 Well yeah basically it goes like that. One need a bit of practise to be able to handle the whole operation smoothly, speaker angles need to be setup right etc. There's lots of button pushing and different modes of operation that need to be understood well for optimum results. Headphone talk you can find lots in this thread. Preferably you need good open ones with linear frequency and minimal distortion, Stax, HD800 etc.
 What I referred as "mixing desk" was just something that you can hook up the signals to. I have no idea how audio is setup in a real theatre, but sometimes finding suitable analog inputs is a real pain - there might even not be any analog inputs if everything is handled digitally (or they are hidden in the racks with impossible access), so you might need own multichannel analog to digital converter etc. Studios use mainly XLR, there you need suitable RCA->XLR...
Read: http://www.smyth-research.com/technology.html   ("The measurements" section already tells everything you asked!!) http://www.smyth-research.com/downloads/A8manual.pdf ...and many reviews around for it which explain these things in quite detail   You need to have Realiser with you when taking measurements and output the test tones from it's RCA outputs for all 2-8 channels. Obviously a huge undertaking in a real theatre (you would need to rent it for few hours,...
You need HDMI out from your PC. If you don't have one, get a cheap extra $30 GPU with one.   But at this stage I probably would wait for the rumoured next Smyth product, unless you can find a used Realiser.
Wherever one lives, there's probably a bunch of mixing studios, schools, hifi shops etc withing driving distance. You just have to do the dirty work of finding and talking to them.
For sale a mint pair of HE-560. I prefer my HD800 so these gotta go.   Originally bought last august, but just received mint new ones from warranty - no distortions, rattling or anything, perfectly working pair! I've just burned them in for a week with few hours of head time.   You will get mint "Focus-A" pads as free extra, which I bought separately (worth 40€). They provide a little smoother sound. Read the HE-560 threads etc if you don't know what I'm talking...
 1) Yes there already exists VST chain to play back everything on PC only. You can find the instructions somewhere in our dropbox archives: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wipepbk9pbcpyeu/4O-sO6ivtM   (read the prir thread for some more infos, and search this thread for "vst" etc) 2) Yes I posted some info not long ago in this thread, http://www.head-fi.org/t/418401/long-awaited-smyth-svs-realiser-now-available-for-purchase/2580#post_10252001
I completely believe you can make better looking csd graphs with eq. Can I have candy now?   How this or even owning expensive equipment (in addition to lots and lots of cheap gear) means anything by itself, I'm at a complete loss. Even the most believable people around have not come to any conclusions on how graphs actually sound. Atleast I've made some first-hand listening experiences with wide range of gear and learned something. Perhaps you can someday too when mommy...
Yeah vid, it's not like you aren't on any other threads outside Sound Science or even completely other forums spewing the exact same gospel.. as soon as someone hints something about headphone value or such, you come in for the kill with snarky one liners "oh yeah you can get that for $10 if you know what you are doing", "overpriced toy junk" etc. Well if that's been keeping you entertained for 10 years, keep it going.     edit: Too bad all that enthusiasm isn't...
You can buy a used 20 year old washing machine for pennies and it probably works, maybe just install a new motor, your clothes will get clean. But umm yeah. Idiots buy brand new Míele for convenience right? Good thing we have vid here to talk some sense to us.
