How to Bypass the Onkyo Automatic Speaker Setup
Onkyo allows the automated set-up routine to be bypassed. (sound image by Svetlana Kashkina from

Onkyo is a modern audio/video receiver that employs an automated system to determine speaker distance, delay, and equalisation. Many audiophiles do not wish to have this function in the signal chain, opting instead to trust their own abilities in setting up a receiver. Simple menu navigation within the receiver allows you to bypass the speaker set-up.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Onkyo receiver

  1. 1

    Press the "Menu" button on the Onkyo receiver's remote to enter the set-up menu.

  2. 2

    Press the directional keys on the remote to navigate to the submenu that reads "Audio Adjust." Press "Enter" to access the settings.

  3. 3

    Press the directional keys to the point on the submenu that reads "Audyssey DSX." Press the navigation button down to highlight "Audyssey."

  4. 4

    Press the left and right navigation buttons until "OFF" or "DEFEAT" is displayed. Press "Enter" to turn off auto-calibration. This bypasses the factory default and any previous calibrations.
