Thanks. I have a Yamaha RX-A3070 with YPAO. Not sure if that does what the Denon does. Will have to check that out.

You'd need a receiver that uses Audyssey XT32 (Denon and Marantz mid-range units and above).

Just re-ran Aydyssey yesterday and got the following results, if you're interested:

The front left and front right correction is identical. I find that very surprising.

Aside from the notch on my left-hand wall, the front of the room is symmetrical. I guess the notch doesn't make that big of a difference, and my previous result was wonky? It was windy outside that day, so the background noise may have skewed the results.

Understood but the pre-EQ curves are not identical and yet the post-EQ are. If the pre-EQ curves were identical, I could see how the post-EQ would end up being the same. It sounds better with Audyssey engaged, yes? I find with my Audyssey engaged, not only is the bass more defined, I can hear micro-dynamics that are completely veiled otherwise. These micro-dynamics make a huge difference in the definition of images and their relative location on the soundstage. v4 for sure has made a big difference compared to v2 but the room, even though I've pulled a few tricks, still sucks and blows. XT32 is another one of those fancy gimmicks that ought to be worshiped.
