I understand you like how Audussey does the system and in your position I would feel the same. I was interested in seeing the REW info for a before and after automated correction data point.

I just want to see the graphs, was not trying to suggest you scrap Audussey and run a manual system set up. Sorry if my post was not clear on that point.

I have a friend with a newer Integra unit so will try to get over to his place this weekend to run sweeps. If I find anything interesting I will post the results.

I think I understand what you want to see from the curves. I know I definitely hear a difference when Audyssey is engaged and the adjustment is done. Since I would use my RS meter as the mike and AVS suggests it is not very good above 3khz I am not sure any value would be gained by looking at my curves.

We are on the same page. I want to see before and after curves to see the problems that might exist then how the correction handles everything.

If REW lists your RS meter in its mic list it might be worth playing with a bit. I doubt there is much going on above 3k. I am not sure about this but what about using the set up mic for your AVR?

I thought about the setup mike but it would need a calibration file for REW. My original 990 setup mike was lost for 4 years but recently reappeared and is really geared to the 990s sensors. The Audyssey mike that came with my Onkyo uses a funky werbling sound for the setup and I don't know if it could be calibrated to REW specs. The RS meter is in REW but has its downsides. REW really wants us to use a specific calibrated mike.

They were doing loudness compensation, whether they realized it or not, boosting the parts of the spectrum (bass & treble) that fell off quickest when the volume was lowered to moderate listening levels.
