    Hi all,
    Pioneer seemed to be the first with their MACC auto setup. I also read that Yamaha are bringing out an amp out with this sort of thing. Not sure if the EzSet by Harmon Kardon on their AVR 507 is the same thing.

    How well this facility is implemented by different manufacturers is yet to be known. It's something I'm very interested in and was decided on the Pioneer 2011/AX3 because of it.
    Anyone know any news of other manufacturers incorporating this, how soon, and if so how good compared to MACC?

    Andy

    Yamaha's system is similar to the Pioneers as it's also an acoustic equaliser. The EzySet on the HK range is only for channel levels etc. As with all things it's a matter of taste, some people like the results it gives, others don't.

    well people dont realy know how to use it.

    you cant expect to setup once and itll be fab.

    i tried the set up mike in differnt locations and did the test about 5 times till i got the best sound.

    then i copied the auto setup to a custom file on the amp and tweek it slightly for best results.
    the sound i get now is awsome compared to the out the box sound.

    in case of the pioneer MACC, its good but it only gets u 2 3rds of the way to getting a great sound. a little tweaking is needed but it does get you close in the first place
