Oh, and on the second question, for my next theater, I am hoping to get the new Lexicon MP-20. It costs considerably more than Anthem but they do accept trade in of the older processors. While that will still cost more than the Anthem, it won't hurt as much as buying one new
. The Marantz is a popular choice. Alas, there is a big shortage of them due to earthquake in Japan and its room EQ I hear is nothing great. One option is to get a process of your choice and augment it with JBL BassQ for multi-sub processing. That way, you get some of the technology in the new Lexicon.
