Understood. I know people who feel similarly about video, perferring not to have too large an image because it doesn't quite have the sharpness that a smaller display does. Of course, that's an illusion: i.e., moving closer or enlarging the image doesn't make details less sharp, just makes those details appear bigger. But it still feels like it's not as sharp.

Same with audio. I know people who spread their L/R speakers much less than 60 degrees apart. Sure enough, details that are broader on my set-up are tack sharp on their set-ups. While they love the pin-point imaging of vocals or a piano, it usually sounds unnatural to me (my brain is muttering "hey, who shrank the orchestra").

So, while I understand where you're coming from, allow me to respectfully disagree. A 60 degree spread isn't sub-optimal for imaging, it's just not your preference. The former is objective, the latter subjective. Optimal imaging doesn't mean the smallest images.
Great response! You have prompted me to realize that there is a lot to define about what I look for in imaging, or Image Clarity, and it will be great to hear what others look for who have made it a priority. I think it deserves its own thread. Give me a day or two - gotta get some other things done right now, priorities! - and I will get a thread going, referenced from here. I look forward to the discussion!

Re: Audyssey MultEQ FAQ and Setup Guide Discussion Thread

Jerry, I would like to hear what you get from your option 2, especially for optimizing a single seat. I got good results from option 3 as well.

The reclining seat back is an interesting variation. I have one for my 2-channel listening station. I usually EQ with the back upright for all measurements. When reclined, the frequency response shifts slightly but imaging remains solid.

I look forward to hearing your results.

Re: Audyssey MultEQ FAQ and Setup Guide Discussion Thread

I just want to thank you very much AudiocRaver for your time and effort put in writing this setup guide.
I followed your guide and I got for the second time a real clean Imaging. First time I've got a good Imaging was by mistake, I didn't have enough time to run all 8 positions so I run only 3 or 4 very close together to the main list. position, exactly as you describe in your guide. Thank again, fantastic discovery, I really appreciate it!

Nice summery Jerry, I too feel I've been getting better results using Waynes mic positions too.

That is significantly better Jerry. Are you measuring the sweep through all channels or just the mains + sub?

I often wonder about how we measure the response on our rooms, as Audyssey measures and equalizes each speaker individually and then in most cases we are measuring more speakers together. Perhaps it would be more fair of us to measure only one speaker, or just the mains with the sub, since the mains are typically symmetrically placed... at least I would think so in most dedicated home theater rooms, maybe not so much in odd shaped rooms.

Glad to hear it, Murray. I assume you are using one of the other patterns, because the pattern I used is optimized (at least in my opinion), for the MLP.
