I added another 6 readings to my already 100% calibration on the 1120 and it actually produced some definite, subtle, but perceptible improvements to both vocals and general clarity so it seems to me that RP does actually process readings made after the magical 100% - and make suitable amendments to the DSP profile if it hears something different?
This is unfortunately nothing more than a placebo effect. The filters are no longer adjusted or augmented past 100%, the difference between mid 90's and 100% isn't going to be audible and if it was you'd be listening in a very good room, from the perspective of someone mixing a a record or movie over time.
I've got up and walked away from tuning instruments, recording and mixing because my brain would simply not work and then be fine as little as 20 mins later.
It does seem odd that the Lyngdorf OS enables extra readings then even though it is at 100% - you would think that if the new readings are just thrown away they would disable that menu function?
I have taken 2 complete calibrations in the past and not altered any settings, measurements or MLP and I have tried to repeat the random locations as near as possible on both runs - they came out with totally different sound signatures so maybe it is not as "perfect" as you might like to believe.
Thank you for sharing your experience. I think you can look at opinion of Rock Danger with grain of salt as he is from “pro audio word”.and never believe his ears, only measurements.
My respects to your knowledge and experience (without irony).
I just want to point you that each time somebody share their own experience you give hundreds of theoretic arguments agains. Our hobby full of “esoteric” thing which can not be measured for the moment. Each of us has our own setup and yeas and it is normal. If you cannot explain something it does not mean that it is not exist, but probably we do not know somthing.
Ooooooops - I seem to have started something here!
I did have a balanced response ready in my head but when I came to post it and saw all the responses I decided not to go there.
I can only reiterate that I tried some extra readings over and above the 100% and fully expected either no change or a worse result which was why I always do a backup before changing ANYTHING. I was pleasantly surprised with the result which I perceived to be an improvement. If it is actually a placebo effect then who cares - at least it made me happy.
Is this the 8 page PDF bundled in with 4.0.0 firmware perhaps?Owners manual refers to the following document but I cant seem to find it:
"In a separate document, called Speakers and Bass Management"
Anyone have a link? Thanks...
No mention is made of crossovers for the additional outputs, so presumably you'd need to use an outboard one, which only requires a single input.
I just read it as it copying the L+R inc crossovers (if used) to 2 additional outputs - which is 4 outs and the speaker's crossover deals with it passively as normal - you're just doubling up on power.
Yes, that's how I read it too.
But the additional power comes from additional power amps, two of which can be driven by using a cheap Y cable on one processor output channel.
I'm not sure in this particular case. I know you can run into all kinds of problems doing this with live sound, signal loss to ground loops.
