ArchonX, great guide there. I have 2 new front Martin Logans and a new center going into my system that has a LX-88 in it this week. Going to use your workflow for it. I tend to agree with you about the quality of MCACC Pro, with the exception of when you get to much more expensive systems that use say RoomPerfect (and I suspect Dirac Live) as I've got in another other room setup.

Loved the info you just posted in the room. How about positions of mic placement after main seat I would like to hear your thoughts
But there's only 1 mic position with MCACC Pro, unlike other RC systems.

Care to clarify? I won't be able to redo my system till later in the week. From reading his workflow, I can't see why it wouldn't handle the LX-88 in my system.

I wasn't across which models didn't have MCACC Pro, but I see the SC-79 seems to lack it. In which case, its most probably not a workflow for you - you're better off with the original tips from page 1.

Hello All,
I recently purchased a used Pioneer SC 68 and am having some problems setting up MCACC. I hope this is the right place to post this question. I've searched on the forum as well as the web in general but haven't found anything to help me. If this is has been discussed please let me know, I don't want to waste any ones time.


The first time I ran Full Auto MCACC I got a few errors saying the speaker wire were reversed, I checked to make sure then proceeded. The results across the front three channels was much better than my old system but I could not hear the surrounds (5.1)unless I climbed a ladder to get close to the speakers. So I decided to change the direction the surrounds were pointing and rerun MCACC, and the fun began!


The program starts out alright, but gives different front left, right or, center speaker or speakers reverse polarity error. Then when I tell it to continue, it does but it drops the sub and both surrounds from the test. The speakers are all M & K, LCR-35 across the front three channels, two LCR-25's for the surrounds and a sub.


I know this must be user error, any input will be appreciated.


Thank You
John
