The Mini-3D has only 2 inputs and one output (all HDMI). Is that really enough for you? I guess so, plus the next model up (XS-3D) is $1000 more. In my setup I'd need the XS. The XE is too rich for my blood, at least for its funcrion in my system. After reading the XE/Duo comparison in Home theater, I'm curious about the XS even though I have the Duo, which meets my needs. The phrase, "last bit of performance you'll find in the Lumagen line" got my mind swirling a bit. But since I'm only a "semi" hobbyist, the other side of me should talk me out of buying one and selling off the Duo. Should. Also, the Lumagen menus are more cmplex to navigate. Are you finding that with the Mini-3D?
