Looks really good on paper, but no experience with any of these. My active time with advanced [prosound] systems ended in 2000 when we were still stacking CRT projectors to get some semblance of film...

Can't comment about the CM w/DVR, but the CM7001 that it is [was?] based on I got to replace a dead CM7000 was a bad mistake in that my old HD RPTV doesn't display 720P, which is what the 7001...

Only one way to interpret it since I'm not you and have no clue how well the electronics blend everything together WRT your hearing, so all I can say is that there's no reason to swap the DTS10 for...

Example 5 in the owner's manual will get you a 4 ohm load to a single amp [or bridged] channel, i.e. each driver's VCs are wired in series, then the driver's are wired in parallel.
