    There are a few different flavors of MCACC.

    The 1014TX automaticly sets speaker level and distance as well as a 5 band automaic room-eq. This is the same as the Elite 52TX

    The 914 only does speaker levels and distances.

    The Elite 54TX and Elite 56TXi do speaker level, distance, and 7 band room-eq. I believe the Elite 59TXi does 9 band room-eq.

    I'm just wondering.. how does the 1014tx automatically do the adjustments? Does it come with a mic that you position in your desired seating location?
    I'm picking my 1014 up this weekend so any help i could get tweaking it would be great.

    Mike,

    Yes the 1014 comes with a mic. It takes less than 5 minutes.

    Does the microphone lie in the seat or does it need to be positioned at about where the ear level would be in a sitting position?

    Ear level is ideal. They recommend you use a tripod. I don't have one so I just sat it carefully on the seatback where i normally sit, which is about ear level (give or take a few inches). Seemed to produce decent results. One of these days I'll borrow my buddy's DVE and RS SPL meter and try manual tweaking for the first time to see what a difference that might make.

    The mic has a little clip on it. I clipped it on my shirt high up near my chin like a TV announcer.
