You are welcome. If you are new to Audyssey, I suggest a read of the 101, linked in my sig. It can save much frustration.

Oh I want it. I want 24.1.10. The problem is I don't have room for it! :)

I want a night with Sienna Miller too. But I have to be realistic and practical in what is achievable :)
