That would be my advice - then ask here for clarification of anything you are unsure of. It might also be worth looking at the first page of the thread where there are some good links.

I'm sorry you had such poor experiences from the 4520. It isn’t the experience that most people have had, so it's possible, I guess, that you received two faulty units in a row, which is bad luck and...

Allan has a full 11.2.4 system, uses the 88A and has no EQ on his overheads at all. How does it sound? Freakin' amazing! Worth giving him a call to discuss it. (I got my unit from Ricky but haven't...

I would say that everyone needs to decide for themselves, but I am happy to have my 5 listener level speakers EQd plus 2 of the 4 overheads (and the subs of course). I would try it and see - you can...

We are, I think, in agreement. If the physical location of the two sets of speakers is different, then a calibration is required for each set. If not, not.
