Have not seen much threads about it. Just what does it do? Been looking at a 3803 for a 7 speaker system, and want best for movies. Am holding back because is not THX ultra2. Is a real price jump for those that are THX ultra2 certified and am unsure how much extra it provides or just what it does. Anyone know?


Thanks

THX Ultra 2 is a standard as well as a post processor. Its the best consumers have available to them short of one being an oil tycoon. If you're really into home theater and insist upon the best as well as the latest technology you can't go wrong with a THX Ultra 2 AV AMP. However, after having said that you must keep in mind that there is no consumer available 7.1 software. If you're listening to anything other than DTS ES you are listening to a fancy matrixed 5.1. Also, the difference between good ol' DD 5.1 and DTS ES, DD EX, and THX-ES is very subtle. Most people would be hard pressed to hear the difference. I guess what one has to decide is if that subtleness is worth the dollars. Your call!
