When I activate the genesis corrections and listen to some music, although the room gain remains elevated, the bass level and character sound completely washed-out - like the bass setting is turned completed off.
In the L/R channels I see quite a bit of elevation at 150-300 Hz, which will sound thick / muddy compared to what you are used to. Try setting room gain to 0 dB instead of 6
. If you like more bass, elevate Deep Bass Boost, and watch the curve as you do. Maybe +6 dB or thereabouts would be good to try. Take note of the effect of bass boost center freq, but 50 Hz is a good start.
On the high side, for me, personally, the rather sudden increase of 6 dB above 5 kHz would be something I'd find objectionable, as it adds a brittle or glassy edge. Could try setting max EQ to 16 kHz (not 20 kHz). Then, use the Tilt Level control to add maybe +2 to 3 dB and see if that satisfies the clarity you want. You can have smoothness and brightness at the same time, if you like.
These adjustments are subjectively interactive, so you have hours of listening and adjusting ahead. But once you hear what each adjustment does, you can make decisions on where to go next.
Finally, I do not understand the references to a subwoofer in the specs as I do not have a subwoofer attached....
Note that the report says:
>>Subwoofer Crossover Frequency (or Low-Frequency Extension): 31 Hz
>>Send Bass to Sub (or Low-Frequency Extension Slope): 6th
In your case, ignore 'subwoofer' and read the parenthetical.
