Better Without Audyssey?

Recommended Posts

I reset my Marantz late last night.

Too late to run the Audyssey Program.

Gee, I think my speakers sound better without this.

I have a mixture of soft & hard surfaces in the room

so it seems to be OK as far as I'm concerned.

Without the Audyssey, the highs and bass are much cleaner.

I also think the dynamics are better.

I'm using no tone controls at all.

These 5 speakers are Rocking Baby.

Since going active 3-way i've stopped using Audyssey. But I'm also only running stereo at this point and my subs are integrated as part of each full range speaker. I tried running Audyssey to further refine things after I spent a bunch of time with REW and my Yamaha processor, but Audyssey never could get off the ground during the speaker check phase, so I just abandoned it.

I don’t even know what Audyssey is. I use the pink noise generator in my receiver and an analog SPL meter. I love how it sounds.

Exactly. Does Audessy know how old you are and how shot your hearing is? Does Audessy know how you like to hear certain types of music?

I appreciate the effort that goes into something like this but it's a benchmark.....not the icing on the cake.

Never have considered that. May get you close, but no cigar.

 

We may have to wait until AI catches up with our hearing.
