Try both using the AVR's remote and keep the setting you like the best.
Audyssey sets the levels based on the information it receives when performing its' tests. It uses a 75db test signal.
After Audyssey's room correction many, including me, use a SPL to set the levels to a specific SPL level. I set the volume to my desired volume for measurement purposes, I use standard numbers as my wife doesn't like the "db" level" so I set my volume to 75 and using the SPL I set my levels to 70db and tweak from there.
I use the Marantz "virtualizer" and the surrounds are hotter, louder, than I prefer so I set them at 65db. I also set the sub to 75db and further tweak if I think it is necessary.
Generally once set you are done but you may want to tweak a setting for a specific show, movie, etc. Seems all the providers...cable, disks, etc...have different signal levels, some are louder than others, and you may want to make an adjustment...I may do this for a movie and generally it only relates to the center channel and sub.
The beauty of the app and the avr's system settings is the ease of use and the more you use the easier it gets.
If you are going to do this I suggest you first create a copy of the original Audyssey settings and make adjustments to the copy so you always have the primary to fall back on or to do "A", "B" comparisons.
Good luck and have fun...
