I personally think it looks AWESOME! Those meaty cables all routed neatly and everything stacked so straight and pretty.

What miniDSP would you recommend? It will have to be XLR balanced inputs outputs and I don't want to spend multi $K. I can say at this point, after watching a few movies maybe 5min each (Starwars, Tron, Cars) the sound-stage, mid-bass, dynamics is soooooooooooo much better in everyday on all channels compared to my broken(keyword and need to stress that) 80.1 with calibration. I dont know why anyone would use any mode but the Dolby up scaling mode.
Called Dolby Surround <--- Really Dolby? that was the best you could come up with? We don't want to confuse the consumers out there anything, right? wow. anyway,
However, I have not watch an Atmos movie yet, but what I do know already is that bass management EQ will be a must!!!!! Subs are noticeably not right in casual listen. I am sure their is much correction needed (maybe just a Velodyne SMS-1). But other than that, I think so far, I am VERY amazed as to how well it sounds with no calibration.
I was also considering the Audyssey 8 MultEQ Pro with XLR but this would still leave the top channels uncalibrated. I dont know, I would also have to pay for service and software.
All I know is the bass thing, WILL have to be addressed.
