I thought that the hardware in the AVM 60 treated the 2 subwoofer ports as 1, with a single timing and PEQ. If so the it will not replace the need for miniDSP if you have multiple subs located at different distances from the MLPs.
Also REW does much more than analyze the frequency response of the speakers in the room. It also measures distortion, impulse response, decay with waterfall and spectrogram, RT60, etc.. I am really looking forward to using ARC on my Mac and being able to use some of new features, but I also anticipate I'll still need REW for fine tuning the room.
