I've had very good results from Audyssey on my Denon AVR-891 that set up my two M22s that are perched on their own Velo 10" subs, a Sony Center Speaker & two QS4 surrounds. I find that the sound in my oddly shaped room is most satisfying.

Audyssey found that my subs were set at way too high volume levels that I corrected by turning them down by almost in half. Furthermore, it found that the QS4s were indeed 'out of phase' because of my dyslexia in reading wall mount Axiom's instructions, ha!! After these corrections, all is well.

Audyssey works very nicely for both HT & audio in my room. Overall, I really like it...

Actually, Charles, this guy just had his wisdom teeth out and can't stand the indescribable pain that comes afterwards...

Ken, regardless of what you're hearing, Audyssey has no capacity to add reverb. Even DPLII and the other ambience extraction modes(e.g., Neo:6, Logic 7)don't "add" reverb, but just send what's already mixed into the front channels to the surrounds. Keep experimenting, you'll get it.

One point I'll mention is that the microphone positions aren't supposed to be spread around the room, but are to be clustered around the listening position. Mine are 1-2' apart.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

Now I'm sure I did something wrong. I was watching racing and noticed that the engine noise was extraordinarily loud. Figured it had something to do with Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ, and lo and behold it did. I turned off the Movie calibration, too, for the heck of it, and all of the sudden, the commentators voices sounded much fuller, and the engine noise was less overpowering. Audyssey on, thin voices. Dynamic Volume on, loud engines. Any of it on, the volume level went way up.

Ah well, will try again one of these days when there's no one around.

I messed around with mine last night using the same cd I did the other day when I experienced a surround channel reverb effect.

What I noticed:
1) It WAS in a movie mode.
2) The track that I noticed the "reverb" in was a remix that had some "echo" effect in the stereo mix.

Take a 2 channel recording, add a dash of movie mode, and a pinch (or two) of a simulated 7.1 playback, bake for 5 minutes, and you get some strange echo.

I played the track in 2.1 mode and it sounded great.
