A-HA!!!! You guys finally went too far. You were trying to push the inside joke envelope and you pushed it just a tad too much. It's now perfectly clear to me what's going on. This D1 thing is all an elaborate ruse coordinated via PM, probably with kickbacks from Bravo involved. I'm a little miffed you guys didn't see fit to include me however.
First the story about how a $2.00 capacitor swap turns a unit widely regarded as a reliability POS into a rock solid Krell. Brilliant. Next, the testimonials, each one better than the last. Good thinking there - the power of group persuasion, get 'em expecting it'll be better, and they'll think it's better. Must be a PhD psychiatrist amongst you conspirators. Clever.
How far were you going to take it? The D1 on the 4805 bests HD-DVD on my IN76? Composite on the D1 looks better than Blu-Ray on my Ruby? We'll never know, 'cause everyone is on to you guys now.
Actually I'm just pissed all this stuff didn't come out a year ago. If I wasn't planning on getting rid of my 4805 soon I'd get a D1 and see what all this hub-bub is about.
