I am interested in which people use and why. Personally, I cannot tell the difference between the two.

I've always preferred flat with my Denon 3808, in a small, but fully treated room with the acoustic properties (based on volume settings) of a room with 3-4 times the volume of air). I believe I read that standard Audyssey, for XT at least, rolls off the upper frequencies at a point, which some find objectionable. I just thought flat sounded a bit better, subjectively, switching between the two one and left it.

I simply cannot hear any difference
I do too and just measured xt32 both versions. They are almost the same curve. And it didn't eq my subwoofer all that great. Very disappointed with audyssey. Created a few big dips that weren't in the raw measurement.Quote:
