Well, I just bought a Denon 3805, not the Yamaha, BUT my buddy has the 1400 and we played with his set for a lil while before, In my opinion (keyword .. mine, remember a lot of these things are subjective) the YPAO did an outstanding job of setting up his sound and level parameters.

So, have I changed my opinion, No, I may just get a Yammy from the local Tweeter and try it to see how it sounds with my speakers and check out the YPAO.

I used it in the beggining but ended up doing everything manually. I like the way I set it up way better. Just the PEQ vs GEQ makes a huge difference in sound.

Set it up with YPAO and then start experimenting. You'll do plenty of that!

Jose, definitely use YPAO. I'd suggest setting it to skip the speaker size and crossover frequency adjustments and instead manually setting those to the THX recommendation of all speakers "small" and a 80Hz crossover. Another point I've found is that it may give better results(although this might not apply to your listening room)to set the equalization to give preference in adjustments to the "low" area, rather than "flat", which tends to use its limited equalization assets over the entire frequency range equally.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

The threats that real80sman lists are the ones I was reffering too.

Thanks for all of your suggestions.

Cool - no threats. You said that "you read somewhere" - I just refreshed your memory as to where you read it.

I have absolutely no experience with ypao (or the like) as I am a 2.1ch guy. So I can neither condemn or endorse such features.

In the future, I am looking to upgrade to a 6.1 system and for movies, it may prove usefull. Actually, it would be fun to play around with the settings and see (hear) how things change.

For music though, I am a firm beleiver of "true direct". Bypass as much switching, tone controls, and gagetry as possible.
