Does XT32 allow main speakers to be EQ-ed as full range? Not from 40Hz and above as it is now with MultEQ XT.
Does XT32 (without any pro option) allow the user to see the FR on the display?
A lot of people dont care about using a computer with a sub eq. May be if the dual core had a video out, that would have helped. But having a screen, even though small, to view the FR is a plus compared to Audyssey. Not many people have 4 subs. There will be more people who would like to EQ the mains as full range (30Hz to 20KHz) or EQ just 2 subs, compared to people with 4 subs.
Right now even the street price of AVR's with XT32 is around $2000 (no including refurbished). There are a lot of features in those high end AVR's that I dont care much about, including the video as I always connect the DVD/BD player directly to the display. All the network features are useless to me. So for people like me, a stand alone full range EQ with a screen would be valuable. I bet the measurement is a lot straight forward than Audyssey. On the Antimode 8033, I just have to press 2 buttons. That is the kind of simplicity I am looking for.
