The Audioengine 5 is a different model, not a later version of the Audioengine 2; they have co-existed for years. It's similar to how some speaker companies use numbers to differentiate big towers...

I'll enthusiastically second that recommendation. I had the top Velodyne 15" and replaced it with the Seaton Submersive... big improvement. Deep and clean, no bloat.

Cable/Sat packages that require you to pay for SD channels you will never use. Put another way, we should be able to get packages with HD (or better) channels only.

2016 models support both HDR standards, and are brighter. The 9500 supports HDR10 but not Dolby Vision. OLEDS don't have to hit the higher NITS for HDR because they do the black end better. Of...

Any chance that the 2015 LG EF9500 could be firmware updated to process and display Dolby Vision, or is that dependent on hardware?

You could go with a Meridian G68, which I thought sounded better than the Anthem in my room. If you want to feed it HDMI (rather than use the Oppo's analog outs), you'd need the HD-621 companion...

On the volume drop issue, I've been listening pretty much exclusively with DSU engaged. I'll try going without DSU for a few days and see if the issue persists.

Got my 8802A a few weeks ago. One little issue I have is that it occasionally mutes on its own, while watching TV via a Tivo Roamio. I haven't detected a pattern yet (e.g. after a commercial). ...

The G68 is a great unit. If you plan on using sources via HDMI, you'll also have to get the HD-621 which sends audio to the G68 and video to your display.
