Why on earth would they suddenly decide to change the laser?

But even if it happened, so what? Are you mourning the loss of VHS?

I had a huge collection of movies on VHS. As soon as I saw the...

It has to cost something to include the DVD, and I am guessing the consumer pays for it. That's another way they could reduce the price of the Bluray then. And it has a knock-on effect on reduced...

But you wouldn’t have to part with anything. You could keep the old DVD player until it died a natural death if you wanted to. You could even use it to play DVDs if you didn’t want to use the Bluray...

That's right - that was my point. If they stopped making DVDs people would switch to Bluray. This would bring us one medium and would help reduce Bluray prices and there is no downside at all. Legacy...

My point was that currently they have no incentive to ditch the antiquated and inferior DVD players. If DVD were to be totally replaced by Bluray, how long do you think it would be before ICE systems...

Ceiling height on the demos I attended was about 8 feet. I would think you are OK. Wide dispersion is good. Audyssey will work the way it has always worked - it's long since been able to EQ 11...

You asked if Atmos justifies the expense. I say it does. There is no need to scrap main speakers. Of course there is an entry cost - at the least it is a new AVR and a set of Atmos modules. The cost...
