Hello, Frans,

Yes, the yamaha ypao function does work in the same manner as the dbx, in that it automatically adjusts the individual channels via a microphone based calibration process.

A sensitive microphone/sensor is placed at various listening positions in the room, test tones play from each speaker, and the speaker level settings and equalizer settings are then adjusted automatically to suit that space. On yamaha it is called YPAO, on Denon/Marantz is is Audyssey, on Pioneer it is MCACC, etc. This type of calibration procedure is a common feature on most modern mid to high end receivers. If you are not happy with the calibration of the yamaha, I can recommend some other models that may suit you better

Best regards,

Nathan

Well I would at least try the yamaha first, and listen to the results. If you have some specific results or feedback about what you like or don't, that would help me better tailor an alternate recommendation. Offhand though, this is what I would recommend: http://amzn.to/2cwoCR2
