Thought I would update:
I bought the new Oppo BDP-83 Blu-Ray player, it arrived a few days ago and it is sitting in my living room in the box. I am planning on hooking it up tonight in the HT and using it there temporarily until the Denon DVD-A1UDCI is released (which would fuse perfectly with my Denon AVP...).
I know that the A1UDCI may be overkill and I might not even hear a difference, but I want to use the shared timing clock between the two Denon pieces.
My first Sim2 Lumis had an issue, so it is being replaced by Jason this Saturday. He'll be dropping by to calibrate it in the HT as well. I also bought a 150" diagonal Elite Screens EZ-Cinema that I can move around outside the house. I bought an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 6500UB to use with the screen, to show outdoor Blu-Ray and DVD movies for the kids at night, either while they swim in the pool or while they are sitting in the yard. I am going to use my Samson Resolv 80a active studio monitors for sound, since I can just plug those directly into the back of a Blu-Ray player; thus I won't need to mess with a preamplifier, preprocessor or receiver. I like that I will be able to move the setup around anywhere in the backyard with a long orange extension cord.
