The very odd but necessary speaker placent in our living area Audysessy has yielded mostly useless data numerous times. Now that I have retired my older Denon AVR with a new model I do have a question. If I ran Audyssey then corrected the incorrect data would the Audysessy software adapt to the changes? I am being told that I'm giving up several important audio benefits by not utilizing Dyn EQ & Dyn.

Your thoughts please.

Denon installer here. Speaker size should almost always be set as small. Distances are NOT the literal distance. 99% of the time Audyssy works right.

Respectfully, I guess I'm in that 1%. Due to the room layout from hell the right surround speaker is placed around a corner thus giving Audyssy fits. Believe me when I tell you I wish there was a better way to arrange the speakers. Much time, tech's and money has been thrown at this problem.

Thanks for your comments.

My tower fronts are set to large. Center and surrounds set to small. Frequency at 80hz. Audio, including sub is great.

Due to your room layout perhaps a sound bar would be more suitable.

I've seriously considered one but I understand most good ones require side reflecting walls. Maybe I should do moe in depth research.

You're correct. Surround bars (not sound bars, those only offer 2 channels), use the side walls to reflect audio back to the listeners. In addition, the sweet spot is incredibly small with surround bars.

Even though the setup is to say the least different, the quality sound produced by our full size speaker system impresses us and guests alike. During lunch today as soon as I got the phrase sound bar out of my mouth wifey nixed the idea in the bud. The ideal solution is a to move our current AV stuff up stairs to an existing large empty rectangular room. Maybe one day (will never happen). :
:rolleyes:
