Thanks sdurani.

7 band equalizer there's a step back to the 1970's. My Radio shack EQ has more band then that. Guess if I am ever forced to have one of these units I will get a mini DSP

Also noticed that it boosted a dip in the response or at least that is what they showed in the PDF for before and after that could end badly depending on how much it is allowed to boost a dip.

Of Onkyo thinks this is somehow even close to what they had I have lost complete and total Confidence's in there brand.

[QUOTE=sdurani;695037]It's the free room correction that comes on the Cirrus decoder chip:

It will be interesting to see what they will block access to or allow us access to.

Looks like they're using the free room correction even on their more expensive ($1,200) models:

Bad idea.

From the description, the room correction software sounds messed up. It reads like subs are not EQ'd which is really messed up.

I can't find any reviews on AccuEQ so out of curiosity, I'm looking forward to reviews on Onkyo's room correction software.

Im curious as well. Seems like at least one step backward. Room correction can only go so far, and in my case that's a long way, but it seems like they've learned nothing from their years with audyssey.

Well you went from 100+ adjustments to 7 I am sure there will be no loss in sound quality right? Kind of like ripping the crossover out of your speakers and replacing it with a single cap sounds like a great idea for sure...

I remember boom boxes from the 80's having a seven band EQ maybe Onkyo can just sell us a boom box and call it a there new high end system.

If Onkyo is reading this my current unit will be my last. People pay for improvements not a step back 30 years to help your bottom line.

If I wanted a seven band EQ I would of grabbed one from Radio Shack not spend thousands of dollars for it when everyone else you compete with now has better because your bottom line was more important them your customers who have put up with countless HDMI issue and other issues and have stuck with you just for you to do this.

Have I missed anything?

This is not the AccuEQ at all. This is an old version they don't use anymore.
