Changed my setup a little. Here are some new plots. Note that I use the Dirac house curve that tilts the low end up 2 dB and high-end down a 2 dB. I just like the way it sounds with the default Dirac house curve. I really just can't get over how that there is almost no ringing at 40dB down at 30 Hz and below (compare old blue and yellow waterfall plots to purple ones). Sounds absolutely incredible, best bass I have ever heard and less than 1% total THD as measured by REW and a MiniDSP calibrated USB mic.
So I have a pair of RF-42ii and a Dayton 1200 sub for my TV. I've been having huge trouble with receivers and have gone through 4 different ones until I finally ended up getting the Denon X2000. This may sound crazy but with the cheaper receiver I had - AVR E200 and AVR E300 on these same towers the sound was a lot more "open" and seemed to "surround me" this was most noticeable when listening to music. It was just more enjoyable listening to music. I don't know what the reason for this could be but right now it feels like when I listen to music as if someone has put a barrier in between the speakers and my ears. It's hard to explain the difference but it's a significant difference. Could this be down to EQ? I played around with the EQ and it did make it sound a little bit more "open" but it still doesn't get anywhere close to how it felt when listening with the E200/E300. E200 doesn't have audyysey mic, but E300 does. I used it for E300 and it sounded great. Question is less of which receiver is better quality but more of how do I get that same "room-filling" experience. I hope its simply down to room eq. Thanks a ton
