Its not to much more. My .02
thanks pf728. its just that the 919 is $130 less (at current prices at amazon). The other thing is that I currently have just a DVD HTiB (no HDMI output) and a turntable. I'm currently in the process of upgrading my system to the 919. Thinking of getting those KEF speakers
(fell in love with them at a local store, and they cost quite a bit, but will be going for those mostly). And I'll be getting a PS3 Slim as my blu-ray player, since its the best when it comes to blu-ray, and I also get to game a bit to relax. I will also be connecting my comp, which has an HDMI out.
So, the connections I'd be needing would be:
1) PS3 Slim to 919 via HDMI
2) Comp to 919 via HDMI
3) Denon Turntable to 919 via RCA
4) 919 to 37" LCD (mostly Samsung...yet to buy) via HDMI
5) 919 to 5.1 KEF Speakers
(yet to buy)
6) Tata Sky Satellite Set-Top Box (with no HDMI output) to 919 via component and co-axial
So, I don't think I would be needing the 1019, since I would be having an HDMI input to spare (if my satellite dish providers ever upgrade to a box with HDMI). And I'm guessing, the Samsung would be able to achieve upscaling on its own.
I haven't yet bought anything, the only things I have right now are the Tata Sky Box and my Denon Turntable (and the old Sony DVD HTiB which I'll be getting rid off). But will be making my purchases soon (will be ordering the 919 on boxing day mostly) and then will be building up my HT.
The main reason for my earlier post was to ask people here, if they felt the KEF Speakers
would be a good match for the 919.
Anyone's free to offer their suggestions, and correct me if I'm going wrong anywhere. Would be glad to hear them.
