They do look great but only if verified by some REW plots..:D
Agreed! They do seem a little fishy no? I do know their only a predicted response but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen any that looked that good.

All the tests I did with rew confirmed that the application works very well.

I got bored and did a quick and dirty REW to see why DEQ -10 is my preferred mode. I level matched the SPL between the two. I wasn’t surprised at the roughly 4db bass boost, but was surprised at the pretty big boost in 9K and above. I have my EQ filter set to 400Hz and below....

20-20k, 1/12 smoothing, DEQ -10 is blue, normal reference is red:

It shows it correctly. This is how deq works.

When I find time I will upload rew vs audyssey

I will give you an example. All tests had the same result. They had the same result either at one point of measurement or at multiple points.

This is what I did in the application.
They are 3 measurements at the same point from the audyssey microphone and verification with rew.
I think the result we see from an application that aims at ease of use and the good result is excellent.

It is very important that the audyssey microphone is not too different from the verification microphone. In my case it is very close. It is also very important to have good speaker placement and speakers with good on axis response. We also want a good off axis response but it is of secondary importance. This will help the room correction system.And of course the philosophy of the app is the ease in combination with the very good results and not the exact target curve in the sense of one db.

I am curious about your the curve you have selected. Generally you see a few different variations of an 8-10 db boost from 20khz to 20hz. Some will do a straight line, some will be a 4-6db boost from 200hz-20hz, flatish until 5-10hz and then another slight roll off and quite a lot of variation in between. Yours is showing a 10db boost from 4K to 100hz. Just curious as to you chosen room curve.

This is what Deq looks like on paper. Might give some insight.

is a test and not a house curve ;)

I recently bought a Denon 4700 as my Sony was dying (I thought). I never used the DEQ equivalent on my Sony as I didn’t think it sounded good. But I’m loving it on the Denon. Love the extra bass and especially the extra juice To my surround speakers. I am all shows and movies so that works for me. anyways surprised how much I like it.

Well, somehow a guy near me was selling the ridiculous RBH 1212NP passive sub with a crown amp for cheap. I can’t wait to do a REW reading when I get the chance!

110lbs of boom!
