Sure it's a valid complaint, but the gripe is with the AVR / pre-pro manufacturer, not with Audyssey on that.What annoyed me was what was happening with the digital inputs actually.
My measurement mic found a 3 inch difference in the FL and FR speakers. The manual implied I'd have the correction my prepro applied neutralized by selecting Pure Direct and that was not the case for digital inputs getting PCM from my disc player. I needed the L and R to be same so when I sent my preamp level signal to an outboard headphone amp or recording device I'd have the two channels in correct phase. Having a button labelled "Pure Direct" which couldn't actually accomplish that with a quick, single button selection for digital inputs was annoying.
As I said in one of my other posts, these companies would do everyone (including themselves due to fewer support calls) a huge favor if they did a better job of documenting how these features actually work and interact with each other.
