Did my first run already. Seems good so far, with all the new settings has a strong resemblance to REW.

You can check and tune freely to your likings now.

I think it's more coherent through DTSX at the moment.
Spent most of the day trying to run it. B.S. kept getting in the way mic. errors etc. Probably 3/4 hours to run it. Last 2 hours darn good so far.
The new set up really allows full customization along with full REW style graphs views etc.

Through forum browsing. All the issues I was having seem quite common at the moment. If your going more REW extreme or taking to long between measurements the program has a critical error. Mic lost or some B.S.


As for the program it's really comprehensive, you can set all your own parameters. Or just use the N.R.C. conjunction targets built in.
Took me hours to run it!!! Kept resetting. {Using the base targets} {LFE 120Hz, rest of speakers 80Hz} Plus with the sub's at same level of previous version kept getting a turn down sub 3Db. message. Probably turned the gain from a 3rd of where it originally was, now at maybe 45% of total volume from about 60% on the dials

As for the sound it's more balanced and the sub's seem more blended. If possible with the amount of subs Amp. decreased.

Have seen many recommendations to run subs hotter, with lower processor volume for improved impact. {Use the sub. Amp for volume as opposed to your Pre, AVR.} Definitely not scientific or probably researched. I think logical due to the point of a sub and its crossover being to let an AVR have a break and focus on Mid trebles with out maxing power?

Hopefully they get all the bugs sorted soon.

It is much better than any Audessey I ever had. They probably just have a couple hiccups {bugs}to work out and pushed the launch. Even the older version out performed Audessey.
To which the forum I was browsing about the issues. One guy said he contacted Anthem and they told him to wait a little for the bugs to be worked out.

I just ran ARC Genesis for with my Anthem MRX-1120 tonight. Just did the auto mode and not the "professional" mode with all of the options. Zero issues. Was done in about 6-7 minutes.

As good as ARC 2 was, Genesis is even better. I spent the last almost 3 hours just listening to demo material because everything was so much better, particularly Atmos and DTS:X material.

The only thing that I got was the "please turn your sub(s) down by 3dB" message. I just turned my subs down a tiny bit and hit resume and it went on with no issues. No lacking bass from ARC 2, in fact it had a little more punch without being boomy and was smoother with the rest of the audio, whether movie or music.

If tomorrow wasn't Mother's Day, I would mess around with the pro mode and set up a house curve and set it to ignore correcting anything above somewhere around 200-500Hz

Sorry that you are having problems.

Think I just forgot to do the firmware update on the Anthem. Did one earlier today haven't re tried yet. The first day I managed to run through one and seemed better not sure if any thing different with another run. But curiosity did kill the cat. So I ultimately need another run of Genesis.
