I just bought a Samsung PN58b540 plasma TV. I don't have a sound system yet, so imagine how thrilled I was when the wife said, "We need surround sound!"
I'm going to assemble my own system, so I figure I should start with the receiver as the focus. I've spent hours reading these forums and shopping for receivers, and I'm just as confused as ever.
One feature I'm curious about is 1080p upscaling. If I plug my Xbox 360 into a receiver that upscales, and my eyes are 12' away from the TV, will I even be able to tell the difference?
And if it would make a difference, do all receivers upscale the same? Are some better than others? If I get a receiver without upscaling, it'll save me some dough. Besides the Xbox, is there any other device that really benefits from upscaling? I'm sure someone has an opinion.
