Well....My 3808 and I were finally in the same place as of last night. I spent a few hours hooking everything up and called it a night as I didn't want to wake the whole house up with test tones. Got the setup done this morning and all my inputs set up.
Quick review is I love it, it sounds gorgious and I am all smiles. Plus this is a great excuse to watch all kinds of movies today and test this thing out. I am now realizing the awesome benefit of having all inputs go through the HDMI as my Sony Bravia has always had a little trouble picking up the input changes from my harmony. Now I just stay on the same input all the time! Got the 3808 working on the harmony with no issues. Sound wise, I think the sound is very crisp and pairs excellently with my Klipsch reference speakers. Its so great to hear the speakers come alive again after sitting dormant for 4 months (post my old pionner reciever dieing on me). Well...Off to go watch some more clips from great sound movies.
So far tested:
-Matrix (Various awesome scenes)
-V for Vendetta (end)
-Matrix Reloaded (Various awesome scenes)
Next on the list:
-Spider Man 2 (powering up doc ocs machine)
-Star Wars Episode 1 (pod race action)
-Star Wars Episode 2 (Boba fetts sonic grenades)
-Jarassic Park (Enter the T-Rex)
as wlel as any other awesome sound tests I can think of.
Does anyone else have any suggestions, I have a lot of DVDs so I may have whatever movie you suggest.
