An earlier version of the Musical Fidelity (the V-LPS) was measured by a German audio magazine at slightly less than 80 pF IIRC. The current version is probably similar. Official specs from the...

What is Comcast doing locally for the HD channels? Is it still overcompressed MPEG-2, or have they finally moved into the 21st century?

You can't know that your ISP was throttling anything. Things aren't that simple. It's much more likely that the server was doing the throttling, or that there was no deliberate throttling but...
