Saving Your Audyssey Calibration
Here you setup some basic Audyssey DSP. My preference is to enable DynamicEQ and leave everything off. Dynamic Volume can be enabled manually in late nights when I want to watch a movie. As for LFC (Low Frequency Containment), not going to turn it on ever !!
Click next and you will be prompted to save your measurements. Enter a name and hit the ‘Done’ button. Woohoo! You have your first dataset to play with.
Alright. Now the tedious part is over, time for some fun - edit!.
Note that at this stage all the data resides on your Android (or iOS device). You’d need to upload this back to the receiver for the Audyssey DSP to take effect. I’d touch on how to do this at the end of this article.
First I’d briefly walk you through all the options available to you when you are editing a dataset.

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.
