And yes it sounds like crap in other places. This is one reason why passive room treatments like traps are used. Heck - with some lower freqs move your head a couple inches and you can hear that you are popping in and out of zones. On furniture and opening a door. While your point is correct I am not sure it outweighs use of the device. Are doors opening and furniture moving that often?
DSP has its uses and should not be ruled out. I have huge bumps in my room at 48, 68 and 130hz. The DSP fixes these.
I have huge bumps and dips in my room at about three different frequencies like that, with a measuring mic in the middle of the room. If I move the mic to the back of the room and measure again, the bumps and dips virtually change places.
How can you trust EQ to fix this? "Sweet spot" etc. but it's hard to trust an EQ arrangement that makes the response worse in other parts of the room. And as somebody pointed out in a similar discussion on another forum, how the hell do you EQ a null?
The problem is that you only have to move a piece of furniture, open the door or have another person walk into the room and your "sweet spot" is all different.
