! LOL about the TV - it does look awfully tiny now with all these monsters surrounding it.
We plan to get a new TV next year, hoping that the HDR enabled OLED displays come way down in price so we can consider a 65".
Buying a new TV will almost certainly lead to also buying a new AVR. I'm in no hurry to drop another few grand this year.
As for grills, my wife likes the one I created for the 1299, so I'll probably replicate that approach.
She wants them all to have grills, but I would prefer to keep the face of the subs exposed (they are so pretty!)
, I did not consider the 1099 as being "hot" on the high frequency side.
Now the 1299 does seem to be a bit more in your face (to me) than the 1099 (more laid back) - based on a quick test without letting the 1099 break in as of yet.
These adjectives are woefully inadequate to convey meaning, so I should wait until I can measure things so we have some facts to deal with.
