New Marantz NR1601 looks very good -- slim, reasonably powerful, and -- unlike Sherwood AVR mentioned on previous page -- supports upconversion, 3D, 1.4a, and standby passthrough.

It's very new,...

The TVs seem kind of like '09 models and still don't have built-in 3D. I guess, it'll get more exciting whenever they reveal the converter box...

It appears that they will be using a checkerboard pattern to deliver half of the resolution to each eye, so they won't do full 1080p to each eye.

Checkerboard signal will be output by a converter...

Press release seems to indicate that soundbar models will be able to act as center channel and (or?) output to surrounds and subwoofer, so maybe not all that bad for those that don't want to mess...

So do I understand it correctly that, as of now, DirecTV is the best provider to go to for 3D content? Comcast MAY get ESPN 3D, but it looks like DirecTV is the one pushing the envelope.

Yeah, the HD quality on ATV is better than Xbox Marketplace but slightly worse than Vudu. None will trump HD-DVD/Blu-Ray quality for audio & video though.
