Theta is offering a upgrade to the Dreadnaught too, but the other day I was at CEDIA I was so excited hear about the HDMI upgrade I forgot to ask them about the Dreadnaught upgrade....
Which High End Audio company can support upgrades of its products through such a long product life cycle.... it is great to be a Theta user and loyalist...
Frankly, my system sounds so good today and Theta can process to 7.1 in prologic... I am not sure what improvements we can hear when the HDMI upgrade comes. .
Long Post But Heartfelt Ending...
I bought my CBI, I think it was around the end of 96 and never got around to being able to upgrade it, it also being near the beginning of having to put 4 kids through collage.
It's wonderful that Theta was able to make something that worked and still sounded good after so many years, though they did do some minor upgrades for free during that time.
Finally, everybody got outta school 2yrs ago and I went ahead and just bought a new CBIII at a time when everyone was holding off buying anything new because of the question about HDMI.
I told myself not to worry about it because, afterall, this thing is a Casablanca!
Theta had never really left anyone in the lurch before, they even had a program for the discontinued Casa Nova, I was sure they'd do the right thing for us with HDMI.
Of course it turned out more nerve racking then I counted on but here we all are.
Our investment fully protected and waiting for the biggest change in A/V equipt since 2 channels turned into 5.1
Although my old CBI is just collecting dust, I'm not even going to consider what to do with it until my new CBIII comes home with an HDMI card.
I don't know what I'd do with myself while it was out for upgrade otherwise.
I could not have made a better choice in audio gear then to stay with Theta after I traded in my Levinson preamp for that 1st Casablanca.
I'm very grateful to Theta for remaining true to their original promise through this very difficult time.
And I know I speak for alot of people that will never post here when I say that, since this thread has had almost 6,000 hits, with less then 200 posts in just 2 weeks, with no real news until 24hrs. ago. That says something!
