Have you tried Reship or similar? I use it when I buy from DIY Sound Group (speaker kits).

Cool diffusors!

Since my space is not very high (unlike yours) but rather wide, I went for absorption on the ceiling (to make it acoustically disappear) and diffusion on the sides.

The extra channels from the upgrade will be unbalanced. I believe rec-out and/or zone 2 RCA outputs will be used.

The RMC-1 is different from the XMC-1 v3. The RMC-1 will be 16-channel! It will...

I think Dirac Unison will work best if all speakers are very capable to produce bass. Not sure if Unison sets the satellites to 80 Hz like Audissey, it seems to me that would harm overall capacity to...

LOL!

But it keeps getting better! I was a 12-channel pre-pro in 2012 but now we will have 16-channel. And Dirac Unison!

Will the Marantz be 13.2 at last? And more importantly, will it have Dirac Unison? If not, it's irrelevant if it costs less than the RMC-1. Plus I still have a reduction card which came with my $500...

To my knowledge, no HT pre-pro/AVR available at this time has Dirac Unison on board.

I can tell you how I understand it will work though: if speaker A produces unwanted sounds (room modes or early...

9.3.2 is definitely not my choice. 7.3.6 would be sweet and to be honest very close to 9.3.6 in my HT for the front row. That's because my Fronts are very wide apart, hence Wides are a smaller bonus...

Hi,

In my country it is called Rockwool Rhinoxx which is a flatroof insulation panel. I believe in UK the name is Rockwool Hardrock Multi-Fix. Thickness was 120 mm (5"). I made frames out of...

Just guessing: maybe it's the materials of the combined walls, floor and ceiling that's causing this?? If so, a tuned bass absorber might help?

It's larger than average... But ultimately that doesn't matter much IMO since Atmos etc is all about the angles. Only difference large spaces like large speakers.

The acoustic properties of the room are also a key factor. Less than optimal acoustics will result in a more blurry sound. Adding more speakers will not enhance things.
