Hmmm, just wondering out loud here, but . . . . . . .
Everyone is only talking about DVD players and getting the DD HD or DTS HD MA out of them, but can't. So maybe, just MAYBE . . . . . DirecTV and the cable companies might be the ones to deliver unto us the ability to light those purdy DD HD and DTS HD MA lights on the 805? What I mean, is as its been beaten to death how the players MUST do the decoding due to studio intent, maybe it will soon be the HD TV stations, and newer equipment that support HDMI 1.3, that will use the recievers for decoding???? Just a thought. but I think could be in the future for us. After all, I don't think there is a set top box yet that decodes the audio, is there?
And now for 2 other questions concerning my new Panasonic 58PZ700U plasma:
1) has anyone seen or knows if it will do the 1080p/24? And as was mentioned, then 805 does pass that through
2) has anyone with the 805 (or even the 605) tried using their TV's internal speakers as the front channel? Would the 805 blow them out? I live in an apartment, so never get a chance anyway to test the limits
I also ask this question because my old 1st gen JVC HD-ILA actually had the option to use its speakers as the center channel in an HT setup. Would sure free up my Definative front to be used as a mono rear surround to make my system a 6.1
Lastly, has any of you ever looked at, or tried the Definative Mythos series of tower speakers? I totally LOVE mine!!!!!!! At my 2nd to last apartment back in CA, I had a complete set of the old Energy Connesuer (sp?) series speakers. For the fronts I have the C8, a matching center, and dipolar rears. But when I bought a condo (before forced by job to move to Texas), the C8's were just too huge to be placed out in the open area where I set up the TV. I found these Definative Mythos One towers to not only work great, but because how elegant they looked, and how slim they were, they were not an eyesore sitting out in the open. And though not as huge as the Energy C8's, they put out just fine.
