I just got the same receiver at the end of November and I love it. I am only running 7.1 though as I really have no desire to mess with the front high/wide setup. Mcacc will do the speaker distances and phase control. It also does EQ down to 60hz but nothing lower. I did a lot of research before I bought the receiver because there are a lot of die hard audacity fans out there because of the sub EQ and there are a lot of different opinions of how much the sub EQ really adds to the overall sound quality. Ultimately I decided it wasn't that important to me and when with the Pioneer and I am very happy with it. The only thing I noticed is that when Mcacc finished it's calibration the sub level was set really low. I checked it with my SPL meter and it was about 7 decibels lower than the rest of my speakers. I adjusted it back up manually and now it sounds great.
