I know it's not SUPPOSED to add reverb, but that's what I'm hearing. And nothing I've seen explains the bizarrely delayed drum hits in the surrounds.

Ken, have you tried unplugging everything and just sing to yourself?




I hope you have a good repertoire?

Every now and them I run it again on my Denon just out of curiosity. I do my best to let my ears adjust for a few days but I always end up turning it off. I just can't seem to get it to not sound flat and lifeless no matter how I run it or how I tweak it.

I know, not helpful but sometimes it's helpful to know that you are not the only one.

Now that's what I call an inside joke.

It occurs to me that I was sitting in a less than optimal position when I was listening without Audyssey on and got the weird delay thing. Maybe that's just what happens when you're outside the circle of the speakers. Just never heard it before. Will have to try it in a more optimal position.

sometimes when it does not seem to work well, it can be as simple a thing as a leather couch (used at the LP) that reflects sound towards the nearby microphone; or a seatback that's higher than the ears at the listening position. those things, and others, can easily fool Audyssey.

also, Audyssey will not work well with an acoustically bad room or it will not make good speakers out of bad ones, or speakers that have not been well positioned.

My room is... less than ideal. It's my living room and I've got 3 kids, age 5 and down.

But at least it's not square.
