Or better yet, do not updated any device firmware until 2-3 weeks after it has been out so you can read all the complaints about what it broke. Then decide if you want it or not

Everything ok ?? You seem upset. I was referring to a change that could happen and not having a clue what exactly changed, BY EYEBALLING IT. Read the entire comment first before you go into a rage filled rant, lol. Are you serious ?? This last update (which I did) harmed absolutely nothing, which is the norm. But I have seen updates from car nav systems to tv's, to blu ray players to computers and guys (and gals) lost all settings and had to start from scratch. That isn't a fun situation. Calm down bro. Go put a chicken in the "rotisserie", pour yourself a drink, turn your tv on and enjoy your evening.

Everything is fine, I was merely making the point that instead of thinking your calibration will last for multiple years, that you should have your set looked at every 18 months by a professional (yearly is better).

I am refuting your assertion that as long as you don't change anything on your set, nothing will change.....Time will change things for you and should be addressed regularly for the optimal results you desire

I agree with settings changing over time. Having a calibrator out once a year is staying on top of things to say the least. I think every 18-24 months would be fine as well. My VT has been wall mounted and watched since April 2013, I'm having my first calibration done in Jan 2015 so I'm pretty damn excited !

Pretty nice system as is, and would require a lot of bank to make a major dent. Best suggestion I have, if you are using a Klipsch sub, is look at a Hsu or Rythmik 15", if you have the room. Dual 15" subs took my HT into another level.

Yes, the Hsu subwoofer(s) will blow your mind for the quality, power and how reasonably priced the are. I have a Hsu VTF-3 MK4 subwoofer and it went/is WAY beyond my expectations. The look on my friends faces when the experience is priceless.

Im using the Denon X4000 as a preamp because it has XT32 and the Outlaw amp. An argument can be made that Klipsch are so effecient they do not need that much power, but certain things could be used to argue against AVR on board power with a 5.1 or 7.1 system. I like my amp. I looked at Preamps and they are just too pricey when you can use an AVR as a preamp and get an amp. Between my X4000 (open box) and the Outlaw, I have about $1800 in the "preamp" and amp. X4000 is nice also because it has dual sub outs and Dual Sub EQ. It is so easy to eq my subs now.

To me, an AVR or preamp with XT32 is a good thing, I think once setup is ran properly it sounds excellent. The Outlaw amps are good american power and they are rated at all channels driven. My amp is 125x7, but has been tested around 140x7 actual power, and at 3 channels its well up there. So if you have the 7125 like me, and run a 5.1 system, you are actually getting more than 125x5, probably like 150x5.

I'm also using an X4000 and it's my only power source. If your speakers are VERY efficient it's no problem and mine are....

4 Surrounds - JTR Slanted 8HT's
2 Subs - JTR Captivator S2's

Completely off subject. Read your profile. Thank you for your service to this country. From a Marine attack pilot to flying the big-boy 767 is a remarkable career.
