Yes, its set to small in the app. Problem only on the front speakers, when I set to 60hz, click Done and get back in, it still shows 40hz.

Center and surrounds are fine.

Can you manually adjust it in the setting menu on the AVR?

I haven’t tried out this new firmware yet but with the previous firmware using iOS, I would change my speakers from the Large setting to Small and it would always revert to Small when I would change it back to Large. Though, the crossover frequency would stay put. It will be interesting to see what I get. I will play around with it later tonight.

I did another round of calibration and the front crossover remains unchangeable at 40Hz. I can change the cross over in the AVR, no problem.
Not a serious issue but the app is broken for me now.

Could you share more information on what are the updates for this version?
The changelog in the app store does not detail specifics.
The app is developed by Denon & Marantz, I don't have any visual on their development. With all app development there is bug tracking and fixes with each update, the major feature is the addition of new receiver support.

My avr was already calibrated by the app in the previous version.



If I update the app now, is it enough to simply apply the changes to the avr, or do I need to do a new calibration again?

If you didn't change anything in your setup, then no. The app being updated is just for bug fixes of the app interface, I don't think it's anything regarding the calibration analysis/results etc.

Yep, I just calibrated and I cannot change my fronts. Stuck on 40hz.

My problem in iOS seems to have been fixed. I’ll will run a new calibration in the next couple of days and will report if anything changes.

I can confirm the changing crossover bug exists. It always reverts back to 40.

Strange, I never encounter this issue and I had the last 2 versions of the app. I have'nt updated to the recent one yet.

App and AVR Calibration

Hello.


If I run the Multi EQ app on my Marantz SR5012 and choose not to transfer the new calibration to the AVR will it affect the original calibration that is on the AVR prior to running the Multi EQ app?


Thanks,

No. It will only change once you upload (send) to the AVR from the app. Until then, your AVR Audyssey settings will remain intact.

I ran Audyssey Multi EQ and sent the file to my computer. I would like to post it to get some feedback. It came over as a ".ady" file and I cannot figure out how to open it. Any suggestions on how to open it or to transfer the file in a useable format from my ipad to my computer?

Look into this, I haven't personally used it yet so I can be of little help.

Understanding Audyssey Charts

Hello,

I ran the Audyssey Multi eq editor and being a novice I could use some help in understanding what the app did to my calibration. Below are the center channel and sub woofer charts. Before I upload it to my AVR I would appreciate some feedback. Did it improve the room correction results from the previous AVR calibration?

Thanks,
PG55

1.4.2 still has a broken frequency range slider on my Pixel 3 XL. I opened a ticket about a month ago on the Denon support site that the app sends you to. They replied once then ignored my responses. Not confident they'll ever fix it.

When the app or AVR runs a new calibration your current Audyssey profile is disabled.

The graphs are without Audyssey and the predicted results.

There is an FAQ in my signature.

I meant it as you probably know more about the app than most of the people working on it and if you are reporting a bug then there is a bug.

The customer service and the app developers aren't great. I think it has been clear from the start they had no idea who would be using the app or how they would want to use it. They just got a list of things to do and made an app.

Are you claiming that the MultEQ Editor is the first piece of code written in the manner? Can good programs only be written after years of requirements analysis, testing, etc., perhaps by high-paid consultants?

The available budget for MultEQ was apparently employed to field a working piece of software, instead of a set of PowerPoint slides and some documentation on a SharePoint server. We have both a useful tool and perhaps as important, access to the files from the AVR/AVP. These files allow programs by creative and innovative people, such as Ratbuddy's program. Ratbuddy's program among other features, displays the measurements for each microphone position across the entire frequency range for each speaker. This is really helpful in deciding at which frequencies to apply Audyssey by speaker.

Smartphones have much more processing power, memory and storage than AVR/AVP's. These capabilities provide the potential for much more sophisticated MultEQ versions in the future. Likely the current version of MultEQ is more sophisticated than the equivalent processes in AVR/AVP software.

They can't even get the SSL/TLS certificate sorted for their website.

I am getting the same issue, except my fronts will stay at 90hz. All other speakers I can change to whatever and it will stick. Was only trying to change the fronts to 80hz, so it's not far off, but it's odd some folks are seeing only 40hz for their fronts and I am only seeing 90hz for my fronts.
