Why Turn Off Room Correction for 2 Ch Listening?

Receivers, Amps, and Processors - www.avsforum.com
In his 27Sep17 "Home Theater Review" article titled Correction Revisited", Dennis Burger commented that "When reviewing a receiver with MultEQ XT, I tend to turn it off when listening to multichannel music, but I quite enjoy the effect it has on movies."

I've read similar comments elsewhere but don't understand why that would be. I've also read comments and talked to dealer sales people who more than suggest auto room correction doesn't apply to 2 ch - 2 ch correction being a manual process of optimum main speaker placement. Anthem customer support emphatically refutes that statement saying ARC is absolutely applied to 2 ch listening as a saved profile that is a subset of the most expansive saved profile (ie 5.1 vs 7.1.4).

So the basic question is why would someone go through a detailed room calibration process then turn it off when listening to 2 ch music? Optimized 2 ch is what I'm most concerned about.

Thanks.
