It could be a factor - when I had to have a medical examination for flying, I recall the doctor saying that I had very good peripheral vision. That was a long time ago but I assume it's something...

I think those speakers would benefit from a better, more powerful sub and that could be your next upgrade. The Kube 2 is a good sub for what it is, but it is overpriced for the spec. It has a 10 inch...

Well if you follow the link I gave you and read that complete FAQ answer, you will see why XT is a fairly poor choice for room EQ, compared with XT32.

I agree with JD normally that one should...

Sorry JD but I don't agree with that advice at all. The room is the most significant component in a system, and thus the room EQ is the most important part of any modern AVR. Given that XT32 is a...

Yes, XT32 is a very significant step up. If you want to know the technical reasons why, I wrote an in-depth Addendum to the Audyssey FAQ explaining it, with relevant measurement graphs etc. You can...

I sit the same distance from the screen as the screen is wide. Seems perfect to me. Very immersive.

Well yes - but we knew that when we bought it of course. My next AVR, this time next year, will have DTS:X of course. There might even be some content for it by then ;)

XT32 is a very significant upgrade to XT. And definitely better, IMO, than MCACC. If I were you I would wait, if you can, for the unit with XT32. XT32 is so good that when Onkyo dropped support for...

Yes I know. But you will be able to when they sort out whatever the problem is. A bug, or some limitation. It doesn't affect me and my 5200 of course. I can use DSU with anything. And by the time I...

The unit with the best room EQ system. In the case of Denon or Yamaha, it's Denon.

I'm not "suggesting" anything. I am telling you that to get a 3dB increase in output you need to double the power of the amp. So if you have a 100 watt amp, you need to go to a 200 watt amp to get a...

They will. This is either an unworked-out bug or a limitation of some sort IMO. They will fix it with a FW update. It seems to only affect Denon/Marantz anyway - I am told Yamaha is not affected. If...

Personally, I doubt that the room will be too 'dead'. If it is for movies only, then there isn't, IMO, a real downside to it being somewhat dead anyway, since all of the required ambience,...
