I always see JohnK as a strictly by the numbers type of guy. If the numbers or chart says it's good then it has to be good, or good enough. Myself, I prefer to throw away all the numbers and charts and let my senses tell me whether it's good or not.

That's why I shun Denon/Audyssey as inferior to Pioneer/MCACC of near equal value. That's also why I have 6 speaker boxes surrounding the TV. More sounds better. Although 2 would probably be good enough, numbers wise.
