The SP3 is sonically better. Plus the AV950 does not have 7.1 analog pass through inputs, and has no balanced digital inputs which I find to be quite important since I purchased the Bryston BDP-2....

My speakers play 96db with 1 watt input @ 1 meter. They are so efficient I drive them with a 25 wpc amp. :eek: This rating is at 6 ohms like yours.

I'm a little confused. Can the Foundation decode multi-channel DSD without converting to PCM for crossover? I checked the manual and it lists only 5.1 and 7.1 PCM.:confused:

It makes sense to me to buy the latest good processor for movies and a good or even great D/A converter. It's easier to keep up with format changes in the 2k range than the 10k range.:eek:;)

It's only going to be useless if you allow it to be useless. For me, I will never adopt ATMOS as the novelty of surround sound in movies has worn off on me, and I'd never mount speakers in the...

I know what you mean about the sound quality of the music. I think that the producers altered the sound to make it appear holographic or create an ambiance or hall/auditorium effect. The bass did not...
