Ascent had a buzz going like 10 years ago on those CMT-340, as I recall. Are they still the same speakers? Did the buzz die down or do I just not notice it anymore?

Well, I wouldn't use domes as surrounds with horns up front!

3rd HDMI input has ARC (Audio Return Channel) if your receiver supports it. It not, TV has optical output which you can input to your AVR.

I went from 50" to 60" F8500, sitting just under 10 feet away. It makes a significant difference. That's for 16x9 content; I watch movies on the projector with 120".

Wait a sec... how would you get 8 12-AWG (assuming here) wires into that single connector?
Can you please post a picture of what it actually looks like with all the wires into it?

Lame in the sense that not only do we get two archers in costumes, but they both ride motorcycles and decide to ride past each other as if riding horses in medieval times, and miss.
