For better or worse, it seems D+M have moved away from the Audyssey Pro Kit and is moving towards a more generic solution to Audyssey tweaking. This is their latest creation, the Audyssey MultEQ Editor. Available on Android and iOS.
At AUD$30.99 it’s one of the more expensive Android Apps out there. This app allows you to:
- View the speaker detection results, to check correct installation
- View before and after results of the Audyssey calibration, making it easy to identify room problems.
- Edit the Audyssey target curve for each channel pair to suit your tastes
- Adjust the overall EQ frequency roll off for each channel pair
- Switch between 2 high frequency roll off target curves
- Enable/Disable midrange compensation to make the sound brighter or smoother
- Save and load calibration results
At time of writing, this app has a rating of 2.8 on Google Play (Based on 175 reviews). There are 59 1 star reviews. Should you get this APP given the price and the reviews? Read on to find my take.

The hints how to copy and rename curves helped me a lot. Unfortunately the app is often not self-explanatory. Many thanks for your work.

A big THANK YOU for your article! This is what the user manual should have been! I followed it all the way through and successfully made the measurements, edit the curves, and uploaded to the receiver (Marantz AVR7012) , all in the First Try! However, the second try did not go so well. The app kept losing the receiver and I had to start over several times…… That’s probably is one of the reasons for low ratings. I finally noted your suggestion and use the IP address to "help" the app find the receiver. All my equipments are on a wired network, and the tablet was less than 5 feet away from the router. Never had any connection problem on wi-fi . Yes, the app is great , if it’s consistent. My cons are:
- Occasional loss of contact with receiver… "may" be handled by giving it the IP address to search on retry.
- Slow. It took me about an hour to upload the data to the receiver (AVR 7013 and Galaxy TAB-A). Many times I thought it was hung, but just waited it out.
Many thanks again for a very helpful article.
