    I am thinking about getting an ICBM but would like some feedback firts. My receiver is a Sony 5ES, I have the RP-91 hooked up to one of the multi channel imputs already but have not tried playing any DVD-A music yet. I also have a SACD player (Sony ES222) but I am happy with its bass management so the ICBM would be used only for DVD-A.

    Do you have a silo to house it?

    I think the last ICBM's were built at least a couple of decades ago...cold war and all...so DVD-A is probably not supported.

    Robert, ICBM's are still in full use. Haven't you heard that Outlaw, using their multiple connections with South-East Asian operatives due to their overabundance of 950 orders, have been able to import ICBM's and offer them at an internet-direct price of less than $300? I guess not.[​IMG]

    The ICBM is essential if you want to hear Multi-Channel sound out of your RP91 and you do not have 5 full range speakers.
    If your like me and use smaller speakers with a large sub then the ICBM will give you bass management for DVDA.
    Your DVDA's will sound better cause the bass will be directed to your sub(s).
    I love mine! [​IMG]

    I have the Technics DVD-A10. The predecessor to the 91 it has better audio and significatly less sophisticated video (no progressive scan!).

    If you want to enjoy DVD-A IMO the ICBM is necessary. If you've got a separate pre/pro and receiver it offers even more flexibility. My ICBM does most of my bass management (except the rears which the receiver handles for delay purposes).
