I like the THX modes. They are nice on some soundtracks that are a bit over the top bright.
Allan, this is a purests device. There is no added video in the audio chain -thus there is no on-screen display. Moreover, the serial connection for control can be isolated electrically so there is no extra electrical charge to float around the unit..
Neil posted this (Ceenhead) below:
The balanced unit uses a linear power supply stage and dumps all of the legacy video switching interfaces as well as adding the transformerless balanced outputs.
This combines to give the balanced unit a better SNR as noted:
For the Cinema Rhapsody Balanced
Digital Input: 111dB THD: 0.00070%
Analog Input: 116dB THD: 0.00070%
Analog Bypass: 116dB THD: 0.00040%
Add in the PEQ and the CEDIA release of Trinnov based room correction (4,8, or 12 channels) and you've got state of the art nirvana. I'm sure Richard (or Neil) can add more...
Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.
