    @ Casimiro

    I had a look at your graph and there are two things that stood out.
    The red line, which shows your room response, has a dip at 50hz and a small peak at around 80hz. The green line, which is your corrected response, strictly follows the green line. If there would have any eq correction taken place, this should not be the case. The green line should more closely follow the yellow line. So, in my opinion something is not working correctly.

    Secondly, I realized that in your graph there are no separate responses for your speaker and sub. When I run the auto-eq measurement, I get separate close mic responses for the speaker and the sub. The lines for that are purple. They are missing in your graph. Are you sure, you told the app that you have a subwoofer connected?

    @ Casimiro I still can´t see any attachment.

    Regarding the Auto-EQ feature: This feature can only do so much. If your room is really shitty, the Auto-EQ might make it a bit more acceptable, but it will never be perfect. I think the Auto-EQ works best, when your room already sounds pretty decent. Then some slight EQ adjustment can give you an awesome linear frequency response. Maybe your room acoustics are already very good, then you would expect no change with the Auto-EQ.

    Hey frale,

    I can feel you. I too, have no apple device and to this point in time cannot get a proper EQ calibration.
    And the funny thing is, that I use Equalizer APO and have dialed in my own EQ, which makes the a HUGE diffrence.
    I very sad, that the auto EQ is not working for me and I would be so much happier, if I could insert my own EQ settings into the EA101eq-g.

    Btw: I already suggested this a while back (suggestion: manual eq) which was completely ignored by Elac 🙁

    Hey cyberjom,

    first thing to make sure is that the bass setting is at 0. For that go into the Elac app and then to settings.
    Here you find “Bass and Treble” and there you have a slider for bass. Set in the middle to zero.

    After that, also in the settings go to the auto blend tab.
    There press “start auto blend”.

    First question the app will ask is if you have a subwoofer. Click “no”.
    Then follow through the rest of the auto blend instructions.

    This way you told your system, that you do not have a sub attached and also calibrated the auto EQ.
    You can also turn of the auto EQ feature in the settings afterwards if you like.

    Hope that helps,
    Kayos

    Hey frale,

    do you use a subwoofer?

    If not, I encountered the same problem as you. Below 80hz the room response was not corrected.
    Till today, this problem persists but only when I measure the room with an android device.
    see here:AutoEQ feature problem

    As I used an Iphone, this problem went away. I think there is still a bug in the adroid app which prevents proper correction 🙁

    So one thing you could do is to try an apple device for calibration and see what happens.
    This is also interesting for me. If it works with an apple device, then I´m not the only one with this problem 🙂

    Hey minski,

    the amp has some kind of auto power on/off feature.
    If you turn the amp on and leave it for roughly half an hour, it will shut off automatically.
    When you start playing music again, it will automatically turn on.

    I tried it on with USB and digital inputs. Don´t know about the analog Inputs, but I reckon they would work as well.

    Hope that helps.

    I would also be very interested in this feature. Displaying the current volume makes much more sens instead of the source.
    Charles, thanks for listening to the Feedback!!!

    Hey, Charles thanks for your input.
    I already watched the video and did everything as instructed.

    FYI: I´m not using a subwoofer. Just the Auto-EQ feature on my two speakers.

    Today i used an Iphone 5s to do the measurement with the app and you can find my room response below:
    Auto-EQ feature off Iphone
    Auto-EQ feature on Iphone

    As you can see this time the Auto-EQ feature did help quite a bit. Especially at 55 Hertz.
    And it sounds quite nice as well 🙂
    So I´m assuming the andoid app has some kind of bug. With the andoid app my room response just would not correct the right way.

    Hi music4life,

    yes, the EA101EQ-G high passes your speakers und low passes your sub at the user definable crossover frequency.
    Finally my speakers do not have to struggle with very deep frequencies anymore 🙂

    @antonio

    It seems as if you have started the update process but your USB Media was not found.

    Make sure you have extracted the zipped files.
    Make sure the firmware files are in the root directory of your USB Media.
    Maybe try another USB stick.

    Other than that, follow these steps and it should work:

    -download the newest firmware to root on USB stick

    -plug in USB-Stick on the service port

    -unplug power from amp

    -wait ca. 2 minutes or try the trick of hansmm

    -press and hold reset button while plugging in power cable

    -let go of reset button

    -display should say something like “updating firmware”

    -you will see the progress in %

    -once it finished it says something like “update successful. remove USB media”

    -just remove USB stick from service port and you´re done

    You can verify the update in the app in the “About” tab.

    You´re right, it seems that before you can install the Firmware all the remaining energy in the amp must be drained completly.
    I solved this by unplugging the amp and waiting about a minute before plugging it in again for the update.

    This isn´t mentioned in the manual and at first I coulnd´t get it to work because of the remaining power.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    @hansmm

    You are definitely right, there is a whole war going on about the cable topic and I will not argue on that.

    @w4rr3ndn

    The best way to find the right cable for you is to test on your own.
    Grab some standard 14 gauge speaker wire with oxygen free copper and borrow a few expensive cables and have a listen.
    Best to do this unbiased. For example, a friend of yours switches the cables and you do not know which one you are listening to.
    If you can hear a difference that’s ok, pick the one which sounds the best.
    If they sound identical pick the cheap one and save money.

    One more point aside from sound is aesthetics. You will find that more expensive speaker wire will look much better and can have banana plugs already attached.
    So, you may choose a more expensive cable just for aesthetics and ease of use, even when it sounds identical to cheaper cable. All a matter of preference.

    Hey,

    at this point in time I couldn’t find any instructions on the auto room eq in the manual either.
    But check out this instruction video from ELAC:

    Hope this helps.

    Hey BNaman,

    Thank´s for your input but I don´t think that this problem is related to the micrphone in the smartphone.
    Because I also tried this with a Rode Smartlav+ attached to my phone and got the same results.
