That is big news... You guys have to try Pan's Labyrinth's 7.1 DTS MA soundtrack.. amazing.

There are more than a handful of [op amps] that sound so good that most designers want to be using them as opposed to discreet transistors. Dave Reich, Theta 2009

Finally!

Three weeks late but it looks like the free V2 upgrade (7.1 PCM via HDMI and a couple of bug fixes) is ready for download:

Just think, in another 19 months, Theta Casablanca users will be all the way to 5.1 on HDMI (maybe) (or not)

Thanx Jeff. Since I have less than a dozen 7.1 titles, discrete 7.1 input is not as big a deal for me as HDMI connectivity or room correction was.

Still, I'm surprised how much they can squeeze out of the ol' girl. Upon release, it could only input 1080i/60 and 5.1 PCM. Last summer they gave us 1080p/24/50/60 and this year we got 7.1 PCM.

Who knows, if they delay their next platform any longer, we may end up with PLIIz height channels. Heh.

Agreed (re: # of 7.1 titles). To this day, the 7.1 release of Pan's Labrynth is the most impressive sonic experience ever in my theater.

I have that on HD DVD (my only 7.1 title on that format). Loved it in the theatres, but never got around to re-watching it at home. Time to peel off the shrink wrap (and grab a box of kleenex).

EQ? Halcro never figured out how to get the scaler to work. EQ was light years away!!

My EQ is outboard!!
