No way would I use MCACC auto eq, it is horrible and measures way not flat too. For the 212's the only time I use the manual eq is on bad recordings I pull down 2-4 khz a couple of db's.
With the 212's I found i had to use the manual eq setting above more often before I got the wall and ceiling acoustic panels. Now I hardly use it at all.
As far as the Danley's go, no way they sound best all the way against the wall with my LP so close. I bet if I moved the subs and tri traps in the corners and moved them back 4 of 5 feet to the front corners that would work better for the main LP.
Last night when I would go back to the 2nd row the sound improved significantly compared to the front row when the Danleys were butted up on the side walls. That's a first, normally there is a pretty big difference in my room between the 1st and 2nd row with the 212's, the first row sounds quite a bit better so that's a big advantage for the Danley's for people with multiple rows.
I did notice that I had no problem shutting off the system and going to bed. That doesn't happen with the 212's, it's a struggle every night to force myself to stop listening to music on the 212's.
Absolutely no problem with not making it over - dude - you're buying a house we have to have a least a shred of keeping our priorities in order.... every once in a while.... I think??
