      I want to jump on this so bad but I want networking capabilities so bad. Waiting for a deal for the 2112CI model... not sure it will happen. Should I just cut my losses, run an HDMI with audio from my computer, and go for this?

      By the way both this model and the 2112CI are getting great reviews on avsforum. Apparently the Audyssey MultEQ XT makes a difference over regular Audyssey MultEQ so that's another reason I might not grab this.

      I've had this for about a year and the audyssey multi EQ makes a big difference. It EQs every driver including the sub, and does the usual time alignment and phase bit. I had an old Harman Kardon 325 in my bedroom that finally died after many years of abuse, it only had time alignment and x-over points. It was pushing BIC America DV84 towers for the front, DV62si booshelfs for surround, DV62CLRS center, with Velodyne Impact 10 sub in a 15x20 bedroom :p I thought it was ok, nothing compared to the Marantz 7005, Martin Logan Electrostats with a monster of a Velodyne DD15 sub in my living room, but ok for a bedroom.

      After the HK died I picked this up from Amazon(6th Ave actually) for $385(new) and it was night and day. It brought the cheapy BICs alive for music and made the stage fantastic for movies, it also managed to tame the slight boominess the Velodyne had and made it almost completely transparent. I gave it 6 listening positions around the bed and no matter which side you are on the imaging is absolutely fantastic for movies. For music it brought out warmth and tone I didn't think possible for the budget speakers, but they sound pretty damn good now. I am really impressed with it overall, and for the price it is FANTASTIC.

      I never heard my living room setup without the calibration, I had it cal'd by a pro that did standing wave analysis and all that fun stuff the day I got it. Considering the cost of that setup compared to what is in the bedroom, I am astonished with the level of detail MultiEq was able to pull off with the BICs.
