I think the best try to compare all main sound managment/callibration softwares in market (use google translate or other tools): http://www.ixbt.com/multimedia/acoustics-correction.shtml
Yep, I just wanted to post it too
That's impossible as I see it. Even if Starfleet Command themselves had designed the Audyssey algorithm and given it miraculous properites for manipulating the signal inside the AVR, once the sound has left the AVR and left the speakers, that nice manipulated sound starts bouncing around the room again. Yes, as you say, the sound post-manipluation as it leaves the speaker is possibly far from flat because it takes account of the room influences when it was first manipulated - but once it leaves the speaker it starts to reflect all over again - the 'Audyssey sound' is now reflecting off the walls and it would need yet further correction which of course it cannot get (maybe if the filters were created and adjusted in real time this would be possible, but I still doubt it). There is also the pesky little business that nobody has ever produced a measurement that shows any correction in the time domain, other than as a by-product of manipulation in the frequency domain.
Great post, Stuart. Agreed all round.
It's a good explanation. I just don't believe it ;)
But as Audyssey is definitely not a single-point correction system, it is still impossible then for Audyssey?
Thanks for that, Igor. I will need to take some time to digest that...
Not sure. It's not something I need worry about, personally ;)
Now that is something that a) I understand and b) I can agree wholeheartedly with! :)
I think you summed it up pretty well there. Look forward to seeing you in the REW thread.
Good bye, and good luck!
I don't see what else one could call a room correction/electronic EQ system that fails to attempt to EQ the bass, the very area where EQ is most needed. It's a great pity because I like Pioneer equipment but could never buy an AVR from them for this reason alone.
That's what they said? Exactly that? "Your sub is too powerful for Audyssey"? Pardon my scepticism.
This has been answered at least once for you (by me) in this thread. It is nothing to be concerned about.
This has also been answered repeatedly. JDSmoothie also explained it to you in a different thread only 2 days ago. They are right. Audyssey does not pick the crossover. Audyssey passes the F3 of the speaker to the AVR and the AVR determines the crossover. An F3 of 40Hz can result in one AVR setting the speakers to Large and the same F3 of 40Hz in a different manufacturer's AVR can result in the unit setting a crossover of 40Hz. It is a decision made by the manufacturer of the AVR not Audyssey. I don't know which FAQ you read, but it wasn't this one:
That is a ludicrous position (not to mention a potential libel) to adopt IMO. If the TVR in your screen name represents the name of the British sports car manufacturer, it is like buying a TVR and then observing that there are no rear seats, the trunk is too small to hold a set of golf clubs, the shift is manual and the exhausts make a loud noise - then complaining that TVR's product 'does not work' and they are close to fraud for selling it to you. Time and again it has been explained what Audyssey does, what it doesn't do and how it works. It is clearly not a good solution for you, just as a TVR is not a good solution for a man with 3 kids, who plays golf and likes an automatic shift. I said this in my last post and I'll repeat it again: Audyssey is not for you. Just live with it and move on.
