Anything that doesn't show the potential of my JTR subs needs to find another home. I guess I will pick up a Marantz after I get my second 4000ulf. I will run what I find past you guys first though!
Oh, my 2017 Cap 1400's sold, and the first out of the dual 4000ulf's I plan to run is on order!
Congrats on selling the 1400’s! And double congrats on ordering the Cap 4000!
As far as room correction software goes, just keep in mind it can be a fickle beast. I am by no means an expert, but I would like to share an opinion of mine based on participating in this forum for the past few years. I invite others to jump in as well.
Some people love Audyssey, but I’ve also seen a couple folks, whom I respect, turn their backs on Audyssey in the past few years. There was some debate about it over in the PSA thread a few weeks back, and it was very interesting for those that are thinking about making the switch. From what I’ve seen, people with high efficiency speakers seem to have some issues with Audyssey, claiming it squashes the dynamics of their speakers while making the FR flat. I’m not sure how this translates to other, non HE speakers, as I spend my time exclusively in the PSA/JTR/DIY threads. I just wanted to bring it up before people go blindly into the light.
For a reference point, I myself own a Denon x4000 specifically because it has Audyssey xt32, and had intended for it to replace my pioneer. The x4000 sounds good, but I do prefer the pioneer as it sounds more aggressive. I noticed I like the x4000 better with Audyssey turned off, and I’ve seen others say the same.
Anyway, my point here is, do some research and make sure you understand what you are getting. Audyssey may or may not be an improvement for you. It does work for a lot of people, but apparently not everyone.
