Got A New Toy Today! Onkyo 705

Just finished installing my new Onkyo 705 today and so far I love it. Had no problem with the auto setup and I do like its results better than with out Audyssey enabled. I cant belive how exact the measurements are. I actualy set the level and distances up manually first with my SPL meter and tape measure, than I ran the auto setup and all the speaker distances and levels were dead on to what I came up with. Im amazed. I cant wait till tomorrow when I can run REQ to finish the final tweaking of the system. I'll fill you guys in with later impressions when I get more listening in. So far this realy is a great receiver.

Congrats...

Looking forward to your impressions.

Show us some before and after REW measurements with and without Audyssey if you can. You may want to smooth the response a little.

I set mine up with the Audyssey and if differed from my measurements from my spl meter.
So I went with the spl measurements.
Let us know what you think!

Re: Got A New Toy Today! Onkyo 705

Heres some REW graphs showing what Audyssey is capable of doing with sub's, its pretty amazing. These are the sub only and 80hz crossover.

Before


After


Before and After


Heres some full sweeps with the sub boosted 5 db from what Audyessy came up with. These are all with crossovers set to 80Hz and 1/3 smoothing. Im not sure if my targets are set right because after I saved them they went back to 75db. I know the sub target is right though.

Before and After


Im wondering if I should keep my BFD since Audyessy doing such a good job with the sub.

Re: Got A New Toy Today! Onkyo 705

Im realy thinking about selling My BFD since my receiver is eqing my sub so good. What do you guys think? My sub graph is looking just like it did when I used my BFD to eq the sub the way I liked.

Re: Got A New Toy Today! Onkyo 705

Great graphs, thanks. I did some measurments too, and I had a very similar conclusions regarding the sub output. I also have a BFD but I stll actually use it despite the Audyssey doing such great job. The reason is because I use 2 subs, and both are different desings. The sealed Tumult could use a little more boost below 30hz, so I assigned a couple of filters for that. My other sub is a SVS PB+12/2 this one runs entirelly on the Audyssey's "curve".

Re: Got A New Toy Today! Onkyo 705

Cool thanks for the comparison graphs. That look pretty amazing what the auto eq is doing for the subs. With it that flat I really see no need for the BFD unless you want to tweak things a bit yourself. What are your listening impressions before and after Audessey?
