Audyssey vs the rest
« on: March 28, 2019, 18:00 »
Chanced upon this 2017 article. Good read on different EQ available on the market and their strengths.

https://hometheaterreview.com/room-correction-revisited/

Most advanced EQ goes to Trinnov ;D, but caveat is always the calibrator must know what to do and how to do it -
"Trinnov works not only in the frequency and time domains, but in the spatial domain, as well."

Next thing I’ll be interested is the PRICE of Trinnov. Wow!!!

While we all can’t have a perfect room correction in our system, we can certainly improve upon what ever room correction the we are stuck with.
I my case it’s Audyssey, for the past 10 years it has grown into the XT32.
With a persuasion from a friend I invested in some REW mic and a Minidsp 2x4.
Thro this into the equation and we in altogether a different level of room correction for the better.
This takes some steep learning curve but it worth every penny.

Fully agree, minidsp is a very worthy investment on our system.

I've to agree. It's always good to have an EQ device to counter some frequencies in response to the room. Some frequencies reacts too overwhelming, thus become too 'annoying', that's where device like minidsp can help, using PEQ to lower according to taste.

No mention of room perfect or JBL’s Arcos system, both highly rated and I’d believe the room perfect is definitely up there as the best room EQ software, mostly for its ease of use. This guarantee will come from me personally having experienced its capabilities and reverse engineer finding out what’s best with this RP

Trinnov maybe good, but the complexities and  amount of time required to correctly bring out the best remains to be seen

Even mark seaton himself took one whole day to dial in his seatons subs using the trinnov. one would definitely need to factor in calibrators cost when considering the trinnov, that can easily hit $30k and not forgetting that if u shift house again, another calibrators cost is involved . Calibrators cost easily in the range of $5-$7k







See the excerpts of conversation extracted from avs forum. These guys are pros and another is a distributor for trinnov and lyngdorf

What the RP and Arcos does that none of the above does is blending of subwoofers with All the speakers in the amplitude and time domain...
