as it's the quantity of chlorine itself that changes the PPM reading.
The point, in the final, it's hair splitting as in fact, it's an agreed upon, close, personal, intentionally agreed upon symbiotic relationship between the AVR manufacture and Audyssey.
