Maybe its wishful thinking on my part.
Thats my impression as well after upgrading to 1.30. The blacks look much richer and inkier rather than charcoal grayish/black. Does anyone know what 1.30 actually upgraded?
I really think the series hit a low point with last night's episode. I have been buying episodes on Amazon On Demand but after last night's episode I am pulling the plug on that. The show has so much potential and they really do need better writers. I am just going to start watching the show for free on Hulu.

I am planning on placing the 807Vs in an in-wall cabinet below my Panasonic 54V10. I am hoping that the slightly upward tilting angle of the MOPADS will result in a better sound field and tighter...
I thought I read earlier in the this thread that the 800 series are heavier in weight versus the 700 series of bookshelf speakers? I wish they made still made the 707. Otherwise my understanding is that they use the same components. I like the 807 but it's msrp is a little beyond my budget.
Amen to that brother. I enjoy how they are focusing on the Romans and their relationship with their slaves.
