@davewantsmoore So if I'm not mistaken, what you are saying is that the human ear is not to be trusted when it comes to home audio. Apparently, we all need to invest in expensive equipment, which will tell us when our ears are experiencing audio nirvana.....Ha, Ha, Ha! I would have thought that it is the human ear....above all other considerations...which will tell us when the measuring equipment has finally got it right. When it comes to music (or the appreciation of sound reproduction), give me the human ear every time.
I for one won't be purchasing any of this fancy equipment and I'll bet my britches that I'll still hit on the right spot (after some experimentation) for positioning of subs or any speaker for that matter.
