Good guess. It's a Rythmic FV15HP and it measures pretty flat down to 16 hz in my room full of compromises.

Movies like Inception and I presume Interstellar (which is currently in the que) require multiple viewings to make sense of the story. At least for folks like me who suffer from both ADD and CRS. :D

My take from Heron's article was that he did indeed find the Calibrated Dark factory settings for that stuff were sufficient. I found that both Black Detail and Block Noise did nothing to enhance the...
