Well, I got sick of using the PS3 as a bluray player and finally picked up a standalone player to use for discs and Vudu. Of course I've been wanting the Oppo 103 since it came out, but I don't need/want the Darbee, and since I'm not going to go for the higher end model and connect it directly to an amp, I just couldn't justify the extra expense. So yesterday I put an end to the internal debate and went to BB and picked up a Panasonic BDT360 and a handful of blurays. You know, to test it out and make sure it works right.
And the verdict is it definitely works. Loads up discs quickly and passes the correct info to the Emotiva. The Vudu app performs better than the PS3, too.
So while I was installing that I took a few extra minutes to straighten up my rack a bit.
And then today I finally took the time to set everything up and run REW. And on the second pass, I had success! Not a huge difference from the EMO-Q that I'd been using since installing the eD LCRs, but a definite improvement. I was prett happy with the EMO-Q once I reset the correct distance settings and speaker sizes, but my new PEQ settings remove the chestiness that EMO-Q left. Still a nice horn sound, but cleaner upper-midrange. Very happy right now.
(No, that's not the mic placement I used for measurements.
