I'm using a 3-channel McIntosh MC303 amp to power my B&W 803D2's and the matching center channel. It sounds great. A huge improvement over using my Integra 9 channel amp to power them.

Hi Ian

I agree with you that there are very few lossy BD's from LG. That's why I've concluded that it does not make economic sense for me to join another monthly subscription plan.

I don't think that you can do that, but I could be wrong. I know you can upconvert SD to HD, but 2D to 3D I'm not sure.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've got some cheap speakers boxed away somewhere in my basement, so I can give it a try.

The front L/R speakers are B&W 802D-2's, the amp is McIntosh MC303 and the subs are two SVS PB-13 Ultras. Decent gear I think for movies.


Thanks for your help.

Just to set the record straight, the calibrator did a fantastic job with my 7.2 channel surround sound system. It sounds much better than it ever did before. So I've no reason to believe that he did...

It is hard to describe what "not as nice" means except to say that the music in the A/V store sounds clearer, with crisper highs and lower lows. In short, if I close my eyes, it sounds like I am...
