I can do all that but I will need some hand holding. Let's see first of all how I get on with it. Like I say, if the subs are 10dB hot I won't need measurements to tell me that!

Give a guy a break! It's hard enough backing the winning horse, let alone riding it :)

Good post. I agree with most of it - just one comment - why do you say Audyssey doesn't play nice with Atmos? It most definitely does.

We all have experience with AccuEQ. All we have to do is turn off the EQ system in our AVR and, voila, we have AccuEQ :)

It should be pretty easy to see/hear a 10dB bass boost, I'd hope ;) I am fairly confident that if my dual Submersives are running 10dB hot, I will know. And so will my neighbours ;) And it will show...

That is my decision too. And yes, I backed HD-DVD and have a few players and about 100 discs. I bought almost all of them for knock-down prices after Bluray won.

+1. It is possible they have ported something over from their nanoAVR unit which is intended to sit between a source (Bluray player) and the AVR.
