I am also noticing the base is lot more pronounced or over bearing at times for my balanced XLR even at -10dB LFE. It was not the case with v3.4. I have speakers and subs configured the same way now as I did before with v3.4 but for 2 channel analog that should not have any impact, right? I was hoping to bypass all processing from MX160. I really miss the Direct option from MX122 and I do not know which is the equivalent feature in 160 that would let me do that. Any idea?
As for the RP, oh yeah, the main reason I bought this PIA unit is mainly for that. I am just waiting for my 30 foot XLR to arrive and then I will definitely measure the room and that will be final judgment of this unit's true quality.
Would you recommend just doing MLP or should I be doing global (or whatever it's called) to let MX160 know what my whole room is like? I don't care much for how it sounds throughout the whole room as I do for MLP...….but Ron's youtube video measures the whole room though it was only for a 2 channel setup. And do I leave the subs in flat at 0 dB without any tweaks so that RP can do it's job dialing the subs in the way it should be? Do I also leave the LFE at 0dB (instead of -10dB that I have now) for RP to do it's magic?
Sorry for all the questions and appreciate the help.
I definitely don't alter the LFE level for different inputs, it's something that doesn't factor in for me, I want everything I hear to be representative of how the system is calibrated. I only alter the voice curves when I want addition bass emphasis say.
It sounds like you need to do the Adjust sub level setting at least even if still waiting to do RP. You need some kind of level reference. Rapallo hit the nail on the head there.
You're going to want have an MLP like most room correction systems to take full advantage. If have people spread out in the room you can switch over to Global regardless. RP will guide you through it all as far a setting sub level, it will pull you up if it's getting the wrong levels and the sub level adjust function can help there too.
Basically the sooner you get that XLR mic cable (I'd be going down the road to get one from an PA equipment hire place to buy or borrow one frankly), the sooner you'll be able to enjoy the MX160's capabilities.

Because this is the only way I can avoid having any handshake issue now while passing video through MX160.
Thanks for the input.
60Hz HDR is definitely an issue so an HDFury 2 is an ideal cost effective solution unless you've got a decent 4K HDR projector that will also benefit from DTM and other useful features in a Lumagen and feel the need to stump up for one. Can't say I've tested that scenario at any stage as I have zero analog audio in my HT.
