    Hi Ross,

    The roll off is the same in all products.  We have ongoing R&D to figure out how to customize this for each room, but the benefit of that would be incremental.

    Any suggestions/guidelines, Chris, for target curve editing to tweak for a room/system that seems to need just a little more (or less) on the high end than the default?

    You need to use multiple points to create a gentle shelf up

    I have  a challenging situation (denon 4311 with your pro kit and it's tuned).  Room sounds wonderful..huge diference with/without audyssey.  The problem is that my wife  has trouble hearing dialog when watching HBO and some other 5:1 movies.  This is, as far as I can tell, due to poor mixing of the balance between music/background noise and dialog in 5:1 mode....the dialog is even clearer to me in stereo mode.  All speakers, by the way, are NHT and are from the same family so there is nothing strange between speaker design or sensitivity.  One clue is that my wife hears the dialog much better on our bedroom TV which only uses the speakers built into the TV (stereo).  I would say it's a sign of hearing loss (which she has) but I can hear the difference too...and my ears are just fine. (she does have some hearing loss, but not enough for hearing aids at this point).

    I'm looking for a starting point adjustment curve to customize the audyssey target curve (using the pro kit) to boost the presence/dialog just a little.  Which frequencies would I tweak up/down and how much.....at least that would give me a starting point to see if this approach helps.

    H Doug,

    There are a couple of ways to do this:

    1. Turn on Dynamic Volume on Heavy and then turn up the AVR volume until the dialog is loud and clear.  You won't have to worry about things getting too loud

    2. Change the target curve in MultEQ Pro by adding a boost centered at 1500-2000 Hz
