I sold my Denon 4311 and kept the Sherwood. That's what you should expect.
I might be using two subs now my hsu and kreisel. Will it work with only multeq since it eqs them as one?

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

I have a dual opposed sub in one spot, so I have no idea how it will handle 2 subs. I have a feeling Trinnov will compensate somehow.

Trinnov will see both as a single unit, it can't match level on those individually. So, you need to level match each sub. After that, Trinnov will level match both subs together to mains.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Hello, my R-972 will be arriving Tuesday and I have a question. Currently I am running an Onkyo 707 with all 11 speaker positions used. I then select a 7.1 combination for playback, PLIIz, PLIIx, or DSX wide/heights. My plan is to connect the Surround Back/Multi to a speaker selector that is connected to the SB, FH, and FW speakers. Then run Trinnov and save each setup to one of the three Positions. I am getting my self prepared for the numerous trials and resets but I think the end results will be pretty awesome. Inevitably I will need to do a reset in between positions. Will this erase any positions that are already calibrated?

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

When you do a reset the receiver goes back to it's original settings so this will erase any previous calibrations and remove any bass target files you may have uploaded. Basically a reset will put the 972 back to it's original state that it came in when new.

What your planning on doing sounds interesting, I would definitely like to hear how it works out for you.

Trinnov does EQ the subs and does a decent job. I got a little better results with my Onkyo 5508 and XT32 on the sub channel but I still sold the Onkyo and kept the 972 because Trinnov and it's 3D re-mapping is something I cannot give up.

I would say that is you have your speakers in the exact proper location that the Trinnov spatial re-mapping has little to nothing to correct than my choice would be Audyssey XT32. In my system XT32 did a little better job in EQ'ing the speakers and subs and overall I preferred the Onkyo 5508 for music listening.

I will definitely post my results. Hopefully once I get the mic set and reading the angles properly, I can get my three positions calibrated relatively problem free.

Edit:

I found this when I was looking for the bass files, it says to reset after loading the file.

Its ok I can try and hopefully I dont cause trouble.

Please open the attached zip file and uncompress. Please copy all of the factory.hex files to USB drive root position. (ex. E:\factory.hex)
To update this firmware, turn ON the 972 and wait for relay click. Once you hear the relay click, change the input to USB. When NO DEVICE displayed, please insert the USB drive to the front USB slot.

Update will automatically start.

After finished, please reset the receiver by following the attached instruction.

To successfully reset, you need to start with the unit in the Standby Mode. To put
the unit in the standby mode simply press the standby button when the unit is On or unplug the
power cord from 120V AC and then plug it back in. Once in Standby Mode, press and hold
down the STANDBY & MEMO/ENTER buttons simultaneously for at least 3 seconds. This
will reset the unit and it will turn on automatically. If the reset was successful, you should notice
that the receiver powers up at 87.5 FM . If not, repeat the reset process

Having waded through this and other threads there are people using ceilings speakers with Trinnov. The speakers had aim-able tweeters from what I can recall.
