I agree, if it's based upon WAF, I would choose the Dreadnaught IV. Since my amp is in a cabinet and not seen, I would choose the better sounding amp and not have to worry about looks. Either way,...

I still think it will be interesting to here from folks who have listened to both ATI Signature and Prometheus in the same system. I agree with some comments about system synergy, so one amp might...

I definitely agree that Theta looks better, but it's more expensive too. Regarding resale value, I'm not so sure about that, from what I've seen on Audiogon with previous Dreadnaught's....

Hi Ron,

I think Steve gave you a terrific answer, as he usually does. The DN4 should definitely be better than the DN3, and the DN4 will most likely run cooler than the ATI signature.

I did a quick glance at the article, but not a full read of it yet. Just wondering, was it his best monoblock amp ever or best Class D monoblock ever? Seemed like the other amps...

Hi Sam Ash,

Based upon screen samples, I think that the Darkstar is much better with angles than the BD 1.4. However, since I have not seen a full size screen of the Darkstar (I hope to see one...

Hi Steve,

Actually, that's the wrong one. The one I'm referring to is going for $18K for the pair on A'gon. Check out the description... :):):)

Hi Sam Ash,

Sure. So far, I have not been looking for sparklies/shimmer, so I don't have a comment there. I've been looking for contrast, clarity, ambient light capabilities, and angles - so...

Rejecting light from the side, like a window, is difficult for any ambient light screen. Some may do it a little better than others, but it's still a compromise nonetheless. That's why I don't...

I don't like the off angle viewing of the SI 1.4. I have a sample, and just moving over 3'-5' to one side of it shows too much of a compromise. I helped a friend install his 1.4 (current...

Hi Sam Ash,

That is a great question! Actually, my favorite screen material is the Darkstar 1.4. However, my room is not a dedicated space. It's a "great" room that has a family room, dining...

By the way, I forgot to mention one other advantage of the Darkstar - the image with the Darkstar 1.4 is sharper than both the BD 1.4 and the DNP 2.3.

Hi Mike,

You would think it would lose the gain, and it probably does, compared to having the projector about mid-screen. However, it's still comparable to the BD 1.4, with respect to gain, when...
