Interesting news from the comments section of a loudspeaker review.

While he doesn't say it, given the prices he mentions in the review ("In the $4500 price range, two PC-3.5s, two well placed mono subwoofers, and a good digital room equalizer/bass management system form a 4 way system which would be competitive with some speaker systems costing over $10,000.") I suspect he's talking about an MRX unit and not a pre/pro.
That's one review I'm looking forward to seeing!
Due respect to Prof. Rubinson, who has done more to promote multichannel music reproduction than anyone else, but Dr. Rich is the best in the business.
NOT the most readable, perhaps (by a long shot), but the one who provides the best information, unencumbered by various mythological idiocies about wires, amps, etc. (One will never read what brand of "interconnects" are used in one of Dr. Rich's reviews!)
I'll be especially interested to see how he handles the issue that has thus far stumped me: how to actually measure what ARC does in room, given that there are no multichannel analog inputs to accept measurement signals.
