Conclusion: Truth be told, the R-972 is probably a little too advanced for the people who need it the most. But for the home theater enthusiast who has no choice but to place speakers in funky places, it could be an absolute lifesaver. The 2D and 3D remap have uses that aren't limited to mere booboo-patching, as well. The system allows you to store up to three seating positions, so I assigned one of the presets to my wife's favorite couch, which is perpendicular to the screen.
