Just my 2 cents
Looks like a guy in Germany doing high dollar mods to popular equipment. He charges, round numbers, $5500 to do the Bryston SP3. Here's the link:
Considering the MSRP of the SP3 and Bryston's work to date, I'm always fascinated that a company like Bryston has never figured out how they could improve there own equipment with these mods.
Which HTPC software currently does DTS Neo X? Experimenting with it might be fun.
To what processor are you referring?
I used to do exactly the same minus the trinnov. I just find windows a steaming heap
of mess to deal with. I am much happier with simply using itunes and airplay now. The downside is that itunes doesnt do multigenre support or multiartist support like J river.
I investigated meridian sooloos but again you cant really manipulate your library on the fly with that setup.
Itunes is also annoying in that it does not pre-cache any music. There is a lag between songs when you are flipping between songs (for tag editing, etc.)
Honestly I think ALL music software and hardware is flawed in some ways, including j-rivers.
Take j-river, sooloos, itunes, and a few others out there, merge the best features, and there is some greatness to be had with existing technology.
What about the Trinnov Altitude - isn't that allegedly being released in the fall of 2014 (September as per the Trinnov site and what I believe Curt said on the Altitude mini-thread?)
Of course, it's unclear what codecs if any will be processed by it (quite likely Atmos at a minimum, but it's not officially confirmed), so perhaps that should be included with an asterisk for now.
Anyway, for those that haven't read it:
Denon 4311 with XT32 and Audyssey Pro
Oppo 93 and 103
Sherwood R-972 with its version of the Trinnov Optimizer
MiniDSP 10x10 HD
PSB Imagine T2, Center, and Surrounds (as of 5/2014); HSU ULS-15 subs (2)
