Yup I would agree %100 in your situation. Based again on my specific situation, to ditch the 3808 and acquire a 4310 will probably cost me approximately $200 I am excited to try PLIIz and if it doesn't work, it doesn't work.
I will submit that this is getting a little ridiculous as far as how many speakers you have to position. Also you may have caught in that S&V article that DTS is working on their own flavor called "Neo X" which is similar but actually adds another height channel in the back, as well as the two height channels in the front for a grand total of 10 speakers plus a subwoofer.
Oh well, maybe i should just wait for the AVR 4312ci............
