Re: Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!

It is similar to what Dolby Volume does but the Dynamic EQ from Audyssey is not in the same league as what Dolby does, I heard the Auyssey version and was not too impressed, now the Dolby version impresses me every time I listen to it in there post processing, although I love what Audyssey does for EQ'ing of a subwoofer.

The output of the PB13 is impressive though and room gain at the lower end will nearly always come into play except in all but the largest of rooms.

Here are my first full range graphs using Onkyo TX-NR3008 w/ Audyssey XT32, SVS SCS-01 mains, SBS-01 Surrounds, PB13-Ultra. ...
Thanks for the XT32 graphs; the improvement in the 100Hz-300Hz range is really visible, which is what one would expect with the new filter resolution.

Would you, by chance, be upgrading from an earlier Audyssey receiver, and able to provide a comparison of XT32 with an earlier version, all other things being equal?

Thanks,
Bill

Re: Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!

Unfortunately no, I was using a Yamaha HTR-6260, prior to this unit. I've only had the tools for rew for about a year. I have some graphs of some manually tuning I performed. Its amazing how audyssey can do in what took me literally hours of tweaking with the manual eq on the yamaha, a rane pe17 and rew, in only a few minutes and get the response just as flat. The dynamic eq gives it a house curve almost identicle to what my ears liked with the exeption of the boost on the high end. I like what the dynamic eq does with the sub but, I think the high end is too flat with it, I like the highs slightly rolled.

This was about as flat as I was ever able to get it manually with the Yamaha. Audyssey as you can see emasculates me and my toys. I actually feel kind of good about what I was able to accomplish.

Re: Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!

I adjusted my sub gain according to the audyssey calibration which i didn't do before. I checked my mic positioning also. This is my final result with 3 positions. I wish it could get rid of the 250hz suck out but I think that is just the allison effect of having the bookshelfs on stands.

Re: Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!

Ok, here we go. Denon AVR-4311ci. This is straight off the Audyssey auto config after it had me turn my right sub down to equalize it with the left. I identified that as the source of a big null between 40 and 50 hz.

The first graph is Audyssey off vs on. It's kind of strange that it reverses the peaks and valleys in the low end. It makes a huge gain under 30 hz!

Next is Audyssey vs Audyssey Flat. It does indeed flatten the graph out a bit. There's a +3 dB jump at 2k hz with Flat. Bass is unaffected.

Here's what Dynamic EQ does. At this volume level, it's mostly just boosting low frequencies. Since DynEQ is supposed to make the system sound better at low volume, it might be a more dramatic difference at a lower overall level.

Last night I improved my bass response by turning the gain knob back up on my right sub and raising them both to 0 dB in the receiver (Audyssey had them at -8). Tonight I turned the right sub back up to 0 dB and turned the gain knob up a bit as well while leaving the left sub at -8.

There, now that looks better. I'll have to do some listening to see if I prefer it this way or if I'll turn the left sub back up too.

Audussey XT32 / Denon AVR 4311ci / WinXP, Sound Blaster X-Fi

My first REW sweeps. I知 still learning about REW, Audussey and the 4311ci so I値l apologize in advance if I have made any errors.
I知 using the RS 33-4050 as an SPL meter (for now)

I知 very happy with the sound even without Audussy, particulary the sound stage. Audussey definitely improves it.
I do have a couple of RealTrap tri-corners in place on the front wall and I知 just finishing off a couple of home built corner traps.
I値l rerun Audussey and RAW after I get them in place.
I知 a bit concerned with the dip at 83.7 Hz , the peak centered around 6K and the rapid drop off above. The dip at 83.7 may be sub position related. I understand that the RS SPL isn稚 very reliable above 3K.
I do have a couple of Bruel & Kjaer 4007 mic,s with factory calibration data, which I intend to try soon.

Re: Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!

I am also started using REW recently.
To my untrained eyes the dip around 80Hz may be an indication of sub being out of phase. that is assuming it is the crossover point.

Anyone have any graphs of Audyssey MultEQ whom have upgraded to MultEQ-XT? I'm looking to upgrade my AVR/processor and I want audyssey. I get a severe allison effect -20db around 270hz and i have a huge +20db peak at 39hz. I can manually eq some of it with my current equipment but it is just not cutting it. I know that there shouldnt be much difference for the sub between the two eq's but im curious about the surrounds. has anyone noticed an improvement in the sattelite resolution on their graphs or sonically? I'm trying to justify getting a unit with multeq-xt.
I have basic MultEQ vs XT32 if you are interested. only up to 400Hz though
