Hello ThunderStruckCoach; we would like to announce the new Accu EQ calibration feature for our new 2014 receivers. As Audyssey is still widely recognized for many AV receivers- we would simply like to further introduce our new proprietary equalization for our new receivers. There are advantages and disadvantages to any room calibration system. Many calibration systems apply equalization to all channels. This in turn results in your speaking producing an “Equalized Sound” not necessarily the natural sound of your speakers.
The main benefit of AccuEQ is that it does not apply an Equalized effect to Front channels and Subwoofer. This allows the natural sound of your speakers to be heard while taking into consideration things such as room furnishings, speaker distance and speaker type.
We will continue to refine AccEQ as we move forward to make it the best calibration system available.
