MultEQ editor app
« on: April 15, 2019, 01:46:56 PM »
Wasn't quite sure if this is the right spot for this but putting it here.  If you use the MultEQ editor app on iOS or Android with your Denon or Marantz receiver there is an update out today that gets rid of the 20Hz rolloff on the sub channels.  There was speculation it would be switchable like the mid-range compensation dip, but instead they just completely got rid of the rolloff altogether so the sub curve is just like the ones in the AVR's now.

I don't know what took me so long, but I just started using the MultEQ Editor with my X8500. I can't seem to find answers to a couple of questions.

1 - I have used Custom Amp Assign when using Audyssey on the X8500 itself to turn off the internal amps for use with my Parasound amp. The app recognized that I'm using 13 channels and the speaker configuration. Does it remember the previous amp assign settings ?

2 - What's the current consensus whether to use Mid Range Compensation ? Didn't have that choice in the receiver.

3 - Same question with limiting filter response to 500Hz - saw that in a video that was recommended.

4 - Any other tips using the app ? Thanks in advance.

1.  Yes, in fact the AMP ASSIGN must be set using the AVR's on board setting.   The app simply allows for individual speaker selection based on the AMP ASSIGN setting.
2.  Personal preference, but if limited the EQ to 500Hz and lower (as some do), then it's a moot point.
3.  Personal preference; however, majority of EQ occurs below 500Hz.

Recently, I've been using the MultEQ editor app in conjunction with the DeRemote app, to try different calibration settings. On the DeRemote app you can switch between Audyssey, Flat or Off in nearly an instant. And of course in the MultEQ editor app it's super fast to modify filter response / MRC etc. and upload it. Being able to compare different settings nearly on the fly is great. 

Sat on the couch last night and really got my sound dialed in over a small glass of single malt - I'm loving the power and convenience of these apps !

Yes, due to the APP, I am pleased with the performance of my Marantz prepro.

My experimentation using this app continues. Last night I tried limiting the EQ to 500Hz on all speakers, except my center channel speaker. I have a beast of a center channel speaker, and it definitely sounds better with no Audyssey correction at all ( arrived at from previous experiments with this app ). Anyway, very interesting to hear the difference - but I thought limiting EQ to 500Hz on all speakers sounded " brighter ", louder on the treble end and a bit more harsh watching battle scenes in " The Pacific " series. I don't think my wife would like that at all. I then tried just turning off MRC on all speakers. I think I will run with that for a while and see how I like it. It sounds maybe a bit better to me. Still loving the ability to make copies, change things up on a copy anytime - even while sipping my morning coffee, then trying out different settings when in the theater. I wish I hadn't waited so long to start using this app !

Good afternoon fellas,

I have a 6700 and run the multieq.  I have 2 subs in front (equidistant from MLP) with a splitter and one sub in back.

If I wanted to compare sounds between the fronts and the back, what would be the easiest way to accomplish this?

Just run the full audyssey twice, once with the ones in front hooked up and then disconnect and plug in the rear and save both profiles and compare?

or is there a way to set up a profile with sub two only?

Thank you.

I think you would need to run Audyssey twice.

I though so also.

Thanks Craig, 
I'll give it a shot tonight.
