Sorry to be misleading. I should have specified that I do not have a 3808.

My comment was on Audyssey in general on my 3608.
I was actually just trying to voice disappointment in that I hoped it would help with my weak bass problems in the listening position but it just made the rest of the frequencies, well....boring.

I would say you described my feelings for Audyssey the first time I ran it, but the latest update appears to have done something to it and it works much better now, at least to me. Now I feel the sound is somewhat dead without Audyssey running, well, at least when I switch it on and off for comparisons.

Great, now that i thought I had everything, you are making me think about upgrading receivers........

Good to know though. Looking forward to the new room, if I ever get out of summer laziness mode and back into construction mode.

Jason and Terzaghi, you do not have to get the upgrade to get the better AudysseyEQ, just do the free update. I haven't done the upgrade and the sound is much better with the new update.


Aha... great to know. I'll get it in the next day or two and try again. (somehow I've missed this despite you having said it at least 15 times) \:\)

Thanks Jason.

Question for the group - when you are calibrating your speakers do you use one of the discs like DVE or AVIA or do you use the pink noise feature on your receivers?

I've used both. Both seem to work equally well. Well, I might actually prefer the AVR because the tone stays on as long as you want it to. On my Avia DVD, it is a fixed length. Should be more than long enough most times though. Sometimes I need the extra as the Dog is clicking his way across the floor upstairs. Well, that or I need to cut his nails more.
