I'll probably get the Rattle That Lock CD/Blu-ray deluxe edition as well. I was very lucky to score two decent tickets at face value for the April 11th show at Madison Square Garden :).

Thank you both for your thoughts :). I was looking at an AVM 50 on Audiogon but that won't work. I'll be staying with the XMC-1 and Dirac for now as it's a great prepro but does have a few bugs.
