It will give you a wider soundstage...

Are you referring to AVS posters who have heard the Aeomax, or just the Aero? They are not the same speaker. The hope is that the fourth-generation BMR has improved and extended the driver's...

You have to find the right audience. It is a great TV, and to those who know it it has some value. I suggest you post this on the Don't Dump Your CRT RPTV thread somewhat down on this page.

I have no way of knowing whether these units are down converting to 480, and then re-converting to 1080i.
