Heck if I know? I just started on this Dirac stuff.

Bruce said best to remove all chairs? Or just the one where you are measuring?

To me, it makes more sense that when you run your system, all of the chairs/recliners are in place. So wouldn't measurements with everything in place, reclining to a "normal use" position those that are typically being used in the average viewing/listening session, make more sense?

For me its too much hassle to disconnect each row of recliners and their power recliner mechanisms. So I measure with the recliner reclined but in place.

Just ordered a mini-boom mike from Amazon.com for a whole $25, which will make measuring easier and I won't have to kneel or stand in back of the recliner when I hit the measurement button for Dirac!

You mean you don't remember me? Back 1999 - 2003, I started and moderated the AVS Tweaks forum and also the AVS Special Guests forum.

Love to hear your system Steve! 😃 must send a thrill down your spine every time you use it! For music playback I go strictly old school, two- channel. Full surround for TV and Blu-Rays!
But I bet it is fun to listen music in surround on your system!

I just came from Steve's place, and it sounds fantastic! Two-channel is very impressive, and the multi-channel sounded the best I've heard at his place. Sounds like the venue - much bigger than his actual room. The bass from those JL Audio subs is amazing!
