Audyssey - Integra DTC 9.8 and REW mesurements
i have an old receiver that I am reluctant to upgrade cause there are a few other pieces of equipment I want to buy first. I have gotten around he 1080P limitation by using dual hdmi for video and audio.
I build a IB sub for my room and while trying to equalize it and adjust phase I decided to run Audyssey for the first time. (i know i was just lazy). Anyway I am listening to some music and adjusting the bass response gain and I am thinking to myself. these polk rti12 speakers sound really really good.
Comparatively I have some highly upgraded polk sda 1.2 tl's that sounded like crap. These are fed from a separate stereo preamp with no processing. This doesn't make sense to me.
I decided to get REW up and running and measure my left and right rti12 speaker frequency response using a behringer ecm 8000 mic and a usb mic preamp.
Here is the head scratcher that I cant get around. my REW graph with the mic in the same location look exactly the same with the integra receiver equalizer set to "OFF" "Audyssey" or "manual with all 0 values.
What am i missing here? is this expected. did REW not do anything for the equalizer perhaps?
Is what I am seeing in REW off?
or is my receiver BROKEN.
