You have all the dirt dont you?
Hope all the new formats come out before I have to upgrade my Casa Nova to the Casa Nova 2.
Either way I am plenty happy with great five channel not to mention my appartment can't fit a seven channel or six channel system.
I feel bad though because everytime I hear about a new surround format I find my-self loving it.
Because of the upgrade junkies who have to have the latest surround format and who will probably get burnt year after year for some time to come.
Guess I'm just glad to be with a company who waits till a format sticks before they bother endorsing it. But my machine just runs on different fuel than the Black Box Crowds do. J/K
Isn't it nice to have a modular pre-amp. Just the other day I slid out my analog card blew the dus off and put it back in. The only bad thing is I'm going to have to change out that analog board one day http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif
and replace it with a 7.1 version. I can wait till Theta's ready to endorse a new format though or else buy a smart surround Jr. if I have to have EX? (doubt it)
The japanese bastards are going to milk us every year with there throw away units stop letting them F^&* You. Get yourself a Theta and it will pay for itself over the long run! Not to mention sound alot better.
Just an ignorant opinion from someone who almost got the RX-V1 and onkyo integra DTR 9.1 (much better than the 989 but also much more exspensive) glad I pulled it together. Spizz will always be there to reassure me that I made the right choice.
