It seems that Pionner under the influence of Onkyo has redesigned its MCACC Pro for 2016 series of Receivers. Some features are missing apparently as Auto MCACC with custom features. Only Full Auto MCACC and Manual MCACC remain.
The Guide posted in the Official MCACC thread is therefore no more working.
This is my experience that you will find also in the main thread regarding MCACC.
I have owned several Pioneer AMPs including SC-LX86 and SC-LX79 in the past and now have a Denon X7200W.
I just bought a SC-LX901 for my JAMO D600 7.1.4 System and tried to calibrate MCACC Pro through the guide in the Original Post.
SC-LX901 has MCACC Pro and a new GUI.
During Calibration of MCACC Pro I run through several problems:
My first problem is that there is only Full Auto MCACC and not the previous Auto MCACC with "custom" options so I can keep all my Jamo's D600 to small.
When Full Auto MCACC is performed it finds the Front and Center speakers as Large.
I change in the system Settings - Speakers all speakers to Small and set the crossover to 100.
If I follow the initial thread there is not (at least I have not found it) a way to reperform a proper Full MCACC test with my Speakers as "Small".
Kindly Help me if there is a way to do it.
Then, When i try to calibrate the Reverb through the Expert Manual Menu, in Reverb View I lose the graphs for the frequency response for all my speakesers in "After", which becomes empty. Only the frequency response graphs "before" the calibration appears.
It's a problem because i cannot properly set the default capture delay time in Advanced EQ Setup..
Finaly I have the impression Full Auto MCACC calibration sets Speakers outputs too low as I have a decent volume at -15 only.
My subwoofer (Jamo D600) is set "PER" (personal settings) to -02 with automotic gain at 06.
For information, my Denon X7200W on the same system with Audyssey was much much louder on the same volume level. I know it is irrelevant but any ideas would be very helpful.
Sorry if the issue has been resolved here. I have gone through most of the pages and a lot of sites.
Thank you very much for all your precious help.
