Default ML DSP on or off for music?

I was listening to a CD (regular one) on my ML system, and wondered how many of you leave DSP on for regular stereo music vs. turning it off? DSP on seems a little too center-channelly for me, but DSP off kind of sounds funny.

Never tried off yet. Loved the sound with a center speaker.

the DSP is **** in the is350. i'm sorry but is should be a timing issue not a volume modulation like they use. its just idiotic..but its factory so oh well.

leave it standard.

bad analogy--airbag is a safety item, not luxury--you will be thankful you have an airbag when the time comes; although you'd wish that you'd never have to use it. DSP is more like the seat heater/cooler--use it if you feel it enhances your driving/listening experience. I personally leave it on because the plain stereo mode sounds kind of flat in comparison.

jesus jlin it was a purposely over exagerated analogy. get out once and a while.

and it probably sounds 'weird' with it off because you've been listening to one band louder than the other for a while.
