My old Onkyo only allowed 3 positions for Audyssey setup, this Denon allows for 8. I was misunderstanding that and calculating after 3....furthermore, I've found that I've misunderstood Audyssey and the mic positions all together, and have been greatly helped by some diagrams I've found. That has made all the difference in the world. The problems with the sub are gone - and when switching to 2 channel, the small complaint I had about the low end of the Primes is dealt with as well! I really now have no complaints at all about the Primes. In fact, I told my wife tonight that I was going to finally break the boxes down that have been stacked in the garage as I was sure I was keeping them. Just wanted to share that because of my comment on the low frequencies before.
Welcome to this Hobby
This is your worst enemy
Your quote " I've had a lot of variables I've been trying to deal with"
Once you deal with it, then move forward as Not much better, but a little.
( you spend double and get a 5% return at best, depending where your are in the food chain).
I will be VERY honest here!!!
I got One Hobby and this this it
So, I spend lots of money on it.
Your biggest thing is your room first, and half descent speakers and equipment second.
So if you have decent equipment and Do the right thing in your room, then your are OK
Then you can move on like cars or other hobby, depending of what you like!
