The only nearfield measurement for subwoofers was the first one for the Ultimax only. All others were from a single point that I consider to be the MLP. I felt it would be more consistant with my lack of proper measurement equipment to leave the mic stationary at the time.

I agree that there are many more benefits to Audyssey XT32 that cannot be seen in one single point measurement. I sure hope I did not imply that these were to be taken as ideal examples but more for my own curiosity. Perhaps my next day off I will take multi-point measurements and provide the before and after averages. The most important thing is how it sounds and as any who have heard XT32 in action will agree it sounds better than no room equalization.

Thank you for your input batpig, your knowledgeable input in this arena is always a pleasure.

Unfortunately my Sony AVR does not have Audyssey, and I don't trust the equalization it does have so I leave the calibration "flat".

Not at all, there was just some commentary about people noting that XT32 might not have done as good of a job as expected, and I just wanted to point out why the measurements you posted might not be sufficient to fully judge whether XT32 acheived its goals. Nothing critical, only explanatory!

I was out of town right after I picked up the pair of RC70 from UPS (shipped by Fry's), so the two boxes sit in the garage until today, almost a week after I picked them up. Both boxes look fine on 5 sides (the long side facing up), but the bottom side (the other long side that says FRAGILE and no Energy logo) has some damage on both boxes. One of them is a little bit worse. Two of the styrofoams on the leg side were shattered into 4-5 pieces.

There is no cosmetic damage. I sort of rock the speaker from all direction and no sound of loosing part is heard. However, I will hook them up asap to make sure nothing's broken.

I need some advice on choice of receiver or amp. I'm not a hardcore audiophile. This pair of RC70 will go to the bedroom, may upgrade to 5.1 eventually. Mostly for digital music (CD or bluray concert) and movie (bluray). I thought about getting a stereo receiver for now, but none has HDMI input. My budget is flexible, but rather keep it below $500. Any input is welcomed. Thanks
