So if you set DEQ to RLO of 10db it would be doing nothing....

Dave - there is zero difference between Flat and Reference in the bass region. The difference is entirely in the presence or absence of high frequency roll off.

We know with near certainty that it will be physically larger, have more power, 7.1 analog inputs, and 32 bit processing architecture. Also it will have 9 amps and 11ch processing like the 5200.

Keith, you should test this scene as well since you have 5.1.4.
