Yeah... the box says PC input.

I got both subs leveled to 75db, but Status shows Failed. lol I Measure again and am at 75db, but still it shows Failed. I'll move on anyway... assuming it is a technical glitch in the program.

EDIT: I clicked Back and then Forward and measured again and it now shows Passed. :huh:

I got it all done, but apparently during dinner the IP address was renewed and I had to start the program over and enter the new IP address so that I can test it On and Off. However, I now cannot get it to communicate. I can't get it to go any further after inputting the correct IP address.

Is manually turning Audyssey on and off via the 5508 menu the same as turning Pro on and off... or does it have to turned on and off with the program?

If you transferred all to flash you should be ok. Good to save as you go along so you do not have to do a full recalibration. The last two things pages of the program are not important.

You should also print out the results so you can assess your system. The left side of each graph is what was measured prior to eq.

You might want to set your ip as static in the onkyo.

I load my saved measurements all the time to try different filters and xovers.

If you turned off the 5508 you disconnected the audyssey pro program. However if you transferred prior to that you have the pro cal in your system.

You can easily check Audyssey on and off in the Onkyo.

OK... that is what I was thinking. I am still having trouble reconnecting, but maybe I can eventually figure it out.

Un plugging the onkyo and then replugging after a minute some time helps. Set the ip to static after you do this.

I am not sure about how to setup the static IP address. Networking has never been an easy thing for me.

Accept what is there write down your address

Save

Probably not a big deal if unplugging. Helped you to reconnect.

Also put your 5508 on pc before reconnecting with your computer.

Remember to save you measurements as you go along.

You can reload them later. To vary settings .

How does the cal you have done sound?

It definitely looks better measurement wise, but not sure on sound yet. I need to do some listening of some of the same material I have been listening too previously. I will also post some graphs later on.

I sometimes have that problem and nothing but an "ALL CLEAR" on my Integra prepro will get me past it, unfortunately, even with a static IP address.

Unplugging and going to pc in the 80.2 and a reboot of computer has worked for me the last two go arounds.

It can be a hassle.

Make sure you try turning Mid-range compensation on and off and compare which sounds better to you, it does make a difference.

I prefer it off and even add a filter in the midrange to reduce the small hump there that I was getting. The verdict is still out though... haven't done enough listening yet.

A power on and off worked.

Is there a way to get past the sub leveling to reload the saved measurements and add filters?

Just plow ahead with arrow at the bottom ignoring the leveling. Next page load your past measurements.

So now after a while what do you of the receiver in your system?

It's growing on me. Sound wise... I still think the 4311 edges it out. I like the slightly less "in your face" sound of the 4311 over the very forward 5508. Audyssey Pro did help considerably with the harsh dialog and seems to have smoothed out the midrange.

I thought the 4311 was more laid back as well. I really did like the 4311 for music but the more forward sound of the 5508 is what hooked me for movies which is my top priority.

Are you going to put the 4311 back in to compare again?

Nah... someone else is enjoying the 4311 now.

I think the 5508 seems somewhat more dynamic... if I am thinking of the right term. It seems like it has a larger sound to it. It is only at times that it seems a bit forward, but most of the time I like how it sounds. Maybe I did not realize I was missing it with the 4311... or perhaps it just grew on me and I got too use to it.

I still haven't listened to much music to make a subjective thought on it right now.
