Mine had a label created but sat in that status for several days and then was just picked up by Fed Ex yesterday so it sounds like we'll be getting ours within a day/few days of one another.

Looks like I might be getting the package early next week. It will be interesting to see if they
released this new batch with yet another firmware update.

In that case, sounds like we might have been included in the same shipment, mine seems to be trending towards a Monday, 09/13 delivery.

Was hoping to get it installed for NFL opening weekend, but oh well, now I have all next week to tinker with it.

One of the two packages in my shipment is arriving today. I'm going to presume it's the microphone hoping against hope that it's actually the pre/pro.

Damn you!! I have to wait until Monday. Alaska's port of entry strikes again.


Do tell what your initial reactions are.

There's an owner on AVS Forum who tells how you can load calibration curve data into the AT-300 unit with a FAT32 formatted SD card. It's helpful if you have REW or some similar room calc program and a compatible mic as the room EQ program ToneWinner uses is pretty basic and not as precise.

Yeah, I imagine GA's a lot easier than where you are.

Will do, it arrived just before I stepped out for lunch so aside from opening up the box, I haven't even seen it naked yet, haha.

Too funny, I was JUST looking at that thread during lunch. That being, that sounds very fancy for a simple guy like me.

I set up my unit over the weekend and WOW, consider me impressed!

Set up is pretty straight forward, but man, the manual is awful...there are misspelled words, little to no descriptions as to what specific parameter settings/modes/options actually do, etc. I get the feeling that it was a Chinese to English translation job and not everything comes across well, so be prepared to do some internet research if there's something specific you need answered. Also, while the GUI gets the job done, it leaves something to be desired in terms of layout, font and overall polish...that type of stuff. That being said, it gets the job done and you can't really complain given the price point of this thing.

I am still waiting on my pro calibration microphone to arrive as well as the delivery of few more HDMI cables to get everything connected the way I want, so my thoughts are based solely on rudimentary calibration settings as I simply plugged in the speaker distances from my previous Denon receiver and nothing else (no SPL-calibrated level settings were made). Based on those distance settings and the connections I made (no video signals are currently routed through the unit itself, only audio), I REALLY liked the sound. The best way for me to describe it was it is very full sounding, detailed and immersive. Now some of my impression might be a function of going from a 2002 Denon receiver being used as a front end prior to this unit, but even then, the Denon was fully calibrated whereas the TW isn't. I watched a lot of TV including several movies I had recorded on my DVR as well as a full day of NFL opening Sunday action and everything sounded fantastic. I also listened to plenty of two-channel music and was easily impressed by the level of detail I was now hearing in songs I was extremely familiar with and chose specifically for my listening tests.

I was also impressed by the level of flexibility with this unit. While it's been a while since I've set up a pre/pro (the Integra DTC 9.8 in my main basement system is now more than a handful of years old), I don't quite recall having this amount of options. That being said, I'm a usually a set it and forget type guy and having this many options at my finger tips usually increases the likelihood that I'm going to screw something up, but rest assured, if you want to spend a considerable amount of time delving into all the parameters this thing offers, you'll stay busy for a bit.

Those are my initial impressions so far, but I'll return with some more once I get this thing SPL calibrated and connected the way I want to on the video side with the new HDMI cables.

EDIT: I'll also add my impressions on the remote here a bit.

Mine is out for delivery right now. It's supposed to be dropped off before noon... that includes the mic.

NICE! Yeah, my mic showed today as the delivery date, but looks to still be at the hub in Memphis, so not sure if it'll get here.
