I picked up my 2910 on Saturday (store demo unit,for $299 at NFM in Omaha
). I have not had a chance to really do anything more than connect the 6 analog & 1 toslink cable. I have a couple of questions:
1. How can you find out the mfg date?
2. How can you tell how many hours the laser has been used?
3. What is all of the talk about firmware upgrades? Why are they necessary if they don't come from the mfg (for me atleast, this is a pricey bit of equipment to be hacking on)?
4. Why is the sacd set-up so hard, I put one surround sacd disc in and only got stereo with nothing to my sub? I've tried reading thru all of the posts, but they are becoming very confusing. No HDMI or DVI out for me, I'm an early adapter (mits-ws55807 & onkyo tx-sr700 rcvr).
Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.
