First, it very cool Denon supports their statement, legacy products like that. That 5308 is truly a statement piece, and seriously, them offering upgrades, that's just fantastic. With your reference quality LF capability, like you,..I too am quite interested in what the added granularity/control points that accompany Audyssey MultEQ XT32, would flesh out of your system. It'd be interesting to see an un-smoothed, before and after comparo. With the added processing capability, I'd suspect the range between the transition frequency, and the upper end of the subs would benefit to a large degree.
It's my understanding the HT SubEQ technology, is embedded into the XT32 offering. That said, I'm curious how they would implement the additional, discrete "Sub Two" controllable output, into the current back panel I/O's. That second channel of EQ/processing, in both the time and freq domains, can offer up some significant benefits. Certainly, it's not like you need it, but it's there none the less. Sure, there is the rogue unpredictability w/some Audyssey tunings, but w/measurement, that's easily discovered.
Good luck, ... and thanks for supporting this important thread.
