I scored a great deal on a used MRX 720 from a reputable guy on Canuck Audio Mart. Should be a nice step up from the Denon 4500.

Nah, I should be able to recoup most of the cost by selling my barely used Denon. And my wife got her swimming pool a couple of summers ago. I've got at least a few more years of being able to use that to justify my expensive gadget buys.

You might want to keep the Denon to power Algonquins in the pool area.

The Anthem has a Zone 2 if I ever want to do that.

What if she wants to kick back and chill to some lame tunes with her friends poolside while you and your buds bang your heads to sick notes in the basement?

She's happy listening on tiny Bluetooth speakers. Yuck.

Got the MRX 720 up and running. Out of the box, it sounded far better than the Denon (and that's with external amplification in both cases). Cleaner, and more detailed, with better imaging. The gap widened even further after running ARC Genesis.

Those curves you posted are very impressive. I see the target curves for the front M5s are downward tilting. ARC therefore must be determining the designed response of the speaker and attempting to correct to it for your room. All indications are it did a marvelous job. Does it allow you to adjust the target curve slope?
