The RC-62 is well worth the upgrade over the 52, imo. I wasn't satisfied with the 52 at all but I love the 62. I feel like it's one of the most significant steps up in the line and wouldn't recommend...

So then what's the real gain of going to 7 from 5 speakers? It seems marginal, at best....a new sub would be a much better investment most likely (for me).

I'm just a sucker for a good deal.

That's a good point. I was planning on putting mine against the wall so it looks like it will have to be 61s at least.

It's very close. Going from my 52 to 62 was a huge difference. I wouldn't recommend going with a 52 personally.

You should be able to find a good enough deal on an x4000 at this point to get both.

I can second this. I'm very happy with my upgrade to x4000 from my 2113.

Maybe some of it is in my head but everything sounds much cleaner and clearer after calibration compared to my 2113 after...

Is the product any good? I foolishly thought 5.1 would be enough but I'm thinking of going 7.2...unfortunately I didn't wire the room for 7 speakers when I had the chance :(

^^^ Good to know, thanks.

I agree it's easy to get too caught up in minutiae instead of sitting back and enjoying what you have.

You're right - it comes with the new ones. My guy at Magnolia threw it in as a bonus. I'm sure it's better than nothing but probably not as good as a true stand. Hopefully I can set up tonight and...

So has anyone had a chance to use the cardboard "rocket" to use as a stand for the audyssey mic? I'm guessing it's better than nothing, but not as good as a true mic stand.

Have the reviews been that bad of the cardboard stand? Since it was made specifically for that purpose I thought it would be decent, at least.

Very true I forgot about the upgrade (I was more focused on the discount for duals). That makes it more appealing to go with a pb2000 first and see how it goes for my use. I have a feeling it's so...
