Onkyo TX-NR609: Audyssey speaker calibration & Audyssey Dynamic EQ/Volume
I will be setting up my Onkyo AVR this coming week. I have a choice of the Audyssey Quickstart or 2EQ Full Calibration for measuring/setting speaker positions. I have only two main seating positions, both just off-centre directly in front of tv/centre/fronts, so shall I just go for the Quickstart, especially as I have a Sound Level Meter to check levels at 75dB (as often recommended on this forum)?
And then there is the Audyssey DSX / Dynamic EQ / Dynamic Volume. I know I can experiment with these, but just interested in the forum opinions. I guess I am not in favour of introducing too much processing that might just sound 'different', and where the Dynamic EQ recommends a setting of 0dB for movies and 10dB for tv content, there is no way my other half will even contemplate changing anything on the AVR when I am not around - so is it really worth bothering about?
Dynamic Volume might sound useful for variations in tv programmes / commercials, but will this be at the expense of anything detrimental to the overall sound?
My speakers are the MA Radius 90HD for fronts / rears, 180HD centre, 370HD sub.
Bottom line is, is it worth bothering with Audyssey settings at all, as in some previous AVR reviews from WHF team I seem to recall that they have said they prefer leaving Audyssey turned off after the initial speaker set up has been performed.
Thanks for any feedback.
