I love it when someone posts an off topic post complaining about off topic posts ;) It appeals to my inner sense of irony.

I'm fairly convinced that they do hear differences. The problem is, the differences they hear have nothing to do with the component being described, in this case HDMI cables. The differences they...

Both? There are three parts to the chain - processor, 88A and power amp(s). Are all three on?

More information is needed. How are you connecting the 8802 to the 88A and on to the amps for example? Did you set up the 88A correctly with the utility tool? Have you run DLCT yet?

Agreed. But not in a Hobbit room like mine. I’d jump on them, or similar, in a bigger room. I like Pro gear - it is such better value for money.

Me too - but as batpig says, you need the room. Like him, I’d be all over those sort of speakers in a heartbeat if I had a room they'd actually fit in.

You mean when you (incorrectly) said DTS dominates the home market, you meant in terms of immersive audio? How does that work, given that DTS currently has no hardware support and one Bluray?
