Guess what, kiddies! The Controller manual is up on line:http://www.nhthifi.com/manuals/curre...-userguide.pdf
The cool thing about this is that it reveals two things that I *really* like about this. One, it does composite and s-video to HDMI conversion (no component to HDMI, but I don't think that's very useful anyway) and the other thing is that, instead of typical "inputs", it uses a matrix configuration where you choose one of ten virtual "inputs" that you can name yourself and then assign *any* video, *any* audio. So, you could have a "DVD-A" input that uses HDMI for video and 7.1 analog input for audio. Then have "DVD-V" that uses HDMI for both. And as I understand it, then you can prioritize the inputs so that your top 3 or 4 are more easily accessible. Lots of really cool stuff in this. I'm replacing my NAD T-series stuff with it because I want the HDMI and NHT EQ.
I was, however, wrong about the room EQ. Rather than that, it has the speaker EQ and the auto calibration. The auto calibration will also factor in group delay and such, so it would be more accurate than measuring by hand, in theory.
Perhaps they could make an alternative software program that allows for room EQ. They didn't much like my idea for EQ memories for other companies' speakers, I wonder why.....
Anyway, all and all, the package is massively slick for a very reasonable price with lots of cool little features aside from the bigger main ones. I am personally choosing it over NAD's Masters series because of the more powerful HDMI and the assumption, hopefully valid, that it will make my otherwise good sounding NHT L5s sound even better and cleaner with the EQ, especially considering their onwall placement.
