I have a Yamaha RXV-371 receiver> I like it a lot but it does not have room calibration equipment. I don't want to get another receiver yet just to get this feature. What calibration equipment would you suggest?

Curious, Yamaha’s website claims that receiver has the YAPO calibration system.

You can download the free software Room EQ Wizard and use it with a calibrated UMIK-1 USB mic from Cross Spectrum, which costs only $105.

However, this will only allow you to take room measurements. Calibration includes equalization, so any manual calibration you do will depend on the EQ capabilities of your receiver. That typically requires fairly flexible parametric equalization with at least 5-6 available filters for each channel.

I spoke to a rep from Yamaha yesterday and they told me that YPAO is not supported with the RX-V371. The RX-V371's picture on the website with the microphone is incorrect.
