If all of the female animals at a zoological park got neutered, would it be considered a she-it zoo?

I dunno. But if they were Islamic and it was a madhouse, it might be a Shiite Zoo.

This week I've learned what NOT to do when selling on Craigs List. I'm trying to sell my old Sofa and Love seat for $200. (Orig $2500, but had a recliner). About 18 years old. The price seems good, but the 1st 6 callers have all been no-shows.

What not to do is try doing this during the week. I think week end selling could be more successful.

Sold the living room furniture and bought a Lazy Boy Lancer love seat with center console to be delivered Tuesday.

With the living room empty, I decided to mess around with audyssey on my Dedon 3312. I used the 6 position with my computer chair in middle of room as seating position. With audyssey on, I have excellent high end, but the low end suffers. With audyssey off, I have good low end, but the high end suffers. Tried different crossover points, but not getting any improvements that way.

Audyssey set all the speakers to around -7. I changed SW to -4 and that helped a little. I never had this problem with Pioneers MCACC, it always had a good well balanced sound. I see where Audyssey has a manual equalizer option, but all I've been able to find is a way to turn it in or off. Maybe that function is available via computer only, I don't know.

I'm regretting that I bought a Denon.

I'm going to try calibrating audyssey with the mic in the same listening position for all 6 times, and see what happens.

That didn't work, but I found that just doing the first mic calibration from a central position, like you do with MCACC, then exiting straight to calculation and save is producing good results, so far.

Been testing with Adelle. Her voice is difficult to get right.

Other settings.
Mains small.
Crossover mains 80, M22,. Center 40. Vp160.
Audyssey flat.
Dynamic volume off.

Intesting...I have a Pioneer and a Denon and much prefer the Denon, I find the Audyssey much better for equalizing the whole room than the MCACC. How are you running all those front speakers? Maybe it is affecting the room correction somehow?

Working fine now that I only calibrate with 1 mic position. When I use all 6 positions, I lose all my bass and the highs are too bright. One thing I read is to put the mic positions closer together because this can happen when the outer mic positions go outside of your best tweeter range. Although I wasn't out by much, it might of affected it. So there again the single position seems best overall. This is the same that MCACC uses. Sound's much better this way. It is a little bass heavy, but in a good way, but I prefer that to no bass.

My mains are probably too close together for the Audyssey 6 mic position calibration. Pic on next page.
