I upgraded a 7=8 year old Hsu VTFmk2 to the HFV15HP and the sound quality boost was fantastic, it was the bigger improvement than the power and depth. But part of that was because I could move the...

Hey no trouble. Unfortunately every other thing I was going to mention has already been brought up, except that I'd test Netflix on a computer to make sure it isn't the isp throttling, and if not...

My room is 18'x13.75' and I sit about 12' back because sitting closer (10'-12') puts me in a bass null that sucks out the bass. I have my single fv15hp mid point of the rear wall, about 3.5' behind...

While more power is always better don't get too caught up in it, 75W to 110W doesn't get much more volume. IIRC you need to double power for every 3 dB of SPL. Look more at the power supply for...

As noted it isn't an issue anyway, but it's interesting that the oppo105 has lip sync adjustment built in to add or subtract delay. +50ms to -200 IIRC. I assume it must be holding the video signal...
