I bought the REF1000s earlier and upgraded them to MkII specs.

The REF500M sounded better than the REF1000 imho

Thiel's FB page just updated with a new subwoofer.

And I use the word New liberally. It's pretty much what you'd expect of a subwoofer from PSB. With nice wood finishes that Thiel is known for.

I suspect we might want to wait for the dust to settle on HDMI2/4k/HDCP2.2 as well.

I expect there'll be some reason why we'd need HDMI2.1 and HDCP 2.3 next year

I thought we were told it was going to be simultaneously only 11.2 but with connections for up to 13.2

Has this changed?

I did say it was fine for music :)

But Source Code had a major explosion within the first 5 minutes that kept repeating.

I have some bad news. The SS2 I had was great for music. But when I was watching Source Code, I noticed the rattling was quite severe. Had to tune myS1 integrator to 25Hz to get rid of it.

Marantz AV8802 13.2 XLR processor - HDMI 2.0 ISF - Wifi + Bluetooth details

Nice. Now if only we could get
7.2 + wides + front height + rear height (or top front and top back)

How does the notation work for wides?

9.2.4v

You do realize HP and Compaq are the same company right? They still have the two brands taking up shelf and counter space in the shops.

Ditto with Colgate and Darlie.

The Denon 4520 which shares the basics with the 8801 shows the same info as the 8801.

The new screen came with the models the following year - for which there was no 8801 equivalent.

Perhaps Oppo could launch a new 11x model next year that does Atmos decoding with 11 or 13.x outputs.

That could be a potential partner for the trinnov box
