I redid the pro calibration as suggested by Kal with the new firmware. There seems to be more punch even though the individual speaker response is the same. Note the differences in the HF in the raw data after graphs.

Perhaps a better phasing algorithm is now in place or it is a placebo effect.

Like to hear from Kal on this.

Re: Audyssey Pro Installer Kit - Demystified!

Thanks for the tips jmschnur.

I use Dynamic EQ as well but when you say 10db for TV is that a setting for more or less from reference in regards to dynamic EQ? I am wondering if I have TV set at 0db right now will setting DYNEQ at 10db give me more or less? I did look through the Audyssey manual but it confused me on that part.

On the calibration I did a software update on my Onkyo 5508 right before doing the Pro cal. about a week ago. I checked last night and was told I have the latest update. I wonder if the update was only for the 80.2 or the update came out right before I updated my 5508?

Hey Kal, if your around can you comment on when the firmware update was released. I believe I updated my 5508 on 6-5-11 or possibly sooner.

I believe you have the latest firmware that Kal was writing about.

Audyssey recommends 10 for tv and 0 for movies with respect to dynamic EQ.

I too am not sure on what the ref means and the subsequent effects upon bass

I have reasons to believe that the effect is real but I will not comment on why or how until the September issue. It would be great if other users offered their observations and/or measurements.

Re: Audyssey Pro Installer Kit - Demystified!

Hi new to this forum and am interested in the Audyssey pro calibration kit to purchase but cannot find where to get this. It seems some people here had help getting this kit and I would love to find out how. I have an Oknyo PRSC5008 running into a Sunfire TGA7401 (400w x7) with 3x PSB CW800E (L,C,R) and 4x CW260 (surrounds and rears) with 2x Velodyne Optimum 12 subs. The multiXT32 sounds great but I was hoping to extract the best sound here and think a pro calibration would help. I would love to own this myself to tweak to my hearts content. If someone could shoot me a PM on how to get this I would be so grateful!

Do you have the Onkyo 5008 receiver or the 5508 pre-amp? The 5008 is not PRO capable but the 5508 is.

"I strongly recommend that all users of the Integra DHC-80.2, Integra DHC- 80.1, Onkyo PR-SC 5508 and PR-SC5507 install the latest firmware and run MultEQ Pro again. "
