  1. [HELP] Poor Man's multiamplification linearization

    REW Forum
    Hi everyone, as a NPO we're experimenting multiamplification with an HT amplifier (Yamaha RX-V663) that provides a "measurement tool" for calibration (the well-known Ypao microphone). Even if we obviously know that it's not the best method to obtain good results, what level of accuracy do you...
  2. YPAO flat result in thin bass

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I know this particular subject have been discussed countless time. General consensus is that since I'm used to hear loudness eq curve so I will feel that flat sounds thin. I kinda accept this explanation. However recently I have compared YPAO result of my A3050 with sennheiser HD 800 (using it's...
  3. Yahama YPAO RX-V series

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have some specific question about using YPAO that their manuals don't cover (which is way too much). They tell one how to connect a composite video up, but little about the EQ settings and how their unconventional EQ GUI works. 1. Do the bass & treble settings have to be on zero, or doesn't...
  4. Using REW with YPAO RSC mic?

    REW Forum
    Hello guys. Does anyone here know of a guide to using the YPAO RSC mic with REW, for tweaking a Yamaha RX-A3040? According to this: simplehomecinema.com/2014/10/...dvanced-topic/, the YPAO RSC mic should be accurate enough, but as I am a total newb to REW, I a missing a step-by-step guide to...
  5. Create REW equalizer setting for Yamaha's YPAO P-EQ

    REW Forum
    Hi! I am currently approximating the 7 band manual P-EQ of my Yamaha RX-A2050 by "eye" and lots of try and error. Would it be possible to create some custom Equalizer setting for REW like miniDSP, nanoAVR, etc so it knows the restrictions and enables the use of automatic response matching...
  6. YPAO - Subwoofer EQ

    Audio Processing
    Does anyone know which Yamaha receivers offer parametric EQ for the subwoofer ? Thanks
  7. Yamaha's YPAO and manual settings

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I am looking at the new Adventage receivers/pre processors from Yamaha. When a speaker system/room has been calibrated using the YPAO measurement on ’flat’, then selecting ‘manual’, to tweak the subwoofer level and Eq using REW and any other adjustments, I cannot be sure that the YPAO...
  8. Subwoofer timing set by YPAO

    REW Forum
    Hey all! I am a new user to REW and I am trying to check the distance settings made by YPAO on Yamaha RX-V677 reciver on my subwoofer, just to make sure it is correct and to learn a few things in the process. I am using REW with HDMI and UMIK-1. So I did three measurements, Left with sub off...
  9. YPAO vs UMIK?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hello, After reading on this forum, I'm about to buy a UMIK-1 mic to measure and calibrate sound. I want to start building my hometheater room and improve the sound by calibrating my gear and also through accoustic treatment. So the need is to have an initial measurement and then apply...
  10. Audyssey XT32 vs. YPAO

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I have landed on the Martin Logan Motion 40s for LR with a Motion 30 Center and FX for Surrounds. I spent about 2 hours yesterday listening to those speakers thru the Denon X5200W, Marantz SR7009, and the Yamaha RX-A3040 and to my ear the Yamaha sounded the most open and true to the demo audio...
  11. Ypao And Ypao R.s.c Difference And Advanced Configuration

    Audio Processing
    Hi guys, I've written a blog article about YPAO and YPAO R.S.C. if you're interested. There isn't a lot of information on the internet or forums about it and some of it is pretty misguided. Please read it, share it and comment if you like. I hope it will add value to those who are considering...
  12. YPAO Mic Cal Files?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi all, I am currently looking into the accuracy of the YPAO mic that came with my RX-V1800 with the general consensus being more or less what I suspected and that is that the mic is most likely not that flat and the amp contains the compensation data in its DSP. Does anyone know if there are...
  13. Using Yamaha YPAO microphone with REW

    REW Forum
    Am a new user of REW. Just tried using the Yamaha AVR YPAO microphone with REW, it seems to work quite well (more sensitive than the laptop built in microphone). However, I notice the freq response from 1khz - 20khz drops off about 15db from the lower ranges (20hz-1khz). Has anyone tried the...
  14. Is YPAO enough?

    Audio Processing
    Hello All and please forgive me if this is in the wrong forum, I can move it if needed. I have the Yamaha RX-V773 that uses YPAO to calibrate the room and set certain parameters for the speakers. I am in the process of building a DIY subwoofer and am looking at amplifiers. My question is this...
  15. YPAO Specs

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    There have been several posts here guessing what YPAO does and does not do on a Yamaha A/V, including that it does not EQ the lower frequencies. Here is what Yamaha told me via email: YPAO calibration equalizes the sound for each individual speaker. The audio is equalized in seven bands. The...
  16. Ypao rsc

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Does anyone here own a Yamaha receiver with the newest YPAO? Can you tell if it does any eq to the sub? Thinking about upgrading my Pioneer Elite, and need at least one reason to justify. :) I have an external sub eq, but you all know we like our toys and tinkering.

  20. Yamaha YPAO set up problem

    System Setup and Connection
    I cannot get the screen up. I have turned the unit RX-V463 on and to TV Viewing with the DTV/Cable on. I have set the subwoofer to less than half. Turned on the TV/Monitor and cable box. Plugged in the YPAO mic. The reveiver reads ENTER TO START and I press enter and nothing happens. What am I...
