Just wanted to provide an update on my experience now that the theater is about a month old. The wife and I've been getting plenty of use out of it and have been completely blown away by the performance of the entire setup. Before we had the HT, the wife and I typically reserved our film watching to a weekend only affair if we were lucky. That has changed tremendously now. We've seen over 23 blu-rays by now and have joined Blockbuster Online to help feed our addiction to our constant need for more HDM's! Friends and family that have seen the setup have been equally impressed. HD sports are enjoyable on the 92" screen, but I think I've been spoiled by blu-ray as I am now able to pick up any imperfections in an average HD DBS broadcast.
Although I am completely content with my setup for now, a friend of mine has recently gotten me intrigued about a possible future upgrade. He just upgraded his sound setup. (New speakers and Dolby TrueHD capable receiver). My receiver has HDMI inputs, but is only able to pass video not sound (my sound is passed through via digital toslink cable). From my understanding you would need an HDMI input that will pass both sound and video in order to decode lossless audio such as Dolby TrueHD. Although, I have not personally been able to compare the difference between Dolby TrueHD and DTS/Dolby Digital 5.1, I wonder if it is even worth exploring yet? To any that have had the opportunity to compare, is the upgrade to lossless audio dramatic?
