Your experience dispenses with some mistaken notions brought up in the comments—regarding lossless audio, running Windows, Blu-ray etc.—Do you think you will upgrade your machine to 2160P at some point?
I fully acknowledge and agree with your Ferrari point. Hell, a not-inconsequential part of the reason I got my MP was so that I could fiddle with it and see what it could do in a home theater capacity. And it's been a lot of fun playing around with it.
That being said, it was too bulky for my main rack (which drives my main HT and master bedroom). So it's in my man room/ home office, which I call my 'experiment room.' Thankfully, that room had enough space for the 7.2 setup and the other screens. So it's a lot of fun. It then serves the media from my 24-bay FlexRAID box to the rest of the house, including a smaller HTPC and a PCH A-400 that are connected to the Onkyo 3010 in my rack (no idea why the 3010 doesn't get more love BTW -- the dual HDMI outputs being able to simultaneously, without HDMI headaches, supply 2 different rooms with different content has been a boon for us).
Will I get a new MP? Right now I say it's unlikely. Then again, ask me again in a few months after it comes out. I'm sure I'll give you a different answer.
As for updating my display resolution, it will undoubtedly happen with time, but I'm not going to be jumping on the 4k display train until it is more widely adopted and affordable. I'm not going to claim that I'm overly concerned with cost in general, but 4k displays need to mature.
As for the usual Mac FUD, most of us are accustomed to the moth-to-flame haters that invariably show their heads when anything Mac is discussed in the HT realm, and we've learned to ignore it. As someone who runs a 'mixed' household, with numerous macs, windows HTPC's, and media players, I still don't understand the vehemence with which folks choose to confuse being pro-something with being anti-everything-else.
