My older Pioneer vsx-21txh only had 1 mic position. Apparently, they've either improved MCACC since then, or the SC-67 has a more advanced version.

On my SC-05, the MCACC main measure does one position. The 3 position measurement comes from the standing wave correction. I had to go to the advanced measurements specifically for the standing wave portion and tell it to calibrate 3 positions. Otherwise it will just default to one. Not sure if the new incarnations of MCACC are the same.

Yeah, Alex; I was confident that your thirst for knowledge was such that you wouldn't hesitate to read all of the 59,000 posts there.

well, an update:

This buy was all on the basis of receiving a new job and getting my pension payout from current job. They are definitely taking their time, but FINALLY, have started calling my references.

I just spoke to my one of my references and he said she talked about how I was pretty much already hired. The start date would be February 18th. I find out for sure next week.

If that's the case, I'll be putting in my notice next week and receiving my pension payout roughly 6 weeks later.

It looks like I have a line on getting a Pioneer Elite SC-68 for below a 1000 dollars. I sure hope that pans out

Yeah. I'm jealous. I paid $1330 for the SC-67.

Is the SC-68 new, used or refurbished?

I'm loving my SC-67 right now. Only a little more control over the bass would make me happier. But I'm not complaining. I like a lot of bass, as long as the other frequencies are there too. But it's something I can play around with later, when I have the time for it.

Are you getting it out of the back of someones Van. smile The lowest I've seen the SC-68 go for is around $1900.

lol no not back of a van. It will be slightly used. A friend of mine bought it and he's not a big fan of it. He's pretty loaded and he owes me a good deal. I gave him a bunch of equipment back in the day.

I don't know what about it he doesn't like, but he said he finds it "complicated". I like complicated smile

He said 800-1000 for it, if and when he gets a new amp

Good for you; however, I don't know what he'll find that isn't complicated these days - but don't tell him, ha!. With HT, it goes with the territory...
