    My 5.1 system is anchored by an Anthem MRX 520 reciever. The ARC software to which you are referring in an excellent means to overcome room issues, level match speaker output and set frequencies for bass management. And of course it's a sister company to Paradigm and Martin Logan.

    There's probably a parametric equalizer in the AVR as well that allows you to fine tune the auto settings.

    I've just bought a pair of these, I believe they’re Mk2.

    I've read good things about those, and reasonably priced.

    I never liked the sound of Polk or Klipsch. I've never heard any Wharfedale models. I have a pair of 20 year old B&W floor standing speakers and I love them. Don't worry about specs, just go by ears only. There's no way to really know for sure until you bring a pair home and listen for a week or two.
