audyssey on or off doesnt change the volume (dynamic eg/vol off - a marantz feature)
For room reflections/echos you need room acoustic treatments.

I recently picked up a r28f system for a crazy good price. I am powering it with a Denon x1300w. I think it sounds pretty good!

What are the pros to upgrading to the RP series? Maybe the RP260.

I live in an apartment and listening at reference levels is impossible. I got a warning from the office less than 48hrs of installing the system.

From my recent experience (read back a few pages) --- NOTHING.

It was especially tragic after going through all of the return process then buying a pair of the RF82 IIs and getting them home and then having to put them out in the damn room so they had enough space behind them for the ports, and then having a more harsh sounding high end (okay, so break them in yada yada...) and the mids didn't sound as nice, but of course they are crossed over at a different frequency... on and on. Then boxing those up and returning them and driving back to best buy to get back my original pair of R28Fs since I know they were perfect. What a freaking nightmare, and it was worse because I have PTSD.

So happy I got back my R28Fs. Great rock & roll and home theater speakers. And you can shove them all the way up to the wall too, as it's front ported. I cranked up fleetwood mac rumours and was in heaven, sounds so good. Excellent bass and mids. Great sounding vocals. perfect classic rock, R&B, and home theater speaker. Love it.

The R28Fs are great sounding speakers, don't let the naysayers pooh pooh because they're not top of the line.

Audyssey changes channel gain, and simply turning it on and off keeps the channel volume settings as they were. Also, filtering in audyssey can cause a slight change in volume with different speakers. I'm not refering to dynamic volume/EQ at all, which is an Audyssey feature, not Marantz per se.

I appreciate that reply and your choice of music. I would not be able to give rear ported speakers proper clearance anyways.

Sorry you went through all that, but glad to hear you ended up with something that makes you happy--fundamentally, that should be all that any of us are really seeking, regardless of the gear we choose.

That Fleetwood Mac is good stuff. Enjoy!
