I for one think that an AVR with room correction is a good idea, especially for subs. Like you were thinking, it will set levels, phase, and delays for you while correcting the response of your bass.

Gosh the only thing I remember about the 705 is that it was HOT as hell. You can literally fry an egg on top of it. Also it had a lot of floor noise. I remember that it was the first thing I noticed when upgraded to the 876. IMHO it's not worthy to pay $175 for a 8 years old receiver... Just save more (with no rush) and get a newer receiver like the Denon X4100 with Audyssey XT32.

Good plan. When I get home tonight from buying the Def Tech bp30s, I will connect it all, reposition sub, rerun the test tones like always... then sit down and watch a movie and get back with my initial impressions.

So far though, the customer care at Rythmik has been A+... shipping A+ (both speedy and box in great shape).

The Denon X4100W is a killer deal, the only notable difference between it and the upcoming X4200W is HDCP 2.2 for 4K and DTS:X. the original price of the X4100W is $1400 and it comes with Audyssey MultEQ XT32 which is one of the best built in AVR room correction solution out there. the X4200W is due to arrive soon so the price for the X4100W has dropped to $729 or $799.99 from the most trusted guys like Crutchfield, B&H and Fry's Electronics.

Receiver - Sony STR-DH550
Front - Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-280F
Center
- Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-450C
Sub - Rythmik FV15HP

If you do not need stuff like Atmos and 2.2 you can still find new 4520ci's for $999.

Panasonic VT50 / Sony S7200
Denon AVR-4520CI
Klipsch RF-7II and RC-64II

I wonder if you're sitting in a null.
