Is that all? I was hoping that it would actually support 2 separate sub channels that can be individually measured by Audyssey and individually trimmed.All that they are really doing is splitting the output of the .1 into two outputs and adding some gain structure to it. It is really no different than taking a receiver with only one sub output and putting a Y on it for two subs.
I could not find any decisive statement about how Audyssey EQs the subs but:only the level, not EQ.
looks like the. .2 is worth something after all which one is th 876 replacementI could not find any decisive statement about how Audyssey EQs the subs but:
"You can connect the powered subwoofer with each jacksThis clearly indicates that one can use the SVS or Audyssey SubEQ in "dual discrete" mode.
respectively. Level and distance can be set individually
for each output."
Also, from the pages on the Audyssey setup error messages:
"Subwoofer 2 has been detected but Subwoofer 1 hasThis only suggests the possibility that the built-in Audyssey might be EQing them separately.
I do not agree. I think it is likely that the potential licensing income from the tens of thousands of AVRs will be substantially greater than from the sales/licensing of the sub EQs.Audyssey is not only licensing the SubEQ technology to SVS, but also marketing their own pro product. While they may improve the capabilities in the tech they license to Onkyo, it seems just short of impossible that the would cannibalize the sales of an $800-1200 standalone EQ with an $800-1200 AVR.
