Readahead seems to have been disabled ;) I have a follow-up to the follow-up anyway. And before you say, I'm asking a different question to your follow-up to the follow-up :)

FAQ UPDATE!

Added new Q & A:


a)17. I made some changes in my room - do I need to re-run Audyssey? (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=21782993.html?highlight=#a17)

Whoa!

I agree with batpig. I was surprised to see that this is not specifically covered in the FAQ, so I will write a new Q&A for when it is advised to re-run Audyssey after making changes in the room.
