Good advice if we could all follow it. Not much differnt than computers these days. In 6 to 12 months everything is outdated. At least the A51 will be good for a long time. I will add the A21 when I get the next 7/11 job done.
The Cary Cinema 11 has an add on box coming for the HD Audio that will have video capability as well. Due out late this year (2008).
Going to live without HDMI until it settles down.
