I hear you Jack, the dual subwoofers is my main concern, I wish I could get a product that has Audyssey SubEQ HT only, that would be the ideal solution for me. I don't know if my room is acoustically perfect, I spend countless hours with placement and listening and using the tools on the side of my head but would really like something in a receiver that deals with LFE strictly.Jeff,
That is actually awesome that you have such an acoustically sound room. SubEQ HT was just the absolute perfect application considering I am using 2 different subwoofers and the thrust of my enthusiasm for Audyssey is the effect on the Subwoofer. This sentiment was the same when I was using a single subwoofer and many do believe that where RoomEQ in general provides the most beneficial effect is with the Sub/LFE.
With the Denon, I actually have been switching back and forth between Bypassing FL/FR and full XT32. I wish that Onkyo offered this option. Apologies if the current Onkyos are now offering this.
