You might have missed my follow up post, so just in case I'll post again. I ordered the 4722's by mistake instead of the 4722n, so the shipped price is 1150, not the 1090 that they quoted me which was for the 4722.
In answer to your question, yes I'll have the standard CD to sell. In fact, they told me that I won't get the upgraded CD for at least 4-6 weeks. I'm totally fine with that, it will be interesting to compare the sound of the 2 CD's after getting used to the first one.

Today, I discovered something very interesting about the speakers. After I integrated them in the system, I realized that the FR in REW was dropping up to 8db from 300-800Hz. FR wouldn't drop right away. It goes gradually down and by 600dB, its up to 8db lower and then slowing starts going up. I thought it was my room. So I took out all the panels out and tested. No matter what I did, I couldn't get rid of that 8db slope. Finally, today I found out why. Its my AT screen. Its a weive AT screen and my speakers are 8" away from it. If I take away the screen, FR is much better (almost flat). With screen on, there comes the slope. Now, if I bring the speakers very close to screen like around 1-2", FR gets better and slope is like 4db instead of 8db. I can have them this close but I'm a bit concern about having the low frequency drivers this close to the border of screen.
Do any of you have this issue? If I bring the speakers very close to screen border, would it cause any issue???? BTW, I use dirac and it helps alot to recover but still its not completely flat.
I'm wondering about this too. When I had the 215's behind the screen I wasn't too worried about the frame of the screen blocking part of one of the drivers because the crossover is so low, and the drivers are only playing from 350hz ish and down. However with the 4722's the crossover is what, around 900 hz or something like that? Like you I'm glad I have Dirac to help with that.

My ceiling is only 7' 9" to be exact, but I'm not too worried about it. I ALWAYS watch movies reclined. I might start off sitting up at the beginning but it never lasts. That puts my head pretty far from the ceiling. I've noticed that everyone else that comes over does the same, my wife sits up a little more but she doesn't care about Atmos.
