Why do I keep getting the feeling that Bruce will take off a wig when the show is cancelled and admit it was all a hoax for television?

Great review. My surrounds are smaller so that probably makes a big difference with something that was mixed for 4 full size discrete speakers.
That's the great thing about these audiophile...

I was being facetious. Yes, many QQ people are fire breathing, surround sound or death types. If there was a way to hook up a refrigerator to a surround system, more than one of them would have tried...

This is another major problem. The revolving door between the government and corporations. Both sides are guilty of this.

I saw the reviews on QQ. I should have inserted IMO in my post. Everyone has his preferences. I'm just not crazy about it. I seriously suggest getting it for the stereo alone. It's that good. If you...

The only reason to buy this is the stereo version which is superlative. I do agree with acebreathe, the song selection could be better. If you're only looking for surround, save your money.

The ultimate goal is to eventually dump all analog and only offer HDMI, where than can apply HDCP to everything. They also want to dump physical media so they can charge you on a PPV basis. That...

It's because of the analog sunset according to the guys at DBStalk. Perhaps there are some bugs in the last FW upgrade that need to be addressed.

I've been getting the HDCP warning as well. D* has activated the copy flag for all HD channels, not just the premiums.

Apologies if you were confused. I thought it was common knowledge at AVS. I don't think either Directv or Dish is even 25 years old. E* is for Echostar, parent company of Dish Network.

Reactions have been underwhelming at Head-fi, to say the least. The 400s is voiced to be very similar to the 400i, at a lower price point. To me the 400i was dreadfully dull sounding. At the $300...

It looks like D* has added a copy flag to all their HD channels. Have you guys worked out a solution to this problem, one that doesn't involve unplugging the HDMI cable?
