Hi guys,

To clarify here, time was an issue due to others not having the right info on this early release of the Auro enabled unit. We had to re-run the calibration on 15 channels a second time...

That 6-15dB range is related to different movie soundtrack content, not the room. There are some examples which don't have as much deep bass which will easily play at or near reference.
