The processor upgrade for my Denon AVR 5308ci was $1000 not including any shipping that had to be done. The HDCP upgrade will most-likely also be a processor upgrade since D&M probably used chips not...

Energy Take Classic.

They make a 5.0 set without sub or a 5.1 set with a small sub. They'll sound better than the Bose, but I only recommend these for small rooms ( < 10' x 10' ) or if the...

Reference is around 85dB. Peaks are 105dB.

ProMonitor 1000 are OK but the SM ( Studio Monitor ) series will be better. Depending on amplification, the PM 1000 might be able to hit 105dB peaks....

Micca MB42 are $60 a pair on Amazon. The Micca MB42X are $100 a pair. Also look at the Dayton DTA-120 T-Amp or a Lepai T-Amp. There are loads of T-amps to choose from but they are ALL pretty-much...

If the entire light engine was replaced, then it could only be the mirror ( which they cleaned ), the screen, or your source. I replaced the DMD in my 2007 xx833 65" set ( which I no longer have ) 18...
