I'm biased (as I'm supposed to get my Altitude next week), but if you're serious about SOTA electronic room EQ, your two choices are a Dirac or a Trinnov solution, or possibly using REW and a pre/pro...

It would be more fun to have 11.11.6 with 11 subs (OK, maybe not your clients). Imagine some one with 11 Seaton Submersives and a 40x35 room...:cool:

IIRC seamless branching wasn't an issue for the 103 but it was on the Oppo 93. I want to say that it was a limitation of the Mediatek processing chip used in older Oppos - wonder if it's the same...
