Nah. I've been using Yamaha AVRs for years now -- upgraded to an RX-A2010 in January -- but I've never once even tried using their YPAO function. After recently adding an SVS SB12 sub to my setup (and turning my old KSW-12 off), I'm thinking of getting a UMIK-1, and the REW software... but so far, my ears have served me fairly well.
I think a little further clarification about the involved angles (and distances) in my setup is in order.
As I stated, my towers were originally pointed straight at my MLP. In my situation, that meant that the two speakers and my MLP formed an almost perfect equilateral triangle... so the fronts were toed in at a 60-degree angle to the plane of the TV screen.
They are now toed in at a 45-degree angle to the plane of the TV, meaning that in my room, where my MLP is 8.5 feet from the center of the TV screen, my right speaker is aimed at a point that is four feet to the left of my head, and the left speaker is aimed at a point that is four feet to the right of my head.
Again, the resultant broadening of the sound stage -- with no loss of audio clarity whatsoever -- is phenomenal.Edited by B 26354 - 8/16/13 at 4:29pm
