This has been a significant upgrade for me and I am loving it! I started the upgrade process last summer when I got the PS3. It is my first BD player. Then I replaced a 5 year old 50 inch RCA DLP with the 60 inch Pioneer 6020.
The first step of my audio system upgrade was to add the HSU sub. It replaced an ancient pair of Dr. Hsu's first model, the HRSW10, which I bought in the early '90s. Just this week I have completed my audio upgrade with both the addition of a new AV receiver and the other Hsu speakers. The speakers replaced the old legacy speakers, which I previously described in post #1370. The new receiver replaces a 5 year old Yamaha RX-V2400. The 2400 is still very nice but lacks HDMI connections, the ability to decode the new high bitrate Codecs, network capability, and too much other stuff that the 3900 has to go into here.
Based on my first few hours of listening, I am very pleased with my Hsu speakers. They integrate into a seamless soundstage and, when I am listening to a high bitrate Codec on a BD movie, provide a level of sonic excellence I had not experienced before.
