I've been using a Yamaha RX Z11 for about 8 years, or so (HDMI 1.2 vintage), with work-arounds like 2-output HDMI Blu Ray players. Been waiting for the new Codecs and latest HDMI specs (including HDR) to settle in so that I can go for another long run with a high end AVR. Seems to be about that time. Amazing what has happened with the price of ordinary people's high end AVR's. Half of what I paid 8 years, ago. I wonder if it's Class D amps and/or Moore's Law that can account for that?
Anyway, my question. The new Yamaha Adventage A 3050 has a feature called "reflected sound control" in it's EQ system which is advertised to compensate for the side reflection component of the arriving sound field at the listening position. This would be an important feature for me as I have moved from a suburban house with a dedicated rectangular HT to a downtown Condo where the viewing area is completely open on the right side. I have the speakers in for Dolby Atmos and DTS X, awaiting a new AVR with those Codecs. Does anyone have any idea if this YPAO feature is effective in my situation, and if any of the Audyssy EQ systems do the same thing?
