Mike...that looks great. How well does the masking work?
Works great. I got dual motor control with stops for 2.37, 2.0, 1.85 and 1.78. Works smoothly and pretty quick.

Now that the Lumagen has the improved upscaling and sharpening feature added, sending source direct to the Lumagen is now important to me. I have this for disc (Oppo 203), though I rarely watch a disc that is not 4K, but I need it for streaming. Roku is what I had been using, but Roku upscales everything, unless you manually go in and change it each time you want to watch anything that was 1080P content. That would suck to do each time.

So I ordered the Nvidia Shield Pro with FLIRC. Will add the 3rd party APP called Refresh Rate and that will send correct frame rate and resolution for Netflix and VUDU. Read that it may still be a problem with Amazon. Need to set it up and confirm if working correctly. Should receive the Nvidia Shield Pro Thursday. Will be controlling it with a Harmony Elite.

Making some changes to my sub system. Two of my subs were underpowered. I was only feeding 1,200 watts RMS to my REXXX-18 and 1,200 RMS to my Maelstrom-X 18" subs. I just ordered a new amp. A Crest Pro 9200. https://peaveycommercialaudio.com/product/pro-9200/
This new amp will be run bridged and can do 6,500 watts RMS. Will use the new amp with the REXXX-18. Then I will be able to put the Maelstrom-X 18 on an NU6000 by itself, so it should get around 2,000 watts RMS. 

Already had 10 gauge wire run to several of my outlets, so only had to switch the breaker to a 30 amp and install a twist lock 30 amp outlet (Nema L5-30R). Then ordered the parts to make a 30 amp relay so that amp can be powered on by my sequencer.

I was seriously underpowering my REXXX-18 and my MaelstromX-18. Increasing power to the REXXX by a little over 5 times and nearly doubling power to the MaelstromX.

Adding the new amp and increasing the wattage to one of my other subs, means reworking my calibration. Have spent a fair amount of time using PEQ and then running Audyssey APP. Pretty happy with my frequency response and curve. I have played with correction to 300, 500, 1,200, 2,000 and 5,000hz vs full range. My room does not have much hard surface exposed and along with absorption panels, floor to ceiling heavy velvet curtains, I did not hear an improvement when I reduced the room correction frequency range. So I am running correction full range. 

Here is the left and right speaker curve from Audyssey App. My LCR's are capable of full range, but I run them as small with 40hz crossover to subs. Audyssey calibrated my LCR's flat to 20hz. I bumped up the response 3db at 30hz to give them that slope. Frequency response was smoother, before introducing the tilt. The tilt caused a few jaggies to appear.

Going to retire my Marantz AV7703 from my HT room. Getting the Audio Control Maestro X7 to replace the AV7703. The 7703 will be going into my family room system.

I looked up MSRP and saw the X9 first! 😳 Even so, I hope street price of the X7 is a little more forgiving?!
