Emcade, if you think speakers have flat in room response I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. The dsp manages the crap the room sticks you with. Not everything can be dealt with via room treatment.

I am really enjoying my 3400. As with most things in high end, whether someone could live with it long term depends on their priorities. It does not quite have the mid-range magic of a good SET tube amp, but I find its mid-range to be very natural sounding, and the soundstage overall fuller and somehow more "complete" than other amps I've had, with excellent imaging as well. The bass is also tighter and deeper than I've had, though this is hard to compare with some other amps from the past, since I had different speakers in those days.
The Room Perfect is very nice, though how it important it is may depend upon the challenges of the room. Since my system is in the living room with very little in the way of room treatments, it is nice to have.
In all, I'm very happy with both the sound and versatility of the 3400, though it did take a little time to get used to the loss of the SET sound. I feel sure that if I went back now, there are more things that I would miss about the Lyngdorf. Honestly, convenience is also part of the equation. But the sonics are excellent as well, at least for my tastes.
I hope that helps.
I just received the 3400 and am trying to run Room Perfect but I can't seem to get it started. As soon as I run it, I hear a sound coming out of my left speaker (not the right) and I get the Signal Error and it prompts me to check my microphone connection. Anyone else with this issue?
The 3400 comes with a microphone that connects to the XLR to XLR microphone cable which then connects to a XLR to mini-jack which goes into the front "Mic" socket. I've tried rebooting as well but to no avail. Same error each time as I try to get Room Perfect to run.
For those that have had this issue, any ways you can think of to get it to work? For those that have not had this issue, any idea as to what I might be doing wrong? Maybe the microphone is defective?
