Back from vacation sitting home in CA telling myself to be patient for my V1500 and S3000i to arrive for my testing and I'm thinking today about how to make the most of my time with these two before making the decision about which stays (and has a twin ordered) and which goes back. Right now, I'm building a track list of a broad selection of music; some of which is specifically for "bass-critical" listening and most represents my typical listening preferences. I've also got several Blu Ray discs lined up and ready to demo some scenes.

What has me a bit flummoxed is now I'll be getting a UMIK-1 and miniDSP with my order and I feel the urge to start measuring like crazy. Some measurements are good--but I worry that my inexperience with REW might lead me down some dark paths. Curious as to what folks think: spend time with REW on each of these trying to get it to "peak" performance or focus more on listening tests and get engrossed in dozens of measurements and tweaks later?

Was really thinking about getting a Umk as well but afraid to start dabbling into it. I tried home theater video calibration and that was a huge pain haha

Brian: Your room is about 1500cf, my room is 2332cf and I re -watched Godzilla with my boys at -15MV and the bass was insane. I know the bass was filtered below 30hz but it sounded great, waves of energy shaking and moving the couch. Your 2 XS30'S is going to sound killer in that room, like I mentioned in your build Thread I would build that room so NOTHING rattles because those XS30'S are going to wreak some havoc in that room

Equipment List: Benq W6000, Darbee DVP-5000 Video Processor, JKP Affinity 100 inch 16x9 .9 gain reference screen, Onkyo 818 receiver, 3-Marantz Ma700 and 2-Ma6100 mono blocks, 9.2 set-up, B&W Nautilus 805 front speakers, B&W Nautilus HTM2 center speaker, Infinity ( soon to be replaced by B&W ) bookshelf Height Speakers, Mirage HDT-R side speakers, Jamo THX surround one rear speakers, Dual PSA XS30se subs, Richard Grey, Monster Power, and Panamax powerline conditioning/surge protection.
