Jerry, while the order of the mic placement really doesn't have any bearing apart from the first placement, doing so won't 'urt, eh? So, why not?
Well, a few pages back, batpig gave an example of how misinformation can 'hurt' and you enthusiastically agreed with him:
While the order of the mic positions cannot physically damage a system, suggesting that it is worthwhile to 'map' the order of placement for the mic positions can easily come into this same category as batpig, rightly, commented on. Before you know it, it has become 'Internet lore' and whenever someone mentions that the order is irrelevant (other than the first position of course), people will rise up to challenge that, quoting a post he saw on the Official Audyssey Thread which said that it was an "excellent idea" to map the order of mic placements.
For this reason, and one which you seemed to support wholeheartedly a few days ago, I am in total agreement with Jerry when he points out that the mic placement order is entirely irrelevant to an Audyssey calibration, so long as the 1st position is respected and that more experienced users have a duty to stamp out such misinformation, not to tacitly support it.
Are you joking? One of our purposes in participating in this thread is to provide accurate advice, and allowing someone to think that the order of mic placement has any bearing on the outcome would not be right.
