Since I have to level adjust now after running XT32, the umik will be perfect, and I want to do more investigating on sub trim levels. I still think audyssey sets the sub too low.
Interesting that my 7's are also 10.5' apart and 10.3' from the MLP after XT32. I have my SB13 Ultra on the inside as well.

Welp, spreading them out fixed it! Got XT32 run, level matched everything and watched some DVR's.

Using CSI as an example for 5.1, the center sounds like it is coming from the screen. When the fronts are playing the same thing, they sound balanced, but when they aren't, you can tell where stuff is coming from. For example, at a police station, sirens were heard outside out of the front right while someone typing on a keyboard was clear as day out of the left.

When in stereo, if I stand at the MLP, it actually sounds like the sound is coming from the screen, not the left and right fronts. Perfectly balanced.

Another example, center sounds are also more segregated from right and left, doesn't sound like it they are tripping over each other. In a jail scene there was some loud discussion in the center, and some jail doors opening and shutting in the left. Could be easily distinguished, while nothing going on in front right.

So just auditioned the KG 5.5s and he didn't want them because he couldn't try them with a turn table first

I record a lot from vinyl to tape and I must admit analog has a different tone to it from some digital formats. Some LP with no tone controls used sound just like a good FLAC or lossless CD with a warm laid back tone/dynamics to it. On most entry level AVR HT system, LP's just suck as the phono section, pre amp for analog is lacking, no bass and they sound flatt no matter how you adjust the Eq or tone controls. But IMHO this person used that as a excuse, as some like 3 way Klipsch or the basic 2 ways. Crappie excuse I think, YMMV.

Yeah that's understandable. He listened for a good thirty minutes. Just to some jazz on Spotify through my PS4 lol.
No worries though. I don't mind.
I have 2 other possible buyers coming tomorrow. [emoji41]

Burn Robin Trower new LP "Something's About To Change" (totally different from R.T. )the bass and separation is Killer on this FLAC CD. It will show off the 5.5 Big Time thru your PS4. I use a PS3 for Blurays and was stunned when I played this thru my AVR as I usually use my Hafler Rack to my Cornwalls for CD music.
