I think you are splitting hairs (not you, Jim). Above 30Hz, both waterfalls look fine. Below 30Hz, one would expect the level of ringing to be slightly higher on the red graph because the bass...

Aren't these statements contradictory? If there is nothing below 30Hz, what are you "giving up"? A significant dip at 60Hz, on the other hand, is in a pretty important part of the frequency range....

How do you test the left surround fix if the audio is cycling off and on? You hear sound out of that speaker when audio is actually playing? Well, that is forward progress.

From my perspective, uncharted territory. Your safe choices are to enjoy the excellent PQ of the up-scaled 1080p image (my recommendation), or shell out $500-700 for the media player (which is not a...

Above 25Hz, green is a clear winner. You may be impressed by the extension below 25Hz shown by red, but what source content do you have that extends that low? If you favor music, forget below 25Hz...

Unfortunately not. You would need the X10 player to receive pure
4K Netflix streaming. However, HOC in up-scaled 1080p has a stunning PQ, so enjoy it.

FR looks very good. The waterfall and spectrogram should be taken with subs+center, or subs+left+right, because the mains may add bass resonance.

Seeing a measurement with the mains as well would...

I don't see why the Denon couldn't drive the Magicos effectively. You could try it, and add a power amp later if you find it is needed. 86dB isn't the most efficient speaker, so it would depend on...

I went from the 4311 to the 4520, which is also a move from 24 to 32. I could not hear any difference (both sounded very good). If that is the only reason for your change, you will be disappointed.
