Haha. My father said to me, when I was little, and told him that I had come second in the 800 yard/metre race at school sports day, that I was "first of the losers". Hard words to a 10 year old boy...

We all have experience with AccuEQ. All we have to do is turn off the EQ system in our AVR and, voila, we have AccuEQ :)

LOL. You surely are. Has it ever occurred to you that all this expense might be better applied to areas where it makes a real difference to SQ? I only change electronics if the old one is broken or...

It should be pretty easy to see/hear a 10dB bass boost, I'd hope ;) I am fairly confident that if my dual Submersives are running 10dB hot, I will know. And so will my neighbours ;) And it will show...

That is my decision too. And yes, I backed HD-DVD and have a few players and about 100 discs. I bought almost all of them for knock-down prices after Bluray won.
