I completely agree with your points.If this iteration on Audyssey does a good job, it might be part of the value question of paying $3000 + $200 for a Marantz 7706 and MultEQ X versus $3800 for an Anthem AVM70.
Or at a lower-cost high-end AVR, getting a $1000 + $200 Denon 2700 with MultEQ X versus $1700 Anthem MRX 540.
I’m still waiting to hear if the new Audyssey software is any good, worth $200, how it compares to ARC, etc. I hope to replace my Marantz 7702 mkII next year or two. I’ve been thinking about Anthem with everyone extolling ARC. But maybe Audyssey is finally getting competitive again? Waiting and watching
It appears to be compatible with both Marantz units I have now. The Windows limitation makes it a no-go for me, though.
