Great News for the users of Denon and Marantz who are using the Audyssey MultEQ Mobile app for room calibration.

Obsessive Compulsive Audiophile introduced "Audyssey One" which eliminates the complicated and tedious process of manual EQ to a simple "push this button" application for optimizing an Audyssey calibration with the help of REW. To proceed you required the MultEQ Editor mobile app and John Mulcahy's free and amazing Room EQ Wizard (REW).

This "Audyssey One" works for any configuration that the Audyssey MultEQ Editor App can measure and is covered from 2.1 to 9.1.6 including Auro-3D.

Below is the link for the YouTube video uploaded by the OCA and since upload he is responding to each one with their query.

https://youtube.com/watch?v=iU1ZBsru76M&si=pe41ERqXwOCQ2ZKU

Just keep in mind that you will get better results with max position measurements (8 positions and more) with the Audyssey MultEQ App. Better the calibration = Better the result. So ensure to get good measurements before processing.

Huge thanks to OCA for making this script and for constant improvement by introducing new versions of the Script (the Current version is Audyssey One v 1.1) and John Mulcahy's free and amazing Room EQ Wizard (REW) and making them available for free to all.

User's views, experiences and comments are invited to discuss on this.

With Regards,
Bhavik

What does this do exactly, looks like it's for the MultEQ Editor App, I have the MultEQ-X software

It works with ".Ady" file generated from Audyssey MultEQ Mobile App. You need to export your calibration ".Ady" file to the PC from your mobile App and import it to the Audyssey One where you will get the Zip File of all your 8 measurements you took while calibration through the mobile app.

Once you import these measurements in the REW and start optimization, it will automatically optimize and make necessary corrections and EQ, time alignments, SPL alignment etc within 1.5 minute and will give your new optimized ".Ady" file to import in to AVR through the Mobile App. It also works for multi subwoofer.

I did it, it took hardly 5 minute in all process and I could really hear and feel the differences between inbuilt Audyssey Cal vs Audyssey One.

You can give it try.

I tried it with my AVR cannot say anything conclusive as I need to measure a bit more. This is my center channel

C0 is multieq measurements
C is REW measurements with Audyssey on in the same point (approx). Crossover is set at 150Hz rest looks very similar, I think I missed something.
I need will remeasure with factory reset to see if there will be any difference.

I found that latest multieq app is quite stable compared to the previous versions.

This is what I get in the MultiEQ correction window. It feels to me that Audyssey was not on during REW measurements.

This is a another one of those once in a while game changers! Completely amazed by its creation and so happy I'm aware of it.
Thank you @serko70

No, because you need mobile app to export your calibration to your AVR through app. This Audyssey One gives you .ady file which requires mobile app.

You need $20 MultEQ mobile app. You can get help of any your friend who has mobile app and if it works for you, you can think to buy it.

MiniDSP 2x4 Hd can be used pre or post Audyssey calibration for better tuning your system.

Just tried OCA Audy One today, all went well after I figured out I needed the Beta version for my Mac.

A couple of questions/observations:
  1. Audy One sets my LCR at the same distance even though the center is closest and Audy shows that.
  2. Speaker trims are lower than Audy (1-2 dB)
  3. The sub distance is 26.7' vs. Audy at 13.9' (sub is set 180˚ polarity to correct a dip.)
Running Denon X3800H so should be on speed of sound issue. Thoughts?

I used A1 as well, but didn't like the result at all, but I've used it as well as miniDSP to give me a much better result

Thanks, I have been working with Audy over a year and also Dirac since December and have not concluded that one is better than the other. I thought I would give Audy One a shot and see how it goes. Just tested with a few concert songs and it seems ok, will have to try on wider range of source material to see where it ends up. Just trying to understand what is right and wrong with it.

Just for curiosity, why do you have your crossover so high at 150?

This was my result after using A1

I don't, all are set at 80 by Audy One. Are you looking at the sub phase which can be 0 or 180˚ on my unit?

No, is just that you said that "Crossover is set at 150Hz" just curious, on mine A1 was set to 80hz, but the best I can get in my room is 110

I have crossovers set at 80-100hz. All 9 speakers are identical mtm layout with some closer to the wall leading to a slightl boost in the output.

Is there a way to automatically measure all 5.x.4 speakers? With a script or something?
