After a year of reading all bout this technology, I'm very excited about MQA finally coming to life in products and content. The timing aspects of this tech are big, very big.

While I truly admire the Trinnov stuff, and I almost bought an MC setup for speaker and DRC management, even their stuff is prone to obsolesce (to a degree), the Altitude is indeed a tour-de-force...

^^^ Thanks for the update GSR!

Man, that's a big step down in value over the past 12 months. Not that I'm worried, as I plan to keep this unit to drive a secondary system sometime in the future. ...

Curious about the used AVP pricing, I went over to eBay, and while I didn't see the AVP, I did find something much better (for me): a brand-new digital audio board for $100!

Ah, thanks for the clarification, then you likely are finding the 'mid-bass suck-out' typical of dipoles the primary area of objection. And I agree, on most models, that's a problem, as the spectral...

Heh, same here grassy, I'm tempted by the 8802 with the Atmos, but I need to invest some real effort on the overheads, so I'll wait at least another year before diving in to that pool. In the...

Also saw it at the same theater this past Wednesday. I live an hour away, so love the reserved seating aspect.

The Atmos was subtle, but there. Like others have commented, this movie played in a...

Multiple subs are a great way to go, and mid-points are often better than corners as they do even out the in-room energy. According to the tests done at Harman, four at mid-points is best. Here is...

Thanks Al, but I'm quite familiar with all this. Adapters should only use pins 2 and 3 to go to a coax link.
