Glad to hear that. My replacement panel has several thousand hours on it now and it still looks very good with minimal "blobs". More like a couple of "hot spots" on the right hand side where one of...

Glad you are enjoying it! In my case as well, the Darbee does upgrade the video experience. I may try "pop", but I'm happy with 40% on Hi-Def so far.

I'm sure the 1038be's are amazing speakers after spending 6 months with my Aria 948's. I'm convinced the 948's are a bargain at the $5k price point. I'd probably have to leapfrog the be line to...

Yes, I've had quite a few lock ups when switching inputs on my 105D. Same as you, have to power cycle and start over.
