Well it's the 21st December here in Australia nothing has happened as of yet. I guess will see throughout the day if anything does happen. Might as well watch 2012 tonight.

Didn't you already have a HAA calibrator in your theater? What's going to change. Can't wait to see new pics though. Your room is what my room wants to be when it grows up biggrin.gif.

HAA calibrators pay Frank the big bucks for the privilege of stepping foot inside his theater. They also bid on Audiogon for the honor of sitting in those plush seats and, if they’re lucky, Frank may deign them worthy to make treatment suggestions for that spectacular room. cool.gif

The winter solstice does not happen until 11:11 GMT tomorrow so you better get your things in order before then. tongue.gif So If I'm lucky I will not have to go to work tomorrow since the end of days for me happen at 6:11 AM and I don't have to be at work till 7 am. BTW how you been Frank.?

That is correct mike, my last HAA calibration was pre audyssey xt32 we placed the subs with using Qsc eq in mind at the time ( that was meant to be further down the track ) and worked well.

Now that I have the xt32 we placed the front two at the mid fronts by doing that it increases the low end way too much and with the help of XT32 sorts those issues out. Couldn't do that without eq it would sound horrible. The midrange 50-80hz moved just a few db higher nothing to get excited about. I raised the right back sub up a bit but the db went up a little bit nothing to get excited with either.

All in all there wasn't much difference in the bass I had after applying audyssey, Lucky I didn't pay for it as he wanted to try out his new equipment happy to help, though I'm sick of running audyssey.

I did replace my wall treatments with new ones prior to him coming so its not too bad.

It's been nice knowing you, Franin. If you have time let us know how the end happens. Massive solar flare, super tidal wave and/or giant red back spiders. I have my own theory on our destruction.

OK. So there were a few changes. I could see how you would need it then. And yes, if you are reading this, I am still here smile.gif. You said you are sick of running Audyessy. I can relate. There was a point in time when I ran it a few times on my own and it was a pain. The Craig also did it for me a number of times as well. And I did watch 2012 last night biggrin.gif. Just in case.

Audyssey can be a pain in the rear end esp the pro side of it. The amount of work setting it up and pulling it down, I really am over it. Dont get me wrong the XT32 doees a great job (as the cherry on top ) and its better than spending $$$$$ on seperate eq systems.

I was going to watch 2012 tonight but I just recieved Catch Me If You Can so im going for watch that smile.gif

LOL@ watching “2012” tonight.

You know, our current interpretation of the Mayan major calendar (they had several) has been flawed from the start. The singular “legend” that is used to decode the calendars has been found to be faulty, but the scientific community deems it “close enough” and as such, it is still in use. The technical “end of the world” according to the Mayans is actually approximately 3 months away from today. That being said, 2012 (the movie) does have some great LFE moments  I hope 2012 (real life) doesn’t have ANY LFE moments, because that means volcanos are erupting beneath my feet.

I'm kinda of glad I kept my older players. I watched Total Recall the other night and with the Oppo bdp 93 it was riddled with audio dropouts but when watching it on my Denon 2500Bt ( transport player ) none whatsoever.
