If i use the test tones in my UMC200 and my oppo. I get two very different results. Should i use only one as a master setup and let the other one compensate. I would pick the oppo as the master and let the emo-q test compensate. Any better suggestion. The difference between the two is like a 12 db difference. If i set up with emo test tones. When i then go to the oppo, the sub woofer is like 12db higher.

Hope this makes sense.

my oppo 95 has internal test tones. In the speaker set up. i use this internal test to set speaker level with my spl meter.

So the EmoQ calibration sets the sub 12db lower than when you use the test tones from the Oppo? Measured using the SPL meter, held at the same position both times?

Is it all channels or just the sub? If all channels then they probably just use different levels for the tones, 75db vs 85db. If only the sub is different then one is applying the 10db LFE boost to the tone and the other is not.

Took a chance on not starting a new thread, as this one is a bit old. In any case, I have the Emotiva UMC-1 and Oppo BDP-95. I haven't tried the calibration using the Oppo, but I'm still curious...

In your phrase "the 10db LFE boost," do you mean to say it's some sort of EQ standard like the RIAA Phono Curve?

TIA
