I honestly think that RB-61IIs or even RB-51IIs would be fine. It's not like there's a whole lot of sound coming out of those speakers. The only problem with the RB-61IIs is that they don't have...

I can't remember if it's called "DTS Sound Test" or "DTS Sound Check" but regardless it was on the Dredd BD. It sends signals to up to 11.1 speakers so you can make sure DTS Neo:X is working as...

In terms of a given HDMI chain's ability to pass a 4K signal, upscaling is exactly the same as "passing it straight."

Of course HDMI 2.0 is preferable. Higher-than-8-bit color content is...

Not true. You can get 8-bit color 4K at 24Hz/30Hz using HDMI 1.4. Some devices will also allow 4K60 at 60Hz at the 4:2:0 colorspace. I've had my HDMI 1.4 Denon 4520 upscale to 4K and pass that...

Good luck finding a new Panasonic plasma anywhere, much less at a reasonable price. Your best bet right now is to get a Samsung F8500 while you still can, but those are going fast.

Thanks for the heads-up, but the hassle of setting up an HTPC for a minute (to me, perhaps even undetectable) increase in picture quality isn't worth it. I get very little joy out of calibrating my...

It's good for an advertised price, but if you call, you can get A-stock for about $400 less than that advertised B-stock price. :)
