"Audyssey is launching a new PC-based software package working with Denon/Marantz AVRs that incorporates Audyssey technology"-Possibly gonna compete against Dirac???

I watched that video, while it would be nice toy for me, I do not feel it could do better than the App as I have seen no evidence it could do so. Since the license if not transferable, I will not be purchasing the license until my next AVR or AVP upgrade for sure.

By the way, I recently moved my couch and felt the bass off a little when was too busy to re-run Audyssey until two days ago. So I took a little time to do it and then use the App/Rat to tweak for about an hours.

The results this time are not as good as my last run/tweak that gave me less than +/- 1 dB 20 to 130 Hz vs this time's +/- 2 dB (20-300 Hz though), but last time I spent many hours to get there.

So I would say if one is happy to tweak the results only to the apparent diminishing point of return, that is, +/- 2 to 2.5 dB, it would likely only take 1 to 2 trial using Rat.

I played with Dirac Live's 2 channel trial version about two years ago and like its UI, but there was no way for it to get better results than XT32, except it did do slightly better based on the impulse response.

Here's the results after just two trial with the App/Rat, the whole process should take less than an hour to do for the front left and right channels:

That sounds very promising. Does anyone know if that PC based software will only work with newer AVR’s or what the cut off models are? I have a AV7702mkII and it’s the cut off for the Marantz app. I would love to use the app again, even in PC form. Thank you for any info.

My understanding is all units that can use the current app can use the new one....

I did attend the webinar, HD is correct, that all models compatible with the Editor App will be compatible with the PC based Audyssey MultEQ X.

Audyssey MultEQ Editor app - Apps on Google Play

You can check it out on the websites linked above and click on "Read More" to see all the compatible models.

Interesting to see if you can use other operating systems or even calibrated mics/files down the line. They say much about those?

Yes, they said they would work on the use of other mics. Then again, the cheap looking Audyssey mic is supposedly calibrated for the specific job and based on my experience (having plotted numerous graphs) using the popular Umik-1 and similar mics such as the Omninic is not going to gain anything imo.

Possibly not, altho could well be a more accurate calibration file than the audyssey mics....depending. If you already had such a mic of your own on hand it would be nice to simply use it.....

Damn……! Shafted again……Well I guess I’m just sticking to the ole’ trusty tape measure and decibel meter. Crawling around the room, although less these days, is also fun too. Ha!!

For Rat users, below are the entries for the FR and Sub channels, also about 5 entries for the Left channel.
