Chess, you're crazy!!! Well, not really, I just felt like I was missing out. I know I have a particular concert Bluray home that the HD format is actually way less enjoyable than the DD5.1. Damn it, I can't remember which one it is though. I reca

While I'm honestly not a big fan of either, I've seen both and they both put on a quality show. I bet it was a good time.

Sorry, haven't bought a boombox since the 80s. I'm holding out for the Axiom gear but volume is no longer a big concern. My neighbors have gotten old. Ya, that's right the "neighbors" have gotten old.

Agreed. I typically prefer the Bluray HD mixes of movie soundtracks when comparing them to their DVD counterparts. I dont know if I would be capable of listening to a DD5.1 track on a bluray when its HD counterpart is there waiting. I would feel d

Well some displays are coming out now that even the professional calibrators are saying come from the factory with pre-sets that are on-par with a calibrated system. The new line of Sony 4K projectors are getting a lot of praise. So are the JVCs. I

Can you enjoy HD audio formats over the onkyo? (dolbytrue hd, dts master etc) If not, definitely time to upgrade. I know what you are saying about the joneses completely. Having moved to PEI, a "good" system here is a HTIB to most. All
