Audyssey’s room calibration system usually does a pretty good job of extracting the best performance from your sound system. For most people the results are more than adequate. However, for the hard core home theater enthusiast there’s always a couple things here and there that they wish they could tweak. Thanks to Denon, Marantz and Audyssey you now can.


Denon and Marantz have launched a new Audyssey MultiEQ app that will give you complete control over your listening experience. During the normal calibration process Audyssey detects the size, type and configuration of the speakers you’re using. It also measures the response of the speakers in your room and makes adjustments accordingly.


With the new MultiEQ app you can check the exact settings that Audyssey prescribes. If you don’t like them, you can change them. Not only can you adjust the EQ settings, but you can also change the target curve for each channel pair, view before and after results of the Audyssey calibration to identify potential room problems, and enable/disable midrange compensation to make the sound brighter or smoother.


Chris Kyriakakis, Chief Technology Officer, Audyssey Laboratories, Inc., states: “The Audyssey MultEQ Editor app enables users to enjoy reference sound that is free of room acoustics problems and also apply their own listening preferences. We are very pleased to be working closely with Denon and Marantz to deliver this unique capability for fine tuning these AV Receivers.”


The app currently works with only a select grouping of Denon and Marantz AV receivers. Supporting Denon amps include the AVR-X6300H, AVR-X4300H, AVR-X3300W, AVR-X2300W, AVR-X1300W, AVR-S930H, AVR-S730H, AVR-S920W and AVR-S720W. Supporting Marantz models include the AV7703, SR7011, SR6011, SR5011 and NR1607. According to both Marantz and Denon, some of their new AV offerings for 2017 will also support the app. Older receivers not on this list most likely won’t.


The MultiEQ app is available on the iTunes and Google Play stores for a price of $20.
