True, but that also means substantial CPU impact on the server and a loss of image quality because it's on-the-fly encoding.

I was trying to make clear what the S790 natively recognizes. With...

That seems to be about the size of it. Very unfortunate. The Funais are probably the best way to go out of the whole lot. Not what I expected, but I have never been satisfied with my old Philips...

The budget is a bit flexible. The x3000 was something I couldn't not jump at, because that is a $600 unit I got for $400. In fact Best Buy seems to be out of them now.

I'm watching the x3000s...

Sorry, I meant in general. The step up unit, besides a couple additional inputs (and Audyssey Gold), only adds 10 watts per channel.

In theory that's an improvement, but 10 watts, even per...

Okay, will definitely reset the the crossover to 80hz for all speakers. That's what I thought.

All speakers are set to small.

After the system self calibrated it had weird crossovers (different for each speaker).
